Other World Computing has expanded its Mercury Extreme product line to include G4/1.4-1.467GHz and G4/1.25-1.26GHz processor upgrades. They’re now available for US$619.99 and $499.99, respectively.
OWC’s Mercury Extreme processor upgrades are compatible with Power Mac G4 AGP-equipped models (350MHz to 1GHz). They serve as replacements to the stock G4 daughtercard, which means they don’t use up a separate PCI or AGP slot. Each upgrade comes with a pre-installed heat sink and cooling fan.
The Mercury Extreme G4 processor upgrades feature 256KB of 1:1 L2 cache on-chip and 2MB of synchronous dynamic RAM (DDR L3) operating at up to 267MHz. They support Mac OS X and Mac OS 9.2.1 and higher.
