PowerLogix Announces 2.0 GHz PowerForce G4
7447A CPU Upgrade Card New PowerLogix upgrades are fastest ever
for many Mac models,
consume less power and run cooler than other cards
(August 9, 2005) - PowerLogix today announced immediate availability
of the 2.0 gigahertz (GHz) Single Processor PowerForce G4 7447A processor
The 2.0 GHz PowerForce G4 7447A utilizes the latest, fastest available FreeScale
PowerPC 7447A and includes 512K of on-board L2 cache. It is immediately available
for $399 from Other World Computing.
"Motorola/FreeScale's new 7447/7447A G4 processor has allowed us to provide high
performance upgrades at an extremely competitive price," said Larry O'Connor,
president of OWC, master distributor for PowerLogix. "In addition to performance,
PowerLogix 7447A CPU upgrades are the lowest power-consuming and coolest running
upgrades in the industry. No competitor comes close."
The card features an on-board thermal sensor and real-time thermal monitoring.
Dynamic Frequency Switching (DFS) is also supported for significantly reduced
power demand. These features enable the PowerForce G4 7447A to operate at high
speed and highest power efficiency, for the coolest possible operation. No other
product on the market has even one of these of features, let alone the full combination.
CPU Director, Powerlogix's proprietary software utility, is included with the
card. CPU Director enables the user to monitor the most important parameters
of their CPU Upgrade and features a real-time graphical temperature readout.
The 2.0 GHz PowerForce G4 7447A is available for Power Mac G4 AGP Graphics (Sawtooth),
Gigabit Ethernet, Digital Audio, Quicksilver and Quicksilver 2002 models. It
is compatible with Mac OS 9.x and Mac OS X 10.3.5 and higher (Mac OS X 10.3.9
or higher is required for thermal monitoring and DFS features).
OWC also has available a 7447A 1.8GHz for $339 and 7447A duals running from 1.2
