For what it's worth I have switched over to sbc systems exclusively for my retro computing, and I have yet to see a 486 sbc with L2 cache, out of about a dozen I have gathered over the years.
Ah, well, no need to grieve at not having any L2 cache on my board then at least 😀
Can see why you did that switch btw, really started liking the SBC concept while working with this rig. Incredibly convenient, small desktop footprint.
Did you figure out whether your SIMMs are EDO?
If you go by wikipedia part of the motivation of EDO was to close the gap between cacheless and having L2 cache... would be interesting to see some benchmarks vs. other cached 486DX-33s if yours is EDO and you can tune the BIOS to take advantage of it.
