Fast Ethernet on Q-bus?

» close window

The Question is:

Is there a QBUS Ethernet card which supports 100Mb fast Ethernet?
If so can it coexist with older 10 Mb card in VAX 4000 of different models?
Kjell Carlsson

The Answer is :

  Compaq does not offer such a 100 megabit per second Fast Ethernet Q-bus
  controller, though a third-party might.  Given that the Q-bus could not
  drive the Ethernet at anywhere near this speed, why bother?  (The fastest
  (measured) performance (that the OpenVMS Wizard is aware of) among some
  of the various Q-bus peripherals found in various members of the Q-bus
  MicroVAX series is circa thirteen (13) megabits per second.
