Tyan Thunder K8S S2880 Motherboard

Utilizing up to two AMD Opteron™ processors, the Thunder K8S (S2880) platform offers the best solution for rackmount and pedestal servers. The Thunder K8S (S2880) features a high bandwidth integrated memory controller for superior productivity through HyperTransport™ chipset technology to increase overall performance by removing or reducing I/O bottlenecks. Other highlights include low profile I/O ports with strategically placed DIMM slots to allow maximum airflow across the motherboard for efficient system cooling, remote management features, and Serial ATA with RAID capabilities to satisfy the needs of the ultimate server.
