The 715/33 does NOT have either LASI or DINO.  It uses an older 
I/O chip known as ASP.  ASP connects the processor bus to several 
external chips, including the NCR 53c710, Intel LAN and WD 16C552 (?
I'm doing this from memory) 2-serial/parallel chip.  It uses the PA7100
CPU which does not have GSC.

"Gecko" is the codename for the 712. The 715/33 has nothing to do
with Gecko.  Later 715s (/64, /80, and /100) ARE very similar to 
Gecko, and use the PA7100LC/LASI chipset (but not DINO).
