Advanced Micro Devices demonstrated a new mainboard from TYAN that is made for 4P AMD Opteron systems during its AMD Reseller Seminar in Korea yesterday. The picture of the TYAN Thunder K8-S4880 mainboard taken by journalists from DarkCrow web-site indicates that the product is not only “in development”, but has been already designed and may be just a few steps away from mass-production.

The first 4-way mainboard for AMD Opteron processors from TYAN based on AMD 8131 and 8111 I/O tunnels is able to handle up to 20GB of PC2700 and provides sufficient set of capabilities for 4P server systems. The feature-list of the Thunder K8-S4880 includes 2  PCI-X (64-bit/66MHz) slots, 2 PCI-X (64-bit/133MHz) slots, 1 PCI (32-bit/33MHz), on-board ATI Rage XL 8 MB graphics adapter, 2-channel Parallel ATA-33/66/100/133, 4 Serial ATA-150 ports with RAID support, 2-channel Ultra320 SCSI controller, dual Gigabit Ethernet controller as well as other necessary ports in addition to server management capabilities. The mainboard is built according to Extended ATX standards.

Currently there are less than three platforms for 4-way AMD Opteron processors. In case TYAN launches its new Thunder K8-S4880 mainboard soon enough, it will be positive for AMD, who will have more chances to sell its AMD Opteron processors 800 series designed to work in 4-/8-way systems.
