Aug 9, 2005 | Austin, TX


PowerLogix and Other World Computing have immediately available a new 900 Megahertz (MHz) PowerForce 750FX G3 upgrade for PCI- based Macs including PowerMac 7300, 7500, 7600, 8500, 8600, 9500 and 9600 models from Apple Computer, as well as select Power Computing and Umax clones.

The 900MHz PowerForce 750FX G3 includes 512K of L2 cache also running at 900MHz and is immediately available for $139. With a clock speed up to nine times faster than original stock 601 or 604 Apple processors, additional performance and software compatibility are possible because of the modern IBM G3 750FX processor gains this upgrade is based upon.

The PowerForce 1 Gigahertz (GHz) PowerForce 750GX G3 featuring 1MB of L2 Cache also is available for $209.99.

The new PowerForce 750 G3 is the latest in the PowerForce G3 line, previously honored as “Editor’s Choice” by MacWorld Magazine.

“Computers people thought were aging beyond the ability to use Apple’s latest advances are still viable,” said Larry O’Connor, president of Other World Computing, master distributor for PowerLogix. “Even without using software like XPostFacto to use Apple’s Tiger OS, this upgrade makes applications running under OS 8.6 to OS 9.2.2 fly like never before. If it’s not broke, don’t need to fix it or replace it. But you can buy one of these upgrades to get a whole lot more from it.”

The PowerForce 750 G3 upgrades also include a built-in fan sink to aid CPU cooling, fail-safe protection circuitry, CPU Director software and compatibility with add-on PCI cards.
