9:38 AM | Cord Kruse | 5 comments

Sonnet Technologies has announced a new line of dual processor upgrade cards for Apple's Power Mac G4 MDD (Mirrored Drive Door) and XServe G4. The Encore/MDX G4 Duet is available in 1.6 GHz and 1.8 GHz configurations and will retail for $499.99 and $599.99 respectively.

The Encore/MDX G4 Duet comes complete for installation into either tower or server. The original MDDs and G4 XServes were shipped in 2003 and 2004 in single and dual cpu configurations starting at 867 MHz and 1GHz, respectively. States Robert Farnsworth, Sonnet CEO, “Like all of our cpu upgrades, the Encore/MDX is a simple and economical speed bump for someone invested in a hardware and software configuration. Upgrading a single 1GHz to a dual 1.8 GHz can yield significant performance improvements.”

Encore/MDX G4 Duet upgrades are based on the Freescale Semiconductor (formerly a division of Motorola) PowerPC™G4 7447A processors, featuring 512K of SRAM on-chip L2 cache per processor. They are compatible with Mac OS® 9.2, and Mac OS X Version 10.3.5 and higher. Each upgrade includes a factory-attached heat sink, fan, and mounting bracket for either MDD or Xserve installation.

The Encore/MDX G4 Duet 1.6 GHz and 1.8 GHz supports Mac OS X Version 10.3.5 or later, or Mac OS 9.2.
