Tyan Thunder X S1952 Motherboard

Tyan Thunder X is a quality, high performance workstation and server platform for dual processing solutions. Supporting the powerful Intel Pentium II Xeon microprocessors, this system platform is designed around the fast Intel 440GX AGPset.

The Thunder X supports SPD SDRAM memory and  ECC SDRAM. The board's PCI Local Bus and 32-bit AGP bus provide high performance capabilities that are ideal for a server environment with a wide range of demanding applications such as: Ripping, trapping, and rendering.

This integrated system board achieves the highest reliability and is based on an extended ATX form factor. Some of the features included are: integrated dual channel PCI IDE, integrated floppy controller, integrated high speed I/O, Universal Serial Bus, integrated PS/2 mouse connector, System Mangement, and dual channel Ultra2 LVD SCSI port.

The Thunder X is a flexible and expandable system platform with 6 PCI slots and 1 ISA slot. With I/O and drive controller support built on-board, the Thunder X allows many upgrade paths not found on other boards.. With four 168-pin DIMM sockets, the S1952 can provide a very flexible memory configuration of up to 2 GB SPD SDRAM or SDRAM+ECC in addition to the 100 MHz SDRAMs.
