In the April 7, 1996 issue of Info Alley, we published a matrix regarding Processor Upgrade Card compatibility for the PCI-Based Power Macintosh computers. Several of you had questions about this matrix, which we attempted to answer below.
- Currently, all PCI-based Power Macintosh computers that are capable of accepting processor upgrade cards will be able to support future Processor Upgrade Cards of up to 200 MHz. These computers include the Power Macintosh 7500, 7600, 8500, and 9500 series computers. However, none of the current PCI-based Power Macintosh computers include a 200 MHz card. Additionally, the only CURRENT Processor Upgrade Cards available are the 120 MHz and 132 MHz cards.
- These terms will assist you in interpeting the matrix:
Finished Goods P/N
As mentioned above, the only Macintosh Processor Upgrade Cards currently available are the 120 MHz and 132 MHz cards. When ordering these upgrades from Apple-authorized service providers or resellers, you will need to provide their corresponding Finished Goods part number.
Apple-authorized service providers use the Service Part numbers to order service parts from Apple.
If you do not know the Finished Goods or Service part numbers of a particular Processor Card, use the Assembly Code to determine compatibility. The Assembly Part numbers are placed on the card with either a sticker or white stenciling.
Some cards may have a label on them to clarify compatibility.
