Housed in a 3U package, the cards can be ordered with: integrated AGP video; 64 to 256 MB of 100-MHz SDRAM; a floppy-disk drive; ultra DMA33 hard drive; keyboard, mouse and USB ports; and serial and parallel ports.The controllers are claimed to deliver more than twice the overall computing performance of the company's PXI-8156B Series controllers. Additional features include MMX technology, a 16K/16K non-blocking L2 cache, and a 512-KB L2 cache in the 450-MHz version and a 256-KB advanced transfer cache in the 700-MHz version.
