For high-end performance servers which need expansive I/O and full-scale capabilities there is the Tempest i5000PX (S5380) , and for entry to mid-range servers, the Tempest i5000VS (S5372) and the Tempest i5000VF (S5370) are the key solution. Both the S5380 and the S5370 are based on Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® processor 5000 series technology with exceptionally fast core speeds, high-ranking 64-bit technology, built-in virtualization and security, and brand-new dual core capabilities. The Tempest i5000PX (S5380), Tempest i5000VS (S5372), and Tempest i5000VF (S5370) will both sample in mid Q2’06, and will reach mass production levels in late Q2’06.

Every fine-tuned server requires the best core components available in order
to provide the fastest performance possible. The processors, the memory, and the
motherboard platform itself must be top-notch in order to provide the speed and
power needed to perform to the demands of ever-hungry high-end applications. To
answer these requirements, Tyan has broken out several new server platforms to
meet customer expectations on performance. For high-end performance servers
which need expansive I/O and full-scale capabilities there is the Tempest
i5000PX (S5380) , and for entry to mid-range servers, the Tempest i5000VS
(S5372) and the Tempest i5000VF (S5370) are the key solution.

Both the S5380 and the S5370 are based on Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® processor 5000
series technology with exceptionally fast core speeds, high-ranking 64-bit
technology, built-in virtualization and security, and brand-new dual core
capabilities. Starting with the Tempest i5000PX (S5380), features of this
full-sized server platform include:

Support for two (2) Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® processor 5000 series processors,
64-bit, Intel® Virtualization Technology, built-in anti-virus technology, and
much more
Uses the Intel® 5000P chipset with Intel® I/O Acceleration Technology features

Supports up to eight (8) DIMMS of Registered DDR2-667/533 ECC FBDIMM memory
(2) Gigabit Ethernet ports for streamlined network communications
Expansion support with PCI Express slots, PCI-X slots, and BMC memory socket
– includes one universal Riser slot for expansion in a rackmount application
Remote management features including optional IPMI 2.0 support, all in a 12" x
13" SSI EEB form factor – the large form factor lends itself to a full-breadth
of features designed to meet or exceed customer specifications for server
components

The Tempest i5000VS (S5372) offers some of the same great features found in the
S5370, and more:

Support for two (2) Intel® Xeon® 5000 Sequence Processors dual core support,
64-bit, Intel® Virtualization Technology, built-in anti-virus technology, and
much more
Uses the Intel 5000V chipset with I/O AT features
Supports up to six (6) DIMMS of Registered DDR2-667/533 ECC FBDIMM memory
(2) Gigabit Ethernet ports and (1) Fast Ethernet (10/100) port
Expansion support with PCI Express slots, PCI-X slot, and PCI 32-bit slots
Remote management features including IPMI 2.0, all in a 12" x 10.5" SSI CEB form
factor

The Tempest i5000VF (S5370) offers its own set of features to differentiate from
its bigger brother, features such as:

Support for two (2) Intel® Xeon® 5000 Sequence Processors dual core support,
64-bit, Intel® Virtualization Technology, built-in anti-virus technology, and
much more
Uses the Intel® 5000V chipset with I/O AT features
Supports up to four (4) DIMMS of Registered DDR2-667/533 ECC FBDIMM memory
(2) Gigabit Ethernet ports for streamlined network communications
Expansion support with PCI Express slots, PCI-X slot, and PCI 32-bit slots
Remote management features including IPMI 2.0, all in a 12" x 10.5" SSI CEB form
factor
– CEB form factor provides for a denser population of servers and a lower total
cost of ownership
(TCO) by compatibility with lower-cost system components

"Many recent advancements in server technology including dual core support and
virtualization, built-in security features, and improved manufacturing processes
all have lead to a higher level of integrated features available in a single
solution," stated Danny Hsu, VP of Sales and Marketing at Tyan Computer
Corporation. "In introducing Tyan’s new server platform solutions, the Tempest
i5000PX (S5380), Tempest i5000VF (S5370) and Tempest i5000VS (S5372), customers
will be able to realize higher performance and efficiency gains on their server
applications than ever before, thanks to Intel’s powerful new server technology
line-up."

"The Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® processor 5000 and 5100 series provide Tyan with a
powerful foundation for the Tempest i5000PX, i5000VF and i5000VS platform
solutions" says Boyd Davis, General Manager Intel’s Server Platforms Group
Marketing. "Tyan’s customers can integrate the Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® processor
5000 series processors with the new Tempest platforms to provide server
solutions with leadership performance, advanced virtualization technology and
proven reliability"

The Tempest i5000PX (S5380), Tempest i5000VS (S5372), and Tempest i5000VF
(S5370) will both sample in mid Q2’06, and will reach mass production levels in
late Q2’06.
