Mobile application security vulnerability report

Taiwan's Iwill will next month ship an EDA/CAD-oriented workstation motherboard capable of supporting up to 64GB of memory.

The DK88 is driven by twin AMD Opteron 2xx series processors. Each connects to a bank of eight DIMM slots designed to hold up to 32GB of ECC-enabled DDR SDRAM.

The board sports a PCI Express x16 and x8 slots for graphics and PCI-X 133 slots for other add-ins. There's an 8MB ATI Rage XL VGA controller on board, for server applications. Networking comes courtesy of twin Broadcom Gigabit Ethernet controllers. The board also features a 3GBps Serial ATA controller with RAID 0, 1 and 0+1 support and the ability to control up to four devices, part of its Nvidia nForce 4 Pro 2200 chipset. There's an IDE controller too, capable of running four EIDE peripherals.

In June, Tyan announced its S4881 motherboard and M4881 daughterboard which together can take up to eight Opteron CPUs and up to 128GB of RAM. The boards - and a server based on them, the Thunder K8QW - are due to ship in volume this quarter.

Iwill did not provide pricing. ®
