An Ultra 2 does, yes, but I wasn't sure if the Netra case allows for addition of a UPA framebuffer, which is why I phrased it "IF you are "stuck" with SBUS video" (emphasis added)...

With a Creator (anything), they are much more reasonable desktops...

I'm about to build up my bigger systems with XVR-700 (part of a $100 shipped U60 system) and an XVR-500 just bought on eBay for $55 yesterday - should make for nice desktops...
