G4 upgrade prices reduced
Other World Computing today has reduced prices by as much as 10 percent on its line of G4 processor upgrades. ZThe Mercury Extreme G4 line features Tantalum-dipped components and an ultra-quiet custom cooling system with a pre-attached heat-sink and fan in "order to maximize the reliability and longevity of the upgrade," according to the company. The company cut prices by $30 on its 867MHz-933MHz (now $250), 867MHz-1.0GHz (now $270), G4/1.0-1.1GHz (now $300), and G4/1.25-1.4GHz ($420). The G4/1.25-1.33GHz is now $390 ($10 drop) and the G4/1.4-1.467GHz is $480 ($20 drop).
Mercury Extreme G4 upgrades feature 256KB of 1:1 L2 cache on-chip and 2MB of high-speed L3 Cache. They are compatible with the PowerMac G4 AGP Graphics (Sawtooth), Gigabit Ethernet, Digital Audio and Quicksilver models, and with Mac OS 9.2.1 or higher, all versions of OS X 10.0.4 and later including 10.3.x Panther versions. Each Extreme G4 processor upgrade is backed by a three-year warranty and a 30-day 100 percent money-back guarantee.
