XLR8 500 MHz MACh Carrier G3 upgrade car
The XLR8 MAChSpeed G4 ZIF upgrade card with XLR8's extra-large, extra fast backside cache (four times the size of a PowerMac G4) and exclusive MAChSpeed Control software transforms your PowerMac G3 into an AltiVec energized supercomputer. Great for graphics, video, games, and Mac OS X. Its standard design, ensures that you get additional performance without additional compatibility issues.

No Compromise Performance.
The MAChSpeed G4 ZIF is the only PowerMac G3 CPU upgrade that can provide "Quicksilver" performance at prices under $200. Its large 1 MB backside cache allows it to outperform a 700 MHz Power Macintosh G4 "Quicksilver" system. Its exclusive design, allows the Blue & White system bus to run at full 100 MHz speeds. Competitive products limit the Blue & White's bus speed to 66 MHz.

  • Installs in minutes -- all tools and instructions included.
  • Compatible with any Mac OS since 8.6... Including Tiger 10.4.1.
  • Available with the XPOSTFACTO utility for full OSX support on older systems.
  • Includes XLR8 MAChSpeed Control for exclusive G4 performance/compatibility.
  • Available in speeds from 400 - 600 MHz.

  • No need to change motherboard jumpers all settings are self-contained.
  • All upgrades warranted at speeds sold, with Daystar's exclusive 90/720 warranty program.

No need to change Apple's motherboard jumpers! Installation into the effortless ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) socket takes just minutes. Plus, it now includes the new version of our MACh Speed Control Software for OS 9 (optional OS X version also available) which delivers an exclusive level of Velocity Engine compatibility.

OSX users get an instant boost above and beyond normal CPU speeds because Apple has optimized OSX to scream on a G4 CPU.
