If the sticker on one of the chips is correct, the manufacturer is Soyo.

Does it work?
I personally have seen ~10 Soyo PCI/VLB mobos, none of them was working properly or at all.

Soyo even back in the 90s didn't appear to acknowledge this board's existence. Every VIP board they have a manual for used the SiS 496/497 chipset and a different layout.

They had another VIP board, the SY-030A/B/C. The manual is also available online.
You are right about the 030E. No original scan of the manual obtainable.

Big bump but for good reason : there is a manual available online for this board actually 😀
It's just improperly named : https://arvutimuuseum.ee/th99/m/S-T/32376.htm
