"Research and development is continually hampered by the lack of access to hardware and the inconvenience of large-scale setups, leading to a loss of progress on important projects for many customers," said Dr. T. Symon Chang, president and founder of Tyan Computer Corporation. "In launching the TyanPSC, customers can now experience both the power of supercomputing in the office, and they gain the ground-breaking capability to process their applications or simulations at anytime, whenever they need it, and at a fraction of the cost of a full-scale supercomputers."
"Single- and Dual-Core AMD Opteron processors with Direct Connect Architecture have been applied and proven in many different customer environments, including those running enterprise-class solutions, as well as in the clustering community at large," said Randy Allen, corporate vice president, Server and Workstation Division, AMD (NYSE: AMD). "The TyanPSC can achieve phenomenal performance for many science and research applications by leveraging the strengths of AMD64 technology, which provides native dual-core computing, unrivalled x86 processor performance and leading-edge power management."
"High performance computing has expanded beyond traditionalsupercomputing centers toward workgroups and departments in mainstream industries," said Kyril Faenov, director of Windows high performance computing, Microsoft Corp. "Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003, combined with hardware solutions from partners such as Tyan Computer Corp., enables customers to spend more time innovating and bringing products to market by providing a high performance computing platform that is simple to deploy, operate and integrate with existing systems."
The TyanPSC is currently sampling, and will reach mass production levels in Q2'06.
