They're just starting to get the S2722 into the pipeline with distributors.
But your correct no one responded so don't know anyone who's see the S2722
or tried it yet.

My concern is the management for this motherboard and if you need this
Zircon option.  I'm wondering if Tyan is using Zircon for management and not
putting them into the BIOS.

Anyone know?
