The Ambra T466I/VL was called one of the fastest 486 PCs available in early 1994. This model, the minitower version of the D466I/VL, contained a number of innovative features. The expansion slots were located on a “riser card,” which had ISA slots and one VESA slot from the factory, but could be upgraded to a riser card with PCI slots. The system was “Pentium-ready” as well, and supported the Pentium OverDrive processors.
