Sonnet has announced price drops on its Encore/ST line of G4 processor upgrades. The models, which range from 800 MHz to 1.2 GHz, are now as much as $70 lower than previously. Sonnet has also introduced a new 512 MB USB flash drive and dropped prices on its Piccolo flash drives.

The Sonnet Encore/ST line includes an 800 MHz G4, now priced at $299.95; a 1.0 GHz G4, now priced at $499.95; and a 1.2 GHz G4, now priced at $599.95. All models of the Encore/ST offer 2 MB of double-data rate level-3 cache. They support Power Macintosh models from the original AGP G4s to the Quicksilver 2001 models, including servers and the Cube. (The G4 Cube requires an additional installation kit, sold separately.) See Sonnet's site for a complete list of supported models.

Sonnet has also launched a new model in its Piccolo line of USB flash storage devices. The new model offers 512 MB flash storage and sells for $199.95. The company has also reduced prices on its other Piccolo models, which range from 64 MB to 256 MB and sell for $49.95 to $129.95. All the Piccolo drives support Macintosh and Windows systems.
