Daystar Technology on Friday announced
a 1.92GHz upgrade
for flat panel iMac G4 systems whose processors are clocked at 1.0 and 1.25GHz. The upgrade costs US$588, and Daystar is offering free shipping.
Daystar offers three-way shipping — a box is sent to you, you pack up your iMac, the system is upgrade and then returned to you. The processor originally included with your system is replaced with a Freescale 7447 CPU clocked at 1.92GHz with 512KB Level 2 cache.
Daystar said the processor upgrade is compatible with Mac OS 9.2 and later, including Mac OS X v10.4 “Tiger.” Included with the upgrade is Daystar’s XLR8 MAChSpeed Control to manage the processor.
This upgrade accompanies an earlier announced 1.35GHz upgrade for iMac G4 systems equipped with 700MHz and 800MHz processors.
