Can the Promise Ultra 100 tx2 be used in PA-2013 (latter version)
using Windows 98SE? Emphasis on the tx2. I've been told that the Ultra
100 can be used in PA-2013 (thank you Robert). Currently using Promise
Ultra ATA/66 with 2 Western Digital Ultra ATA/66, 7200 HD's. I believe
that the tx2 mentioned above would be backward compatible.
Thanks, Gibby

I would go to the Promise website and compare the specs (and manuals) for
the two cards to see if there is any significant difference in compatibility
and features.

Robert:
The Ultra 100 TX2 controller card supports the latest 66MHz PCI
motherboards. If one is NOT ready for 66MHz yet, the Ultra 100 XT2 is
completely backward-compatible with 33 MHz PCI systems or slower Ultra
ATA/66/33 drives. Data transfer rate: Up to 100/MB/sec burst data
transfers (with Ultra ATA/100 drives); provides 200 MB/sec bandwidth
when used in a 66MHz PCI slot (133 MB/s when used in a 33 MHz PCI
slot). Regarding the earlier Ultra 100 (non xt2), it says that it
supports data transfer rates up to 100 MB/se. ans up to 133 MB/sec.
burst transfer rates (though PCI bus). Otherwise there seems to be no
other differences when looking at the features.
What do you think? Again, I'm using a later model FIC PA-2013 MB,
K6-III/450 CPU, Crucial 133 memory (plenty of it), 2 Western Digital
20 gig. 7600 rpm ATA/66 HD's, Windows 98SE. Looking at eventually
upgrading to WD 7600 rpm ATA/100 (40 to 80 gig range most likely). I
value your opinion.
Thanks, Gibby
