A 512 MB high-capacity module will give graphic intense users the capability to expand their system memory up to a maximum of one and half gigabytes [1.5 GB].
The main memory architecture on the Power Macintosh G4's logic board has four RAM memory expansion slots. It is now physically possible to expand the main memory up to two gigabytes [2.0 GB Max], by installing 512 MB DIMMs in all four memory expansion slots, however, the latest MacOS 9 recognizes only 1.5 Gb of main memory.
The user can install two 256 Mb DIMMs and two 512 Mb DIMMs to maximize the system's current memory capacity up to one and a half gigabytes [1.5 GB]. These memory modules conforms to SDRAM maximum speed specifications.
