I'll call it Gary.

All I am seeing is the closest match you found.

Usually cards have serial numbers, part numbers, FCC IDs, etc that can be looked up.

What is it's purpose, and why do you need to know?

PCI VGA?

You are on the right track.

My guess would be the main IBM chip there is some standard 2D graphics chip, wasn't able to find it, but the name is pretty clear (and they did invent the standard after all). 37RBG52FCF17-A

So a 3D accelerator plug in card is likely. Doesn't look like any of their other products. Could be a dev-kit or intended to go in something like an arcade machine.

Non-consumer hardware rarely gets much attention, Very early days of the internet. Only decent resource would be old trade magazines.
