Macintosh Quadra 610

From Higher Intellect Vintage Wiki

The Quadra 610 was designed to be a business class workstation. This model is essentially a Macintosh Centris 610 but with a math co-processor and slight processor speed bump.

General Information[edit]

The Centris/Quadra 610 sold for $2,520.

Codename: Speedbump 610. Originally shipped with System 7.1 and system enabler 040 v1.1.

CPU[edit]

The Quadra 610 is powered by a Motorola 68040 processor clocked at 25MHz. As the Centris line was removed, you may find Quadra models using the Motorola 68LC040 processor which were originally for the Centris.

ROM[edit]

1MB ROM. AppleTalk version 57.0.4.

Troubleshooting/Repair[edit]

Capacitor replacement[edit]

The SMD capacitors on the logic board will most likely have already started leaking electrolyte out the bottom, and failing to replace them in a timely manner will result in further leakage with possible damage to nearby components. See below list of capacitors to replace:

  • 10 x 47uf 16V
