The Tyan S5530 motherboard is one of the higher-end motherboards that we see released. For example, the Tyan S5530 has dual 10GbE SFP+ ports supporting the wider adoption of 10GbE in datacenters. Along with the dual 10GbE ports, the Tyan S5530 supports 4x DDR3 ECC UDIMMs, a PCIe 2.0 x4 slot, and 2x GbE ports. For storage the motherboard supports 2x SATA III 6.0gbps ports and 4x SATA II 3.0gbps ports.
The above example has both the integrated SAS controller and dual 10GbE ports. It is certainly one of the most featured Haswell server motherboards we have seen thus far.
