Looks like 400, but to be sure, you might have to crack the case and find out what the actual chip is. A pic of the controller chip is in the link and it should be on the motherboard near the firewire ports/headers. Get the number from your controller, and reference at the link I listed. By chance, is the actual controller listed in any of your hardware lists? Maybe Speccy might list the controller. You might try to download that and see if it lists the controller if you aren't comfortable opening the case.
