Review of Slot 1 Motherboards with Intel 440BX Chipset - Spring 1998

Tyan Tiger 100

The Tiger 100 is Tyan's dual BX board 'version for poor people'. Unlike the Thunder it doesn't have any special onboard components, keeping it a lot smaller than the Thunder 100.

Compatibility testing of this board was as painful as it was with the Supermicro P6DBS, mainly due to the AMI WinBIOS they both use. Please refer to the compatibility evaluation page for further details.

The board does not offer any overclocking features and the performance was worst in the whole field. However, the Tiger 100 was the only dual board in the test which did not have any problems with PC100 SDRAM that's equipped with Toshiba chips.

Tyan is already working to improve the BIOS, the stability of a dual board is more important than the performance, so that this motherboard could still become an interesting alternative for people who want to have a dual Pentium II system, but who don't require onboard SCSI.
