A Board For The Opteron: Tyan K8W
The Thunder K8W (S2885ANRF) from Tyan is intended for dual-Opteron systems and makes it possible to assign each processor its own RAM.
AMD sent us the Opteron Platform with a K8W (S2885ANRF) by Tyan. It was unfortunately not possible to launch the Solidworks-2003 benchmark with this circuit board, as the application could not address the parallel port dongle. Tyan sent us a replacement board, which did not bring any improvement, however.
Solidworks 2003 misses the dongle and refuses to cooperate.
