2GB Ethernet Comparison site Backwards PC site links to some options.
I'm not so sure that I'm happy with IP-06046, in fact I'd say it seems I'm not. Reasons: RAM support not as expected (runs at DDR 266 max, and BIOS options for speed are either that or Auto), no face plate delivered with motherboard (and not having this issue addressed twice when I mentioned it to them, even though I didn't get response to other less important topics in E-mail), ISA may not be so compatible (neither GUS nor Awe64 working as expected), no CD came bundled with motherboard (even though the page does mention Windows 95, 98, and NT in the "Software Drivers" section of "Additional Support" section of their IP-06046 page. See mb700.htm for an alternative I found. I should put GUS in 486 system to verify the card works. It seems a few more companies may have joined the bandwagon: Phoenix AT looks good and Technoland had some close options, which I didn't notice before. Good: http://www.americanpredator.com/products/industrial_controllers/phoenix_at.html http://resource.intel.com/programs/searchresults.asp?pageid=searchbycat&cacode=12&subcacode=45 However, from the picture, I don't think I see all the ports I would expect: KB/USB/Ethernet/COM ports/etc. Sheet seems to suggest it's okay. Problems: Price? And one PCI slot looks shared, so it will have 2, not 3 PCI slots if all ISA used, which is less than IP-06046. Called Phoenix AT, they also have Phoenix ATX-? (?=G/E/P). So is this AT not ATX sized? http://www.bwi.com/scripts/site/site_product.php3/id/12588/ indicates it is $1420.00, "Baby AT (8.6x13.0") and it has some incorrect stats (4 ISA slots, 4 PCI slots) The Phoenix AT design was based on the Intel 875P ("was"??? Meaning it was designed, or the mobo is a "was" discontinued?) Some close: http://www.technoland.com/mb.htm 8000/8200 http://www.technoland.com/tl_mb8200.htm

BackwardsPC site said there are problems with this, so he bought I-Base MB-820 instead.
2 COM ports, compared to I-Base MB's 4. Baber says FSB 533/400, $225 Slower RAM? (DDR 333/266)... or maybe 3GB w/ 184-pin PC2700/PC2100 non-ECC, unbuffered DDR SDRAM memory?
