Intel's Xeon Shows Its Stuff in 7 Motherboards

Tyan Thunder S2676 (i7525), Continued

The S2676 has one 1394a port.

Tyan's back panel in detail.

Unfortunately, there is no overheat protection. The system did not even shut down after receiving the CPUs THERMTRIP signal. This, at the latest, should force any motherboard to shut down. In a real-world situation, the CPUs could have easily been damaged.

We found all the cables that we expected to find.

Tyan is not lucky in this review, since the memory bandwidth did not exceed 1.2 GB/s. In addition to that, we had trouble using our Infineon DIMMs. These could not be solved within this article's time frame.
