I see someone selling the following new old stock for $50: CIRRUS LOGIC VLB VESA LOCAL BUS CL-GD5426-80QC-B BOCA EUD 5U9 BRI4870 4870 VGA
Looks like chip is CL-GD5426. The manufacturer is BOCA and product number is BRI4870. It has 1MB onboard ram and two empty sockets for additional 1MB.
Is this a good VLB card? By good I mean that it doesn't have any major incompatibility problems, performs roughly on par with what you expect from VLB card. It doesn't have to be top performer.
How easy is it to find additional memory modules to fill the empty sockets? If not that easy, maybe it would be better to look for a card that already has 2MB?
