TYAN Announces AMD FireStream Compatible GPGPU Server Motherboards

TYAN, an industry-leading server platform manufacturer, and a subsidiary of MiTAC International Corp., today announced four server platforms that are fully compatible with AMD FireStream GPU compute accelerators.

The AMD FireStream GPU compute accelerators are general purpose graphics processing units that deliver exceptional floating point processing capabilities, and are used widely in HPC, cloud and enterprise-scale applications, helping reduce cycle times with up to 2.64 TFLOPs of single precision performance.

“TYAN offers an outstanding selection of platforms that are designed to take full advantage of AMD FireStream GPU compute accelerators,” said Patricia Harrell, director, Stream Computing, AMD (NYSE: AMD). “AMD’s work with TYAN is helping usher in a new generation of exciting form factors and computing capabilities, in large part due to the exceptional performance capabilities of AMD’s graphics technology.”

These four TYAN platforms were designed specifically for GPU computing, and support solutions that range from one AMD FireStream compute accelerator in a 1U server up to eight compute accelerators in a 4U platform. These platforms feature double-wide PCIe 2.0 x16 slots, and meet the special mechanical requirements as well as the power and airflow needs to support AMD FireStream 9170, 9250, 9270, 9350 and 9370 GPU compute accelerators.
  • B7015 8-GPU 4U platform
  • S7025 4-GPU 4U platform
  • S8225 4-GPU 4U platform supports dual AMD Opteron 4100 series processors
  • S8236 Up to 2-GPU rack optimized 2U platform supports dual AMD Opteron 6100 series processors
Kevin Hart, TYAN’s director of product marketing, noted that “these GPGPU platforms, armed with AMD FireStream GPU compute accelerators, deliver shocking floating point performance that is exponentially faster than x86 CPUs in some applications.”

All of these AMD FireStream-compatible server platforms are available worldwide now through TYAN’s authorized distributors. OEM pricing is available upon request. See these models and all TYAN’s latest server boards on display in TYAN’s booth at the Supercomputing 2010 convention in New Orleans, November 15-18.

Nice.

Someone hack up the drivers, time to set records with 8 x GTX480 or HD5970.

Already read the manual this morning ;)

Most models are of a 2+1 1200w configuration, or 2400w with a spare. Also looks like a 3 x 1000w configuration (no spare) is available for a completely maxed out system.

Remember, the top system was made to handle 8 AMD FireStream 9370's. They'd use up about 1800w (load) by themselves.


-Oops. Make that, they they are not different power supply units. It's 1200w @220 and 100w @ 110. I had an old Compaq server like that- 750w per unit at 220v, only 500w at 110v.

Wonder how many FPS i'd get on Minesweeper if i used that ...

Why 6-cores when you could run 12-cores in there? :P Correct me if I'm wrong but the lenghtend socket is for the Magny Cores right?

You can do this already. Search EVGA SR-2

Fanboyism? I really dont understand comments like these, they are totally uncalled for. I run both Intel and AMD and but have there pro's and con's. Intel is faster and more advanced, but tend to run hotter and is more expensive.

AMD on the other hand is cheap and runs cool, but lacks the power Intel has.

Ontopic:

Are those 120mm fans in the front of that chassis? If so, thumbs up for TYAN since my current Xeon server that has like 5 billion 80 and 40mm fans is driving me nuts.

Depending on the prices and performance of AMD's bulldozer based server cpu's compared to intel's upcoming offerings something like the G34 board may be in my future :D

The board to the right would accept the G34 magny cours cpu's and maybe even the G34 interlagos cpu based on the bulldozer architecture thus 16 cores per cpu for 32 total :D

Excluding the current cpu's that multiple offer good value for money (if you had bothered to take a look at them never mind reviews) the board to the right has a G34 socket, in theory that could mean support for the G34 interlagos core cpu.
Are you trying to tell us that the interlagos core based on the bulldozer architecture is fail before it has even been released? do you know something we don't?

Does 32 cores of an upcoming brand new architecture with 8 gpu cores on one board really sound fail to you? if so i would really like to know what impresses you.

And no I'm not a fan boy I'm just cheap thus why I'm still willing to buy AMD cpu's if the price is right and supported by the board i have been using for years, but yes i do have hope for AMD in the future as i remember all of nvidia and intel's failures in the past and how they came back from them.
I guess a few years ago you were saying anything from nvidia and intel was fail? and lust look how wrong you would have been, I'm not saying bulldozer will be good in any way I'm just pointing out that you should think a little more before you post :p

:eek: :roll: i never thought to look that close, surly that is so messed up it does not even work.... wtf happened to it i wonder?

Possibly a non working mock up or something thus any old damaged part would do? although i would have thought non working over visibly damaged would have made more sense for a press image.

60 fps, or whatever is your display's refresh rate.

I think all the talk of the SR2 is kind of beside the point, it is not really aimed at the server market... it's aimed at the crazy expensive overclocking market :laugh:

I admit it would be fun to try overclocking the interlagos core but for normal server usage i would hope stock speeds is all that's needed *hopes for awesome performance and value for money out of interlagos*

i highly doubt you can overclock on any of those boards in #0

they are ment for server stability, not fun!

When i say it would be fun to overclock an interlagos i know really there is no suitable board and really i would be a waste of money, the reason these interest me is exactly what you said, a stable server.

I want a powerful yet relatively affordable server that's 100% stable over it's lifetime, no overclocking or silly fun just stability and power for money, i just really hope interlagos can deliver.

that wasnt meant for you lol, more for those stupid people who compares SR2 with a serverboard, cause yes, either you are stupid or dont know shit

again, not pointed at you bear, not at all:roll:

:laugh: no worry's, i know what you mean.

Although i now have to wonder if anyone has ever bought the SR2 to use as a server board :roll:
