No, it's a RAID controller based on the PDC20276 chipset:

    tim-AxhZhUCsNFI at public.gmane.org% cat /proc/ide/pdcnew

                                MBFastTrak 133 Lite Chipset.
    tim-AxhZhUCsNFI at public.gmane.org%

I just use it as an additional ide controller because I dislike hardware RAID
in general and I've not heard great things about Promise.
