66 MHz PCI is not a requirement. It will work in a 33MHz slot. The
Blade 100 is not supported according to the manual (or the U60), yet
some have been able to use it in the 100 and u60:

Solaris 8 performance was poor. I run an XVR-100 in a Blade 150 with
sol 10 3/05 and it's ok. Even with JDS3. Of course the blade 150 is
slow anyway... Running XFCE and that is much more acceptable.

There is an earlier version with 3 ports: hd15, dvi and svideo,
however the svideo is not supported under solaris.
