I'm guessing the bridge chip is that ID Data one ?
Is there something particularly great about it ? never heard of ID Data myself.
it's I/O Data, a japanese company, I'd assume it's some proprietary silicon, so I don't think it would be easily attainable, they made a variant of this card for C-Bus as well.

Are there any tests out there? I wouldn't automatically assume it's faster than the Speedstar64.
I doubt it, it's a very obscure card, almost all the ones you can find out there are the C-Bus variant for PC-98 (I got an older one of these too), and yeah, I don't know if it's actually faster in real world scenarios but it certainly is a faster chip ^^ unfortunately I don't have a GD5434 myself.
here's the official site for the card, "DragonStar 64V"
