“Mercury Extreme G4 upgrades from Other World Computing are a great way to make an existing machine up to four times faster while retaining compatibility with all your existing software and hardware,” says Larry O’Connor, CEO of OWC.

The Mercury Extreme G4 upgrades improve performance of the OS and applications currently being used while also allowing users to take advantage of newer software with faster processor requirements as well.

“Important applications like Adobe Photoshop and Microsoft Office aren’t expected to be released with Native Intel Mac support until 2007, never mind that you can’t even use OS 9 ‘Classic’ applications at all on Intel equipped Macs,” explains Jen Soule, OWC Sales Manager. “Upgrading an existing Mac with an OWC Mercury Extreme processor provides an immediate performance improvement for all the applications you use and rely on right now, today.”

Each Mercury Extreme G4 features 256KB of 1:1 L2 Cache and 2MB of high-speed L3 Cache. All units are covered by OWC’s three-year limited warranty and offer a 30-day, 100% money-back guarantee, allowing customers to try without risk. It has been OWC’s experience that once a user experiences the benefit of a Mercury Extreme upgrade, there is no going back.

Mercury Extreme G4 processor upgrades are designed for Plug-and-Play ease of use, requiring no software for operation. All models are compatible with Apple PowerMac G4 AGP Graphics (Sawtooth), Gigabit Ethernet, Digital Audio and Quicksilver models, and with Mac OS 9.2.1 or higher and all versions of OS X 10.0.4 and later including 10.4.x Tiger.
