Peak Memory and I/O Bandwidth
Based on the ServerWorks® ServerSet III HE-SL™ chipset, the Thunder HEsl supports peak memory transfer rates of 3.2Gbps, enough headroom for even the most demanding server and workstation applications. In addition, the Thunder HEsl incorporates two fully independent 64-bit PCI buses, reducing bus latency and enabling extremely efficient I/O transfers across all connected PCI devices.
"With its multi-processor design, dual 64-bit PCI buses, and two-way interleaving memory architecture, the Thunder HEsl is an ideal platform for mid-range server applications that require maximum I/O performance" states Steve Hsia, Product Manager at Tyan. "These powerful features, combined with the on-board AGP Pro slot, integrated storage controller, and integrated LAN connection, make the Thunder HEsl the premium workstation platform."
In addition to its high-speed memory and I/O bus architectures, the Thunder HEsl includes integrated high-performance storage and network controllers. These robust features enable you to connect up to thirty Ultra160 SCSI devices over its two SCSI channels, as well as connecting to a 10/100BaseT Ethernet network. Integrating these features down on the systemboard also frees up valuable PCI expansion slots, leaving them available for cutting-edge technologies such as Fibre Channel storage and Gigabit Ethernet.
