DP 1.7GHz G4 upgrade

Giga Designs is now shipping what it claims to be the available for Apple's AGP-equipped G4 Power Macs, including the Power Mac Cube. The new G-celerator AGP 7A series upgrades use the latest G4 processors (7447A) available from Freescale (formerly Motorola) and feature 512KB on-chip L2 cache. The G-celerator AGP 7A series includes both single- and dual-processor upgrades for the "Gigabit Ethernet" thru "Quicksilver 2002" & dual-processor compatible "AGP Graphics (Sawtooth)" models and single-processor upgrades the Power Mac "Cube". The Cube upgrade supports fanless operation at 1.6GHz and 1.7GHz+ operation with the addition of a low-speed fan. They will begin shipping later this month for $450 (single-processor 1.42GHz tested at 1.7GHz), $500 (SP 1.6GHz tested at 1.73GHz), $700 (dual-processor 1.42GHz tested at 1.73GHz), and $800 (DP 1.6GHz tested at 1.73GHz).
