TYAN® CONTINUES TO ASTOUND WITH NEW SERVER SOLUTIONS

Tyan's S5380 and S5370 Series Deliver Unprecedented Solutions for a Growing Server Market


FREMONT, CA, March 7th, 2006 - Every fine-tuned machine requires the best core components available by which the machine can be built up. The processors, the memory, and the motherboard platform itself must be top-notch in order to provide the speed and power needed to perform the demands of ever-hungry applications. To answer these requirements, Tyan has broken out several new server platforms to meet customer expectations on performance. For high-end performance servers which need expansive I/O and full-scale capabilities there is the Tempest i5000PX (S5380), and for entry to mid-range servers, the Tempest i5000VF (S5370) is the solution.

Both the S5380 and the S5370 are based on Intel® Xeon® 5000 series processor technology (codenamed "Dempsey") with fast core speeds, high-ranking 64-bit technology, and brand-new dual core capabilities than previously-released Intel processors. Starting with the Tempest i5000PX (S5380), features of this full-sized server platform include:
 
  • Support for two (2) Intel® Xeon® 5000 Sequence Processors with dual core support, 64-bit, Intel® Virtualization Technology, built-in anti-virus technology, and much more
  • Uses the Intel 5000P chipset (codenamed "Blackford") with iASM and I/O AT features
  • Supports up to eight (8) modules of Registered DDR2-667/533 ECC FBDIMM memory
  • Gigabit Ethernet ports based on the Intel "Gilgal" controller
  • PCI Express slots, PCI-X slots, and BMC memory socket
     - includes one universal Riser slot for expansion in a rackmount application
  • Remote management features including IPMI 2.0, all in a 12" x 13" SSI EEB form factor
     - the large form factor lends itself to a full-breadth of features designed to meet or exceed
       customer specifications for server components


The Tempest i5000VF (S5370) offers its own set of features to differentiate from its bigger brother, features such as:

  • Support for two (2) Intel® Xeon® 5000 Sequence Processors dual core support, 64-bit, Intel® Virtualization Technology, built-in anti-virus technology, and much more
  • Uses the Intel 5000V chipset (codenamed "Blackford-VS") with iASM and I/O AT features
  • Supports up to 16 GB of Registered DDR2-667/533 ECC FBDIMM memory
  • Gigabit Ethernet ports based on the Intel "Gilgal" controller
  • PCI Express slots, PCI-X slot, and PCI 32-bit slots
  • Integrated Serial ATA-II with RAID levels supported (0, 1)
  • Remote management features including IPMI 2.0, all in a 12" x 10.5" SSI CEB form factor
     - CEB form factor provides for a denser population of servers and a lower total cost of ownership
       (TCO) by compatibility with lower-cost system components


"Many recent advancements in server technology including dual core support and virtualization, built-in security features, and improved manufacturing processes all have lead to a higher level of integrated features available in a single solution," stated Danny Hsu, VP of Sales and Marketing at Tyan Computer Corporation. "In introducing Tyan's new server platform solutions, the Tempest i5000PX (S5380) and Tempest i5000VF (S5370), customers will be able to realize higher performance and efficiency gains on their server applications than ever before thanks to Intel's powerful new technology line-up."

The
Tempest i5000PX (S5380) and Tempest i5000VF (S5370) will both sample in late Q1'06, and will reach mass production levels in mid-Q2'06.
