        What was the bus actually clocked at? I was always under the
impression that with non-bus mastering EISA cards that the additional
speed increase over ISA was just due to the added bus width. Or is
it only clocked at the clock of the ISA bus when an ISA card is
inserted into an EISA slot?

        I think I still have a few EISA SCSI boards. Now I'm curious
as to their specs.
