BIOS:

While Tyan utilizes BIOSes from Phoenix Technologies on many of their motherboards, the Thunder n3600M goes with American Megatrends Inc for its BIOS. Specifically running on this testing motherboard was AMI BIOS v8.00.14. Found in the BIOS are all of the normal features one would expect for a high-end server/workstation solution. From this BIOS the temperature for both CPUs can be read as well as two ambient temperatures and all of the fan speeds. The motherboard voltages are reported in a separate area.


As the latest addition to our testing protocol, we had also run Intel's Linux-ready Firmware Developer Kit on this motherboard. When running this firmware testing kit, there were 4 failures, 5 warnings, and 11 passes. The failures were attributed to validating assigned PCI resources, CPU frequency scaling tests, HPET configuration test, and DMI information check. To reiterate, failures within the LFDK do not mean that the motherboard is defective, but that this is a BIOS test suite developed by Intel to improve the BIOS quality by firmware developers.
