This extremely small Banshee was manufactured by Joytech for former Austrian OEM Gericom. The BIOS version is worth mentioning - it ends with -FT, which I haven't seen elsewhere yet. Sadly, I don't know what the common -ET stands for, that can normally be found in BIOS versions of Banshees with SG-RAM chips. If someone knows it, please let me know with a comment below 🙂
