Flashrom only supports GBit Intel devices up to now.

That's a 100 MBit device. AFAIK these devices carry parallel ROM chips.
This is not yet implemented in flashrom, only SPI serial chips are (see
the name of the programmer). If that card uses SPI flash, one needs to
compare datasheets to find out whether these devices are compatible and
then add the device ID to the driver.
