 TyanPSC Typhoon T 600 Series

TyanPSC, the OEM business unit of Tyan Computer Corporation, today announced
the launch and availability of the next generation in personal supercomputing:
the Typhoon 600 series using Intel Xeon 5300 “Clovertown” processors. Leveraging
Tyan’s experience with 2.5 million users, TyanPSC has designed a personal
supercomputing platform that combines the best computational horsepower*, the
benefits of a personal or workgroup resource, and the streamlined user
experience that engineers and scientists expect from a PC. TyanPSC’s Typhoon
personal supercomputer is an easy-to-deploy, easy-to-use, turnkey system that
delivers a stunning 256 gigaflops in your office or any other environment, while
only requiring power from a standard wall outlet.

TyanPSC is demonstrating several Typhoon 600 series systems this week at
Supercomputing 2006 conference in Tampa in cooperation with its key partners in
high performance computing (HPC). The demonstrations showcases the novel design
and systems integration TyanPSC achieves in cooperation with several leading HPC
technology partners: Intel Corporation, Microsoft Corp., Mellanox Technologies
Ltd., and Wolfram Research Inc. The hardware combination of Tyan’s cluster
system design technologies, Intel’s processor technologies and Mellanox’s
InfiniBand capabilities showcases the performance and efficiency the Typhoon 600
systems achieves when running Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 and
ISV applications, such as LSTC’s LS-DYNA and Wolfram’s gridMathematica.

“We’re leaving the performance compromise of personal supercomputing behind us
by delivering a system into office environments that pumps out one quarter of a
Teraflop without the mess and difficulty of the back room data center model,”
said Dr. Symon Chang, CEO of Tyan Computer Corporation. “Our Typhoon 600 series
personal supercomputers represent a tremendous leap for our customers who
require performance-on-demand to reach their efficiency goals and get results.
With the Typhoon 600 series, you just open the box, roll it into your office and
plug it in. That’s all it takes to have 256 GFLOPs at your fingertips. That’s
what we provide our customers – hands on supercomputing!”

Platform Partnerships

"High-performance clusters, which were once confined to technology islands run
by specialists, is becoming as readily available to engineers and scientists as
their technical workstations,” said Shawn Hansen, director of HPC marketing,
Windows Server Division at Microsoft Corp. “Microsoft is working with TyanPSC
and the industry to help make HPC technology more mainstream by delivering
personal supercomputing that seamlessly integrates into the customer’s Windows
experience."

The TyanPSC Typhoon 600 series is an innovative platform solution designed to
solve the computational challenges individual scientists and workgroups face in
environments that traditionally do not have access to local supercomputing when
they need it. The Typhoon 600 series PSC is purpose-built to be deployed and
used like a PC, removing the complexity and management that is usually expected
from a system that provide 256 Gflops.

“Companies, including Tyan, are providing technology designs that take advantage
of the new Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® processors,” said Jim Pappas, director of
initiative marketing for Intel Corporation. “These new quad-core processors
provide breakthrough performance and efficiency for offices and other
constrained environments.”TyanPSC has partnered with Mellanox to offer
InfiniBand interconnect options to provide performance scalability and
robustness for the Typhoon 600 series.

“Mellanox InfiniBand increases the overall compute cluster efficiency and allows
performance-driven applications to optimally utilize the CPU resources,” said
Gilad Shainer, senior technical marketing manager at Mellanox Technologies.
“Taking advantage of InfiniBand’s capabilities, the Tyan Typhoon 600 series
delivers a high-end, personal supercomputing solution for engineers, scientists
and financial analysts.”

ISV Partnerships

ISV partnerships, such as ANSYS/Fluent and Wolfram Research augment Typhoon’s
robust turnkey capabilities.

“Tyan’s focus on a turnkey personal cluster helps bring high-performance
computing within the reach of more customers doing computer aided engineering,”
said Chris Reid, vice president, marketing at ANSYS, Inc. “Both ANSYS® 11 and
FLUENT® 6.3 support the Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 solution,
which is a good fit for our customers who are already working in a Windows
environment. We are pleased to see Tyan providing an easily deployed cluster,
which will help our customers expand their use of our simulation software.”

"TyanPSC is delivering personal supercomputers that help our users take full
advantage of the power of our HPC offerings – gridMathematica and Mathematica
Personal Grid Edition. With the innovative Typhoon 600 series product line,
TyanPSC provides a great target for turnkey implementations of Mathematica based
solutions. Wolfram Research is pleased to be a partner of the TyanPSC division
of Tyan Computer. We anticipate offering even more ground-breaking personal
supercomputing technologies in the future."
