EVERGREEN 1 GHZ UPGRADE BUNDLES DELIVER POWER & MEMORY.
Evergreen Technologies, Inc., recently announced new Hardware Upgrade Bundles for Windows XP which boost performance of early Pentium III, Pentium II and Celeron systems, in preparation for the increased demands of the new Microsoft Windows XP operating system.
In these discounted bundles, Evergreen's new Performa III 1GHz, Performa 1GHz, and Spectra III 1GHz are paired with 128Mb of SDRAM memory to provide users comprehensive system performance equal to that available in brand new PCs shipping with Windows XP.
Separately, Evergreen's Performa III 1GHz will be made available bundled with 256Mb of SDRAM as a special offer for users of Windows XP through Microsoft's website during the official launch period. These new Hardware Upgrade Bundles for Windows XP deliver enhanced 3D performance for graphics, video and sound to enable users to fully experience the features of their new operating system.
"Windows XP allows users to manage and enjoy their multi-media, entertainment and Internet activities in more powerful ways than before, if they have the system platform to adequately support the new features," said Mike Magee, president and CEO of Evergreen Technologies. "Microsoft indicates a minimum 500MHz processor is needed for smooth performance, and many industry watchers say you'll need significantly more power to really enjoy the new features. In tough economic times, we expect many users of Windows XP will consider revving up their existing systems in lieu of purchasing new ones. For those on a tight budget, and with second or third systems that need a boost to run Windows XP enjoyably, Evergreen's Hardware Upgrade Bundles for Windows XP provide an affordable and effective choice."
"One of our goals with Windows XP was to build on the momentum of the Internet and digital media, uniting PCs, devices and services," said Charmaine Gravning, product manager for Windows at Microsoft Corp. "With advanced software features comes additional system power requirements. We are glad Evergreen Technologies is helping our customers bring their older PCs the power to truly enjoy their new Windows XP experience."
Evergreen's new Performa III 1GHz provides the processing power of Intel's full Coppermine PIII core--including the latest MMX and SIMD video enhancement instructions (SSE) and 256K of L2 cache memory--for upgrading early Slot 1 Pentium III and Pentium II systems running at 100MHz front side bus speeds (350MHz and higher).
Evergreen's new Performa 1GHz upgrade provides the processing power of the Intel Celeron II flip-chip processor--the value-based (128K vs. 256K L2 cache) derivative of the full Coppermine PIII core--for upgrading the same 350 MHz and higher Slot 1 Pentium III and Pentium II machines.
Based on the same Intel Celeron II flip-chip, Evergreen's new Spectra III 1GHz may be used in new system builds based on Socket 370 motherboard architecture or as an upgrade for any older Socket 370 Celeron system.
