I recently had an MA311 working just fine, and on an SMP system (a
previous response indicated SMP problems but said, correctly, that
they were not card-based).

Also, a previous post referenced the possibility that a later MA311
might have a different chipset but not a redesignated model number.
Of course, that can always happen.  I didn't see any versioning on
mine, but the circuit traces were identical to the Zcomax XI-626, and
the nomenclature "XI-626" was even silkscreened onto the PC card.

So, point is, if you get the MA 311 and you see this on the card,
chances are you'll be fine.

As to the existence of an MA311+, could be.  I have no clue.
