TYAN, a server platform design manufacturer and a MiTAC Computing Technology Corporation subsidiary, is offering 2nd Gen AMD EPYC Processor-based server platforms.
TYAN’s first-wave offerings include a 2U single-socket Transport SX TS65-B8036 server and the single-socket Tomcat SX S8036 server motherboard. Powered by AMD EPYC 7002 Series Processors, both platforms are designed to boost performance for the modern datacenter by leveraging PCIe 4.0 and increased memory speed, the company reports. The TS65-S8036 supports 16 DDR4-3200 DIMM slots, 12 front-access hot-swap 3.5-in. and two rear-access hot-swap 2.5-in. drives. The 12 front bays are preconfigured to support up to four NVMe U.2 drives. The S8036 motherboard offers expansion and storage advantages with two NVMe M.2 ports, and up to 12 PCIe 4.0 NVMe and 20 SATA ports in an EATX form factor.
“Featuring high memory bandwidth and high-bandwidth I/O, TYAN’s 2nd Gen AMD EPYC Processor based-platforms are designed to address the most demanding workloads of our datacenter customers,” says Danny Hsu, vice president of MiTAC Computing Technology Corporation's TYAN Business Unit. “Combining all the advantages of AMD EPYC processors allows customers to transform their infrastructure with the right resources to drive performance and reduce bottlenecks.”
“We’re excited and thankful to have our partners supporting the launch of AMD EPYC 7002 Series Processors,” says Scott Aylor, corporate vice president and general manager, Datacenter Solutions Group, AMD. “Their EPYC based solutions are poised to deliver a new standard for modern datacenter customers. With twice the cores, breakthrough performance and embedded security features, all delivered by a leadership architecture, customers can transform their datacenter operations at the pace of their business.”
In addition, TYAN offers drop-in support for AMD EPYC 7002 Series processors on existing platforms through BIOS updates. Customers can enjoy all-new “Zen 2” CPU architecture with up to 64 cores from their current AMD EPYC processor-based platforms.
