Overview

Give your system a performance power boost! TechWorks is now offering the fastest CPU upgrades on the market. The PowerCPU G3 processor upgrades give you double the performance of current PowerPC 604e-based upgrades. Designed with the third generation (G3) PowerPC 750 processor chip, the PowerCPU G3 250MHz includes 512K of backside cache while the PowerCPU G3 300MHz includes 1MB of backside cache. Both will revolutionize the way you think about CPU upgrades.

HOW IT WORKS

The new PowerPC 750 processor chip combined with backside cache technology produce the fastest single processor card upgrade system available. Utilizing the system bus speed of your computer, these processor upgrades run at 300MHz and 250MHz. With the backside cache technology, the cache memory resides on its own bus running at 150MHz and 125MHz, respectively. Traditional cache configurations run on the system bus speed, which is much slower. Because of this, the PowerCPU G3 processor upgrades give you double, even triple, the performance of your PowerPC system today.

THE FASTEST PC ON THE PLANET!

You can easily upgrade your system to be the fastest computer system on the planet with TechWorks' PowerCPU G3 processor upgrades. They work with most PowerPC-based Macintosh computers and will make your system really SCREAM!

  • PowerPC 750 G3 accelerator card for PowerPC MacOS based systems
