[8:00 AM] Upgrade Your PowerMac To A 300 MHz G3 For Under US$300
by Staff

Joining the upgrade card price reduction parade, Newer Technology has announced a price drop on their MAXpowr G3 300 upgrade card. The price drops makes upgrading your PowerMac to a G3 cost less than US$300. According to Newer:

Newer Technology announces a price reduction of $60 on the popular MAXpowr G3 300/1MB/200 processor upgrade for PowerMacs. Previously priced at $359, MAXpowr G3 is now $299.

This G3 processor upgrade offers a 300MHz G3 CPU with 1MB of backside cache running on a 200MHz cache bus. It is designed for the PowerMac 7300, 7500, 7600, 8500, 8600, 9500, 9600; UMAX J700 and S900 series; Power Computing PowerCenter, PowerCenter Pro, PowerTower, PowerTower Pro, PowerWave and PowerCurve.

You can find more information, and a complete product listing, at the Newer Technology web site.

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.
