1.92GHz PB G4 upgrade

today announced it is completing development of the first XLR8 PowerBook G4 (Aluminum) CPU Upgrade. The PowerBook G4 upgrade dubbed, "XLR8 MAChSpeed PowerBook G4," is scheduled to ship next month. "Like the XLR8 MAChSpeed G4 Pismo, Lombard, Titainum and iMac Flat Panel CPU upgrades, the PowerBook G4 upgrade will be a full system upgrade, requiring the user to send their PowerBook to Daystar for installation." While pricing and final specifications are expected to be announced closer to the actual product release date, the company says that xBench 1.2 benchmarking scores jump from high 20's to nearly 50, surpassing the fastest PowerBook G4 to-date. The upgrade will feature factory installation via Apple Certified Technicians, shipping with Daystar's custom boxes and prepaid FedEx shipping options, and compatibility with Classic and Mac OS 10.3.5/10.4.3.
