XLR8 Announces Production of Its New G3Z ZIF Upgrade Cards; Advanced Upgrade Cards for Apple PowerMac G3 Systems Enable Mac G3 Users to Experience Nearly Twice the Processing Performance.
As with all XLR8's upgrade products, the new G3Z features XLR8's exclusive, MVP(TM) (Multiple Variable Processing) technology. This feature allows users the most flexibility on the market, for optimizing Bus, CPU and cache speeds. Each G3Z also comes with two utility software programs. The XLR8 Processor Info Utility allows interactive feedback of card settings including current CPU temperature. Multiple setting and easy control of the MACh Speed's backside cache is achieved through the MACh Speed G3 Control software. In addition, the G3Z comes with a well illustrated, 68-page, comprehensive manual and will ship in XLR8's new, innovative designed packaging.
MacBench 4.0 scores reflect that users can nearly double their computer speed with the new MACh Speed G3Z upgrade; potentially raising any existing PowerMac G3 computer performance to higher levels than that of any new Mac G3 model. Jack Kolk, XLR8's Director of Sales and Marketing commented, "With the availability of the new high speed, copper-based PowerPC(TM) 750 processors from IBM, we expect to see the Power users upgrade quickly to these powerful upgrade cards."
