by Staff

Trans Intl has announced the availability of the elusive 512MB memory modules for Apple's G4 systems. The new memory modules allow G4 owners to expand their memory to the specified 1.5GB maximum. According to Trans Intl:

Trans Intl announced today the availability of a 512 Megabyte (MB) memory module for use in Apple's PowerMacintosh G4 350/400/450 Mhz systems. 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.
