Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Tyan today claimed a first - a dual Xeon mobo, shoehorned into the bog-standard ATX board form factor. The upshot means that system builders and OEMs can build smaller servers, maybe cheaper.

The Tyan Tiger i7500 incorporates Intel's E7500 chipset - hence the name. And it's got plenty of server-friendly features - dual independent PCI-X buses and Gigabit and Fast Ethernet LAN ports. The Tiger i7500 comes in two flavours, the S2722GNN, with four standard DIMM sockets for up to 8GB of DDR memory, and the S2722GNN-1U, which has two angled DIMM sockets for up to 4GB of DDR.

Tyan's press release announcing the new mobo contains a curiously unfinished quote from Christopher Lopes, veep at Netlist Inc.

"By populating the Tiger i7500 S2722GNN with 8GB of Netlist DIMMs, customers can realize over $5,000 in memory cost savings, while blazing past competitive servers in performance." And that's it - no mention of any pricing bundle or technology agreement with Tyan. In this absence we refer you to the following press release from Netlist, pitching the claim that its 1GBM DIMMs are so much cheaper than the competition in a little more detail.

The Tiger i7500 is sampling and goes into volume production in October, Tyan says. No prices yet. reg;
