Ralf,
Does this board have a 21066 on it for the ~$500 price?
If yes, then I don't understand DEC's pricing ($528 for the chip or
~$500 for a board _with_ chip??).

If no, then system cost goes up much faster:
    ~$500 + $528 + VRAM + RAMDAC + DRAM + ...
instead of:
    ~$500 +        VRAM + RAMDAC + DRAM + ...
