PowerLogix announced today that they have expanded their award-winning line of G3 and G4 processor upgrades to include the dynamic, new iForce upgrade for the immensely popular iMac computer from Apple.
"We are the first manufacturer to offer a no-hassle, low cost alternative to the millions of iMac owners," said Robin Sharp, Marketing Director for PowerLogix R&D, Inc. "The iForce offers bold performance increases at only a modest cost. Unlike our competitor's offer, there is no need to send in your old processor to receive a rebate. Our cards are priced so that the rebate&Mac226; is instantaneous. We are offering a full 1mb of backside cache on our high end iForce board. This is double the size of even the latest iMacs from Apple, for $500 less than the cost of a new machine."
The iForce ships with either 512k or 1MB of backside cache.
MacBench 5.0 tests run on the iForce boards indicate that even with the low-end 400MHz card, the user can increase the performance of their machine by 50%. The high-end 500Mhz iForce beats even the iMac DV from Apple by 33%.
