Vesa Local Bus video card Description:VESA Local Bus was developed by several mainboard manufacturers with a major focus on low implementation costs. As a result extensions like bridges or buffers weren't used. With version 1.0 of VLB specifications weren't very tight and manufacturers had much freedom for interpretation. VLB is directly connected to the CPU bus which ran at a maximum of 40MHz at time of specification.
