This VAX is fast, it's more than 3 times faster than the VAXstation 3100/M30.
The RAM is fitted as SIMM sticks. There is 6 sockets and this VAX has SIMMs in 4 of them. The SIMMs are 80 pin ECC ram (DEC modelno. MS44-xx), and hard to come by :(
The LCG framebuffer has this funny 3W3 (not 13W3, 3W3!) connector and uses sync-on-green.
NetBSD has support for the NCR53C94 SCSI chip in this VAX and it runs very well (fast :))
This machine previously had a bunch of RZ5x disks, they've been replaced by a single internal 9.1gb IBM disk. This was a huge improvement since it's a lot faster and makes a lot less noise :)
I'm now running my 3 main VAXstations with the VT520 since it can handle all 3 at the same time.
