[4:00 PM] XLR8 Shows Off Multiprocessing G4 Upgrade Card
by Staff

At MACWORLD Tokyo, XLR8 demonstrated a planned option for easily taking advantage of Apple's G4/OS X multiprocessing capabilities. The new upgrade card will allow simple installation of an additional processor. According to XLR8:

Using a multiprocessing ready version if its patent pending CarrierZIF, XLR8 showed a dual ZIF CPU riser concept card that allows its CarrierZIF 2.0 to implement multiprocessing using standard G4 ZIF CPU daughtercards. The XLR8 MP riser is designed to also support multiprocessing ZIF daughtercards in Apple's Power Macintosh G3 and ZIF G4 systems,

"Our modular concept allows users to easily upgrade as their need for speed increases," said Jack Kolk, General Manager of XLR8. "We're even taking this one step further. Users can upgrade with XLR8 today, then move up to Multiprocessing with absolutely no-penalty, because we'll have a program for upgrading from CarrierZIF 1.0 to 2.0."

Release and pricing availability have not yet been determined. You can find more information at the XLR8 web site.
