G3 Cache Profiler is the all-in-one reporting and configuring software solution for any G3 upgrade card or PowerMac G3 computer. G3 Cache Profiler is an application that combines the best features of the popular control panel utility from PowerLogix, G3 Cache Control, with the features of PowerLogix's SpeedMeter&Mac250; application.
Other features exclusive to G3 Cache Profiler include control over dynamic power management, speculative addressing, and Linux compatibility. The first two options are for full compatibility with computers that originally shipped with 60x processors. This allows those computers, when upgraded with G3 processors, to have full compatibility and functionality as compared to Power Macintosh G3 models.
G3 Cache Profiler offers settings for full compatibility with Adaptec 29040UW (including bootup with v2.5 firmware), Dantz Retrospect, Cubase, Media 100, Matrox video cards, and other hardware and software.
G3 Cache Profiler also includes the G3 Cache Profiler INIT which automatically configures the computer on restart for optimum G3 operation.
