Giga Designs, Sonnet Announce 1.7 GHz G4 Upgrades
12:12 PM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

Long live the G4 processor! Giga Designs and Sonnet have both announced upgrades that utilize Motorola Freescale's fastest G4 processors. Giga Designs debuted six new G-celerator products, including two G4 Cube-compatible models and two dual processor models for AGP Power Macs. Sonnet introduced one upgrade each for G4 towers and the G4 Cube, each running at 1.7 GHz, while lowering prices on its other G4 upgrades by up to $100.

Both companies use the PowerPC 7447A processor, which does not have an L3 cache, but features 512 KB L2 cache. On Giga Designs' dual processor models, each processor is fitted with 512 KB L2 cache.

Giga Designs' single and dual processor upgrades start at $449 and $699, respectively. Sonnet's 1.7 GHz Encore/ST upgrades each has an MSRP of $499. Both companies list a December 2004 availability date for their products.
