Tyan Tiger K9HE S3970 Preview

While AMD will not officially announce Socket F LGA-1207 with their next-generation Opteron processors for a few more days, we have managed to acquire one of the retail motherboards for this upcoming platform. The Tiger K9HE S3970 (as Tyan will officially call it) supports two AMD Opteron 2000 series processors, ECC Registered DDR2, and more. The Chipset backing this motherboard is the ServerWorks BCM5785 from Broadcom.

Tyan Tempest i5000XL S2692

Since publishing our preview of the Tyan Tempest i5000XL last month, we have received an overwhelming amount of messages from Phoronix readers who have been intrigued by Tyan's joint project with Intel on the Tempest series as well as the Toledo and Tank. While the various Tyan Tempest boards still seem to be in limited quantities, we are back again today with our performance figures for the Tyan i5000XL as well as taking a further look at its GNU/Linux compatibility.

Tyan Tiger i7520SD S5365

Last month we had reported on the Tyan Tempest i5000XL motherboard as well as the Tyan Tiger i7520SD, both of which had their own unique characteristics to the table. However, today we are bringing the remainder of our Tiger i7520SD S5365 review. In this final chapter, we look at its BIOS and real-world performance for this motherboard when combined with Intel's Xeon LV dual-core processors. To recap some of the features, the Tyan Tiger i7520SD S5365 motherboard boasts dual mPGA479 CPU sockets for use with Intel Xeon LV Sossaman processors, E7520 + i6300ESB Chipset, eight DDR2 ECC sockets, triple Gigabit LAN, and finally yet importantly integrated ATI ES1000 video.

ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe WiFi

Introduced back on May 23, 2006 was AMD's Socket AM2. While these processors really did not bring too much to the table other then a DDR2-800 memory controller several motherboard vendors began offering up their new AM2 supportive products. One of the manufacturers that had began offering new products in late May and early June during Computex Taipei 2006 was ASUSTek Computer Inc. ASUS is certainly no newcomer to Phoronix as we have had their products in our labs in the past, and they are renowned with computer enthusiasts and gamers. While the AM2 processors at this time do not deliver too many direct benefits over Socket 939, in front of us today is the M2N32-SLI Deluxe WiFi motherboard, which does deliver on several new ASUSTek enhancements. Not only does this motherboard come with all the usual ASUS innovations we have been accustom to seeing for some time now on their enthusiast products, but also they are now making it more versatile than ever before. Of the extras is an array microphone, 802.11g WiFi-AP Solo, Q-Connector Kit, and the ATX motherboard being powered by an NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI Chipset. With all of the features as well as the price tag for this beast ASUS is certainly targeting the high-end enthusiast market. However, is it a hit or a miss for this award winning company?

Tyan Tiger i7520SD Preview

After looking at the Tyan Tempest i5000XL yesterday, today we are featuring a small preview of the Tiger i7520SD S5365. Rather than taking the Woodcrest LGA-771 route, the Tiger i7520SD features the Lindenhurst Chipset and wields dual mPGA479 sockets for use with Intel's Xeon LV Sossaman processors.

Tyan Tempest i5000XL Preview

With Computex Taipei 2006 wrapping up today, Tyan Computer Corporation was again a heavy-hitter at this year's expo. If you will recall from our coverage last year, Tyan was first to launch an 8-way server solution that was capable of handling up to eight AMD Opteron's in a 4+4 board configuration. This June, Tyan once again has a slew of new products reaching the market. In fact, Tyan has seven new Xeon motherboards based upon the LGA-771 socket that are compatible with Intel Dempsey and Woodcrest processors. Today we have a preview of the Tempest i5000XL.

ASRock AM2NF4G-SATA2

Back on May 23, we had delivered our launch-day preview of the AMD Socket AM2, and with that, we had also taken a quick look at ASRock's AM2NF4G-SATA2 motherboard. Now that we have had the time to complete our testing of this nForce 410 motherboard, we have the remainder of our results available today.

ASRock AM2NF4G-SATA2 Preview

With the AM2 launch this morning, AMD's partners have been quick to jump on this bandwagon with a whole arsenal of new motherboards. Of the products to be shown at this year's Computex Taipei event is the ASRock AM2NF4G-SATA2. Not only does price differentiate this motherboard from the newly established Socket AM2 competition, but also the ASRock AM2NF4G-SATA2 relies upon the already existing GeForce 6100 and nForce 410.

ECS C19-A SLI

The ECS C19-A SLI is an all-around great SLI motherboard for Intel users. The board formally supports Scalable Link Interface using the NVIDIA C19XE + MCP51 Chipset. Other features for this budget solution include Gigabit LAN, and Realtek 8-channel audio. The overclocking abilities are also surprising.
