I'm certainly no expert on mainframes, but I do recognise a Fujitsu logo
when I see one. So, my money is on this being a board out of a Fujitsu
mainframe computer. Chips like that, with cooling towers etc.... Maybe
I remember many years ago visiting Fujitsu's main development location.
The whole of the basement was constructed as a museum of all Fujitsu
major products over the years, including tons of computer stuff. I
remember marvelling at PCBs with 20+ signal layers and integral fluid
cooling etc, in the days when most PCBs were only double sided or 4
layers at best. Fascinating stuff!
I suspect the winner of the auction has got himself something that would
have cost major $$$ when new.
