PowerLogix Updates Upgrade Cache Controlling Software For OS X

PowerLogix has released an update for Cache Control X to version 1.2. The new version includes support for Mac OS X 10.1.x, and a command line interface for controlling L2 cache in the companyis line of processor upgrade cards. From PowerLogix:

PowerLogix announced today the release of the latest edition of their new cache enabling utility, Cache Control X 1.2. Cache Control X is compatible with OS X 10.1.x and allows users to adjust L2 cache settings, and also set speculative addressing and dynamic power management. The settings are then applied automatically during boot.

Cache Control X also includes a command line interface for changing L2 cache settings. The software works with all PowerLogix upgrade cards. (Some models of PowerLogix cards like the PowerForce G4 ZIF and BlueChip G3is set the cache automatically and do not require software.)

Cache Control X offers all the typical options for backside cache ratio and works for 256K to 2MB backside cache sizes, rather than limiting the end user to one setting. Cache Control X allows anyone who has successfully installed OS X on their machines, even owners of the daughtercard style G3 and G4 upgrades, to enable their backside cache.

Cache Control X is available for download at
