Mactell Corporation Breaks the $1000 Mark for 300MHz Upgrades

AUSTIN, Texas, March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Mactell Corporation (Nasdaq: MTLL) today announced the addition of Four G3 300MHz PowerJolt 750 PowerPC processor cards to its MacOS(TM) compatible product offerings. Performance-minded users can utilize the cards to upgrade Mactell XB-PRO Series or other Tsunami-based MacOS(TM) computers at prices starting at only $995.

Mactell's new G3 PowerJolt 750 PowerPC(TM) upgrade card is designed with a separate, extremely efficient high-speed cache bus ratio. The proprietary cache bus enables it to handle CPU commands independently, eliminating loss of performance, Level 2 cache conflicts and bottlenecks, significantly increasing both computing speed and performance. The PowerJolt was recently reviewed by MacWelt in Germany and was found to outperform all other upgrade cards on the market. The G3 PowerJolt 750-PRO PowerPC card features 1mb of powerful backside cache, and the G3 PowerJolt 750 PowerPC card features 512k of backside cache, creating the fastest processor upgrades available. The G3 upgrade is available in Four different Cache Configurations at the 300 MHz speed, achieving processor scores of up to 1240, using Ziff-Davis MacBench 4.0.

The upgrades give users the additional power needed to handle resource intensive tasks such as video editing, internet authoring, and state-of-the- art multimedia. "Never before has 300MHz of performance been available at such an affordable price," said Roy Stock, president. "Mactell was the first accelerator company to offer 300MHz G3 upgrades, now we are the first to make them affordable."

G3 PowerJolt 750 PowerPC cards are compatible with Mactell's XB-PRO Series computers; Apple-Power Mac 7300, 7500, 7600, 8500, 8600, 9500, 9600; Power Computing PowerWave, PowerCurve, PowerCenter, PowerCenter Pro, PowerTower, PowerTower Pro, and UMAX Supermac S900, J700.
