I don't think the bottom one is socket 7 because the empty socket has 
WTL 4387 (4187?) which IIRC was for a Wietek(sp?) co-processor.

I think that's either a 486sx or a 386SX socketed board.  The 486sx is 
more likely due to the size but I'm missing something for scale here.

Either way these are probably pretty cool x86 SBCs if you can rig ISA 
power to them along an ISA backplane.

How many did you say you had?

Just imagine a Beowulf cluster of those...


Good for single-task systems if you can rig power to them.
