"Over the years at Phoronix there have been reviews on many Tyan motherboards for desktops, servers, and workstations. The build quality of these motherboards have always been very good; after all, Tyan has been around for two decades and their workstation/server products must be very dependable if they wish to maintain their premiere position within the industry. The Linux compatibility with the motherboards has also been generally quite good due to its dominant use on their operating systems. As our first Tyan review for 2010 we are looking at the S2915 n6650W and S2927 n3600B motherboards. Both motherboards are designed for AMD's Opteron 2000 series processors and have a similar feature set, but there are a few key differences between these two high-end workstation motherboards.

"Both motherboards arrived in the standard Tyan motherboard boxes that we have been used to seeing their products housed in for years. Along with each motherboard was the usual assortment of Serial ATA data cables, an IDE ribbon cable, FDD ribbon cable, USB 2.0 expansion slot connectors, 4-pin molex to Serial ATA power adapters, the user's manual, and other accessories."
