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.

well its the sexiest server board i have ever seen then lol
Although it's not like there is much competition as far as looks and server boards go :laugh:

But really right now the board's are not that important, what i really want to see is the new server chips from Intel and AMD. I really hope that they will give me the power i want on a 2U board.

It looks like my old pseudo Quadfather Tyan S2915, witch runs like charm already for 3-4 years! I've never before owned such rock solid and so well thought out motherboard. I simply adore Tyan Motherboards. Still thinking about picking up some cheap Shanghai cpu's on ebay. It is still a great workstation, despite respectable age.
