3com 3c996-t vs 3c996-bt


Hey Guys

Anybody know the difference between these two cards? I know the bt is the newer version and that they are both gigabit/jumbo frame capable but I cannot see any differences. I also cannot find a lot on the -t card.

Thanks
Lazlow

The reason I ask is that I had won it on ebay for $19(including shipping) before I realized it was the -t and not the -bt.

Finally found it:
Here are the differences of these two cards:
3C996B-T 3C996-T

1. 2.5 inch PCI 3.5 - inch PCI ( will not fit 1U )
2. Reduced Power High-power
