Just in the process of replying!

Since it's useful to everyone I'll post it here:

The K8W will support dual core Opterons. The BIOS will need to be flashed.

The board Offers:
AGP graphics card support only. (No onboard either)
1 GigE Network
4 PCI-X slots (2 x 133 mhz, 2 x 100 mhz)
Silicon Image SIL3114 4 x SATA supporting Raid 0,1,0+1
1 Firewire
and useless on a server 5.1 Surround Sound, SPDIF output!

Tyan's website is allways down/slow/useless.
