The Mac Observer Spin: The current round of price cuts coming from Newer, Sonnet, Powerlogix, and XLR8 are making it cheaper than ever to get more power out of your PowerMac. This card is particularly attractive because the cache is running at a higher speed than many of the higher MHz rated cards can.
