As an American, I have a deep appreciation in the American technology that sent it's sorry ass to the bottom of the ocean.

I just wish Yamamoto could have been aboard to enjoy the experience. :)

Yes, it was primarily for high bandwidth communications; SCSI, Fiber, etc.

DataAq was secondary, but the cards I have have a 50pS jitter spec, and it holds across four cards in one box; try buying that for less than $20k today.

The best cards I see these days won't hold that jitter spec; only systems.

With a "good" (lol) mobo, I was able to run my VLB board at 50MHz, with certain combinations of cards and memory.

I ran a 486-DX4-100 for a couple of years with that mobo, a SCSI card, an Orchid Fahrenheit video card, with a 2x multiplier and a 50MHz fsb.

I still have this somewhere, lol.

It got replaced with a TX430 mobo, lol.
