Interesting daughter board for carrying the two CPUs, I don't think I have seen that arrangement on anything x86 before! Although, I guess you could consider the cartridge type Pentium II processors to be somewhat similar.

The really cool thing about this particular board is that you can get daughter boards which allow it to support dual Pentium’s/Pentium Pro’s/Pentium II’s, allowing for excellent comparison’s between them!

The Intergraph Intense 3D 3400 + Lynx4 will be the weapon of choice as far as graphics for this system goes: (It's the best PCI-based system from Intergraph that I'll be able to fit into the system)



I already have the Lynx 4 Geometry Card:



It's performance isn't as good as that of the voodoo2 setup that I'll be installing in the single Pentium Pro setup, but it is a Pro card! (But it does run at twice the colour depth!)
