not sure what chipset this uses; anyone here have one of these?
ok -- given that this post : http://macos9lives.com/smforum/index.php/topic,5024.msg36354.html#msg36354
says that it uses the same firmware as the other tempo/ultra100 and tempo/ultra133 then i guess this also uses the Promise PDC2026X chipset

this card uses a Promise chipset.




but im pretty sure this card wouldnt work in OS9 anyways because all those components are behind a PLX bridge chip.
G4/MDD 1.42 (9), G4/GB 500DP (X), Beige G3 400 (upgraded) (9), PBG4Ti 1Ghz (X), PBG3WS 300 (9)

got my mind on my scsi and my scsi on my mind

refinery it is made to work ijn mac os 9 check the data sheet
its more about the time period it was produced.. if it was made in early 2000s then it was made to be compatible with os9
