OWC Ships Low-End G4 Upgrade

800 MHz model available for $270 By Dave Nagel
Other World Computing has released a new model in its line of Mercury Extreme G4 processor upgrades. The new model fills out the low end of OWC's offerings, with a clock speed of 800 MHz. It's available now.

The Mercury Extreme 800 MHz G4 features 256 KB onchip L2 cache and 2 MB L3 cache. The upgrade is plug and play, offering full support for all AGP-equipped G4 models without additional software. The upgrade replaces Apple's daughtercard, so no PCI or AGP slots are taken up by the upgrade. And it includes a heat sink and fan preinstalled.

The Mercury Extreme 800 MHz G4 is available now for $269.99. Other G4 upgrades are available from OWC up to 1.467 GHz (for $589.99). For more information, visit
