A surprise at Computex was seeing the first public AMD Ryzen-based AM4 motherboard that will implement an Aspeed AST2500 BMC chip for additional management. Tyan was showcasing its Tomcat EX S8015 motherboard at its booth, initially with a version containing an onboard embedded Radeon E8860 graphics chip, but in the future a version with a BMC will be available. For almost all servers, some form of management control is added to allow for the server to be adjusted outside of the central system. This management control boots a separate subsystem that can power off/on the main machine, manage networking, and also track users or onboard sensors for fans/thermals and report back to a central server. They also typically support interfaces to interact with the main...
