IRVINE, Calif. -- Iwill Corp. is sampling what the company calls the world's fastest dual-processor motherboard for workstations based on Intel Corp.'s Xeon microprocessor line.
The DX400-SN features support for symmetric multi-processing, enabling the board to handle two Xeon processors running from 1.4- to 1.7-GHz. The board is designed for workstations and entry-level servers, said Sherman Tang, business development manager for Iwill in Irvine.
Based on Intel's 860 chip set, the board also supports a 400-MHz front-side bus and Rambus Inc.'s Quad Channel RDRAM memory. The DX400-SN integrates two RDRAM-based memory repeater hubs (MRH-R), enabling the system to handle a throughput of 3.2-gigabits-per-second.
It also supports a 64-bit PCI bus, AGP 4X, AC-97, dual-channel Ultra 160 SCSI, and local-area networking. The board sells for $959.
