Sonnet dual-G4 upgrade for MDD, Xserve

updated 08:25 am EDT, Tue September 12, 2006

Sonnet Encore/MDX G4 Duet

Sonnet on Tuesday announced a new line of dual processor upgrade cards---the Encore/MDX G4 Duet, which it says is the first high-speed processor cards for Apple's Power Mac G4 MDD (Mirrored Drive Door) and Xserve G4. The Encore/MDX G4 Duet, available in 1.6GHz and 1.8GHz speeds, comes complete for installation into either tower or server. The original MDDs and G4 Xserves were shipped in 2003 and 2004 in single- and dual-CPU configurations starting at 867MHz and 1GHz, respectively. Encore/MDX G4 Duet upgrades are based on the Freescale Semiconductor (formerly a division of Motorola) PowerPC G4 7447A processors, featuring 512K of SRAM on-chip L2 cache per processor. They are compatible with Mac OS 9.2, and Mac OS X 10.3.5 and higher. Each upgrade includes a factory-attached heat sink, fan, and mounting bracket for either MDD or Xserve installation. The Encore/MDX G4 Duet line will be available in early October for $500 (1.6GHz) and $600 (1.8GHz).
