Since many Amiga graphics boards have a FPGA to convert from Zorro to PCI, it's
possible that the Infinitiv tower has such a thing.

IIRC, the DKB Wildfire accelerator also has a local PCI bus. It even has a
DEC21041 Ethernet chip, so they even implemented PCI bus mastering (which is
not needed for graphics cards and hence not implemented in e.g. the Cybervision
