XLR8 500 MHz MACh Carrier G3 upgrade car

The XLR8 MAChCarrier G3 CPU upgrade combines the MACh Speed G3 ZIF CPU and CarrierZIF adapter into a complete performance solution.

Not only does it enable your aging PowerMac to perform like a new computer, but MAChCarrier's use of the removable ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) socket allows you to upgrade easily and inexpensively when your need for speed increases by simply changing the CPU, and not the whole card. You are ensured of a wide array of upgrade options for today and tomorrow.

  Upgrade again and again,
just by changing the
standard ZIF CPU!
Performance with peace of mind from XLR8's exclusive auto profiling and protection!
Customizable performance
with XLR8s MVP!
