The Power Macintosh G3 series features exciting Apple innovations in processor technology and system architecture that significantly increase both performance and flexibility, to enhance your productivity and encourage your creativity. Like the processors that power them, these systems are designed to turn your ideal vision of powerful computing into affordable reality.

Built upon the PowerPC G3 -- the next-generation of PowerPC technology, and the first processor optimized for the Mac OS -- these computers dramatically alter the price/performance equation. And by incorporating a new approach to cache memory, the Power Macintosh G3 models can provide nearly twice the performance of systems based on the [[PowerPC 603e]] processor -- an improvement that far exceeds the increases in clock speed alone. In addition, these computers feature a new logic board design with a faster system bus, to maximize their power -- and yours.

Built-in 2D and 3D hardware graphics acceleration using the ATI 3D RAGE II+DVD or ATI 3D RAGE PRO-PCI graphics controller. Software support through Macintosh [[QuickDraw 3D]] and QuickDraw 3D RAVE (rendering acceleration virtual engine) APIs. The ATI 3D RAGE II+DVD graphics controller is the graphics controller used in the original Power Macintosh G3 computer.
