Sonnet Technologies Inc.
on Wednesday announced price drops on its entire line of
processor upgrades. Designed to work with “Sawtooth”-era Power Mac G4s, the upgrades replace the Power Mac’s existing processor with one clocked at a higher speed — 800MHz to 1.4GHz.
The Sonnet Encore/ST line work with Power Mac G4s ranging from the AGP graphics models to the Quicksilver systems manufactured in 2001. They also work with Macintosh Server G4 systems and Power Mac G4 Cubes, when used with an additional installation kit (which Sonnet recommends be installed professionally).
The Encore/ST G4 800MHz system is now US$269.95, down $10 from before. The 1.0GHz, 1.2GHz and 1.4GHz models have each seen their prices drop by $50, to $349.95, $449.95 and $549.95 respectively.
