Other World Computing (OWC) today announced that the top-end model of its Mercury Extreme G4 processor upgrade line now supplies up to 1.5 Gigahertz (GHz) of plug-and-play performance to PowerMac G4 models.

OWC has also reduced prices by as much as $40 on select Mercury Extreme G4 models. The new prices are effective immediately online through OWC at www.macsales.com/extreme.

A simple replacement upgrade for older, slower processors, the Mercury Extreme G4 line features Tantalum-dipped components and an ultra-quiet custom cooling system with a pre-attached heat-sink and fan in order to maximize the reliability and longevity of the upgrade.

The new pricing is as follows:

OWC Mercury Extreme G4/1.0GHz - $329.99 (was $349.99),
OWC Mercury Extreme G4/1.25-1.33GHz - $399.99 (was $419.99),
OWC Mercury Extreme G4/1.25-1.4GHz - $439.99 (was $449.99),
OWC Mercury Extreme G4/1.4-1.467GHz - $499.99 (was $539.99), and
OWC Mercury Extreme G4/1.4-1.5GHz - $529.99 (was $549.99).

All Mercury Extreme G4 upgrades feature 256 Kilobytes of 1:1 L2 cache on-chip and 2 Megabytes of high-speed L3 Cache. They are compatible with Apple PowerMac G4 AGP Graphics (Sawtooth), Gigabit Ethernet, Digital Audio and Quicksilver models and support Mac OS 9.2.1 and higher, as well as OS X and higher, including all 10.3.x versions. Each Extreme G4 processor upgrade is backed by a three-year warranty and a 30-day 100 percent money-back guarantee.
