We like general-purpose server boards here as they can do many different things. The TYAN S7053GM2NR has the basic connectivity and I/O to be able to fill many different roles. Boards like this can make very good storage servers with the mini SAS connections or provide the needed storage for a good GPGPU machine.
We had no problems running the NVIDIA Quadro K5000 on this board. The motherboard can be the base of a very high-powered workstation and has the needed RAM slots to load it with 512GBs total. This would make a very nice Solidworks, AutoCAD, or Adobe workstation.
We also like the CPU layout of this board. With CPUs on one side of the motherboard, it gives plenty of space to install GPUs, which can be very long and need that space. It also works well when installing inside 4U workstation cases. This way, you do not need that big fan header bar with high-powered fans screaming at you. Yes, you do need fans there, but with large heat sinks like the Noctua's we used, you can use slower speed fans to help fight all that noise.
We had this board up and running in no time in the lab; it was very simple to do. No extra driver hunting was required. The K5000 was a snap to fire up. Just download the needed drivers from NVIDIA, install, and away it goes.
With newer CPUs, you can get even more horsepower out of this board. Install extra hard drives and it can have a huge amount of storage.
With a max capacity of 512GB RAM, you can use VMs or run huge files in a workstation setup.
The warranty for this motherboard is three years (36 months) for workmanship and materials. Please see TYAN website for more details.
