Tyan Tempest EX S7100-EX


Tyan Tempest EX S7100-EX Main Picture

The Tyan Tempest EX S7100-EX is a server-oriented motherboard for the Xeon Scalable family of processors. There are sockets for two CPUs alongside 12 DDR4 RAM modules. For expansion, this board features seven PCI-Express slots. All are the full x16 size - although depending on which slots are populated, some may only run at x8 data speed.

In terms of external connectivity, the Tempest EX S7100-EX is fairly spartan: just four USB 3.0, dual gigabit Ethernet ports, and VGA output when a local terminal is needed. A bracket is also included for basic audio input and output, if desired. Internally there are two SATA 6Gbps ports, two M.2 slots, and three mini-SAS HD connectors - which can provide 12 more SATA ports via breakout cables, if you aren't using SAS drives. That wide range of drive connectivity, combined with the flexibility of seven PCI-E slots, makes this board a great platform for any number of server configurations.

Note: Audio is via an optional expansion bracket.
