We are in the process of considering machines for a large Linux cluster,
and have received very nice performance results from the Athlon
XP1800+. Since we're somewhat limited by space, we'd like to consider
dual-processor machines, but there seems to be only one mainboard
available, the Tyan Tiger, which has a bunch of niceties like onboard
SCSI that we simply don't want. Does anyone know of other dual processor
Athlon boards (which accept XP1800+ chips, so, Athlon MP) on the
market? If there aren't any, does anyone have news about the development
of lower-end boards?
Also, due to our space constraints, and to avoid incurring the cost of a
rack-mounted solution, we're also interested in finding micro-ATX boards
for these systems.
So, ideally we'd like a micro-ATX dual Athlon board. Any information
would be greatly appreciated!
