I have some AT-2560FX cards. They are Rev C. Units from
a little over a year ago. They have Intel chips, marked
S82557/L7104630/SL24Z/(c) 1989 1995. I use them because
I needed to attach some PCs to fiber using SC connectors,
and these were the only thing that fit the bill. This isn't
a performance or Linux application, so I can't speak to their
capabilities in these regards.  I don't know if the
AT-2500TX uses the same or similar chip.
