New Processor Upgrade Card Available for Apples Cube G4Dual G4/1.5GHz provides serious performance for an exceptional price (August 18, 2005)
PowerLogix has immediately available a 1.5 Gigahertz (GHz) dual processor PowerForce G4 7447A processor upgrade card for Apple Computers Cube.
The card is immediately available from Other World Computing, master distributor for PowerLogix, for $479.
?While there was a relatively small number of PowerMac G4 Cubes made, the demand for Cube enhancements remains strong, said Larry OConnor, president of OWC. ?Were glad to meet that demand with these great upgrades, which keep this four-plus-year-old machine running faster than even the G4 Mac models available today.
The cards utilize the latest FreeScale PowerPC 7447A and include 512K of on-board L2 cache. As with all PowerForce G4 7447A cards, this new model features an on-board thermal sensor and real-time thermal monitoring, and supports Dynamic Frequency Switching (DFS).
All PowerLogix Cube processor upgrades also feature PowerLogixs exclusive Voltage Regulator Module bypass technology that reduces the power draw of the Cube VRM, extending its life and reducing heat.
CPU Director, Powerlogixs proprietary software utility, ships with all 7447A card upgrades. This software constantly monitors the processor for proper and safe operation, and also allows the user to view operational temperature.
The card is compatible with Mac OS 9.x and Mac OS X 10.3.5 and higher (Mac OS X 10.3.9 or higher is required for thermal monitoring and DFS features).
OWC also has available a 7447A 1.8GHz card for $349 and duals in speeds of 1.2GHz to 1.7GHz starting at $429.
