It’s faster than that modem!

Just a fun macro shot to start the week. I won’t even bother having you try to guess, because this is pretty much impossible. You are looking at one chip on an A3495A network card for a K-Class server. This is a 10/100 Base-T adapter, which is quite slow by our modern standards, but was still pretty speedy in its era.

To get a sense of scale, this photo is outlined in the red box in the full view of the card. A penny would completely hide the chip.
