The main logic board in the Power Macintosh 5500 is a plug-in logic board that incorporates a PowerPC 603e microprocessor, a second-level (L2) cache expansion slot, one or two Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) card expansion slots, enhanced AV features (audio and video input and output), and a PCI-based communications slot (comm slot II).

General Information


PowerPC 603e microprocessor running at 175 MHz, 200 MHz, 225 MHz, and 250 MHz (later with 275MHz).


0 MB on the main logic board; expandable to 128 MB using 168-pin JEDEC-standard 5-volt buffered EDO (extended data out) DIMM (dual inline memory module) devices with 2K refresh rate. Two DIMM slots are provided for DRAM expansion.


Video display modes supported on built-in monitor port: 640 by 480, 800 by 600, and 832 by 624 at 32 bits per pixel; 1024 by 768 and 1152 by 870 at 16 bits per pixel; 1280 by 1024 at 8 bits per pixel; 2 MB synchronous graphics RAM (SGRAM) frame buffer on the main logic board.
