Integrix made third-party Sun-compatible hardware, including servers and 
peripheral cards.  That board is almost certainly a TGX+ clone, which has 
more memory (usually 4MB) for higher resolution and double-buffering. 
They made the boards but got most of the silicon on them from Sun.

Sun TGX+ cards are also out there, but they're less common than the 1MB 
TGX ones.  Look for 501-2253 or 501-2955.  GX+ cards also have 4MB but 
they're slower and support fewer resolutions, look for 501-1717, 501-2018 
or 501-2039.

Look for "TGX+", "Turbo GX+", or some similar permutation.
