Other World Computing (OWC) today announced it has lowered pricing of its Mercury Extreme G4 processor upgrades by up to $50.00.

Featuring an ultra-quiet custom cooling solution and Tantalum-dipped components (which resist damage from electrostatic discharge), Mercury Extreme G4 upgrades are designed for extreme reliability and longevity compared with similar upgrades using conventional parts. In fact, each Extreme G4 processor upgrade is backed by a three-year warranty and a 30-day 100 percent money-back guarantee.

The new pricing is as follows:

  • OWC Mercury Extreme G4/800MHz - $249.99 (was $269.99),
  • OWC Mercury Extreme G4/1.25-1.26GHz - $449.99 (was $499.99),
  • OWC Mercury Extreme G4/1.3-1.33GHz - $529.99 (was $549.99), and
  • OWC Mercury Extreme G4/1.4-1.467GHZ - $579.99 (was $599.99).

“Since its introduction earlier this year, our Extreme G4 line has quickly built a name for itself as a high-performance, cost-effective option to allow Apple PowerMac G4 owners to get the most from their machines,” said Larry O’Connor, president of OWC. “We were recently recognized by Macworld magazine with a ‘Four Mice’ rating. For nearly 15 years, we’ve been providing our customers with the best solutions at the best prices. Today’s new Extreme prices show our continued commitment to delivering our customers the best value possible.”

The Mercury Extreme G4 processor upgrades feature 256 Kilobytes of 1:1 L2 cache on-chip and 2 Megabytes of high-speed SPD or DDR L3 Cache operating at up to 267 Megahertz (MHz). They are compatible with Apple PowerMac G4 AGP Graphics (Sawtooth), Gigabit Ethernet, Digital Audio and Quicksilver models and support Mac OS 9.2.1 and higher, as well as OS X and higher, including all 10.2.x versions.
