FREMONT, CA, June 26th, 2006 - TYAN Computer Corp., the world's leading whitebox server platform provider, has begun enabling additional breakthrough performance and energy efficiency on the TYAN Tempest S5380, S5370 and S5372 server motherboard series with the newly released Dual-Core Intel® Xeon®processor 5100 series.
Applications expected to benefit from this increase in performance-per-watt efficiency include high-performance computing (HPC), digital content creation, film and media entertainment development, CAD systems, as well as applications in the bio-sciences and financial systems.
Using the Intel® 5000 series chipset, the TYAN S5380, S5370 and S5372 all offer numerous capabilities to complement the exciting new Intel® Xeon®processor 5100 series architecture. Features such as support for FBDIMM memory technology, PCI Express and PCI-X expansion, multiple network ports, SAS and SATA2 interfaces, and remote management options provide a complete suite of server features.
"By leveraging the new Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® processor 5100 series architecture, customers stand to reap huge benefits from the increase in speed and power, while at the same time realizing immense power savings," stated Danny Hsu, vice president of sales and marketing at TYAN Computer Corp. "Performance of the new architecture is expected to increase up to 125 percent, at only half the power of previously available solutions."
"The Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® processor 5100 series provides TYAN's customers with the capability to maximize performance and reduce power consumption," says Boyd Davis, General Manager Intel's Server Platforms Group Marketing. "The new processors enable the TYAN S5380, S5370 and S5372 platform solutions to offer industry-leading performance-per-watt, powerful virtualization technology and solid reliability."
