Tyan Tiger MP (2460) AMD-760 MP Motherboard Review
This content was originally featured on Amdmb.com and has been converted to PC Perspective’s website. Some color changes and flaws may appear.Even before the launch of the Tyan Thunder K7 back in June, there were several speculations and rumors of lower-cost dual-processor Athlon motherboards that would soon be up to compete with the Thunder K7 motherboard. Up to this date, none of those have transpired into anything.
With this in mind, Tyan has primed the launch of the Tiger MP to head in the direction of the mass multi-processor market. The major drawback of Tyan’s previous attempt at the dual-Athlon market was the steep price. At launch, the board was hard to find for less than $500. It is now settled in at around $400-420 or so, but that is still much to high for most home users to consider for their personal machine.
The Tiger MP, couple a lower price tag with a lower feature set in hope of mass market success. Let’s start out the review with the standard motherboard specifications:
