Tyan Thunder K7X S2468 Motherboard

TYAN's Thunder K7X is our next generation dual-processor platform for the AMD Athlon™ MP processor. Like its predecessor (the Thunder K7), this system board provides cutting-edge performance for today's most demanding workstation and server applications, and includes powerful connectivity and storage support features. Based on the AMD-760 MPX chipset, the Thunder K7X utilizes a 66MHz 64-bit PCI bus for blistering I/O performance. It also supports DDR RAM, AGP Pro (as well as integrated VGA), dual LAN controllers, dual-channel Ultra 160 SCSI and more.

- Dual PGA462 ZIF sockets; two onboard VRMs
- Supports up to two AMD Athlon MP processors
- Front-Side Bus support for 266/200MHz

- AMD-760 MPX chipset;
- AMD-762 north bridge & AMD-768 south bridge
- Winbond™ W83627HF Super I/O ASIC

- Four 184-pin 2.5-Volt DDR DIMM sockets
- 25° angled sockets enable rackmount installation
- Supports up to 4GB* of Registered DDR 200/266
- Supports ECC (72-bit) memory modules
* Note: The AMD-760 MPX requires a portion of memory to be reserved for PCI devices. Allocation for these devices is dependent on the number of PCI devices installed, and option ROM for each device. Common configurations will see 3.5GB to 3.8GB of available memory.
