I have a working 4/110 (though I'll have to check which FPU it has).
When they first came out,
we had one at the office of the company I was working at, w/o the FPU.
And the performance was
very doggy (compared to the 3/110's it was almost glacial). The
company went out and just purchased
the FPU separately (and I don't believe from Sun...) and just dropped
it in. There wasn't any additional chips needed, at least on the
motherboard we had.... it was ready to go. And it definitely made a
difference, thought I still thought the 3/110 had better Sunview
