FREMONT, CA, November 2nd, 2005 - Many system builders prefer to use a single design in order to expedite builds and leverage from established learning curves. Tyan has taken this fact to heart in the development and release of the Tiger K8WE (S2877), a motherboard that offers both server and workstation flavors in a compact-sized ATX form factor. Features of the Tiger K8WE include the following:
"Tyan and AMD believe in customer-centric innovation, and our continued collaborations are yielding the latest advancements that will help benefit end-users worldwide," said Pat Patla, director, server/workstation marketing, Microprocessor Solutions Sector, AMD (NYSE: AMD). "The AMD Opteron processor with Direct Connect Architecture is designed for system stability and outstanding performance and – along with the latest motherboard from Tyan – helps provide improved system reliability for our customers."
"Many customers across the industry want to realize the power of extremely-scalable, flexible system motherboards, but not at the cost of space or higher-priced system components," stated Danny Hsu, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing at Tyan. "By introducing the Tiger K8WE (S2877), Tyan has effectively provided a platform with the performance to meet demanding applications both in the server and workstation fields, but with a total cost of ownership that makes dual-core, dual-processing performance widely available to customers in multiple markets."
The Tiger K8WE (S2877) is currently sampling to select customers and will be shipping in volume worldwide by end of Q4'05.
