PowerLogix today announced immediate availability of the 2.0 gigahertz (GHz) Single Processor PowerForce G4 7447A processor upgrade card.

The 2.0 GHz PowerForce G4 7447A utilizes the latest, fastest available FreeScale PowerPC 7447A and includes 512K of on-board L2 cache. It is immediately available for $399 from Other World Computing.

“Motorola/FreeScale’s new 7447/7447A G4 processor has allowed us to provide high performance upgrades at an extremely competitive price,” said Larry O’Connor, president of OWC, master distributor for PowerLogix. “In addition to performance, PowerLogix 7447A CPU upgrades are the lowest power-consuming and coolest running upgrades in the industry. No competitor comes close.”

The card features an on-board thermal sensor and real-time thermal monitoring. Dynamic Frequency Switching (DFS) is also supported for significantly reduced power demand. These features enable the PowerForce G4 7447A to operate at high speed and highest power efficiency, for the coolest possible operation.
