[NPL] Newer Announces 500MHz G3, Price Cuts, and G4 Pricing

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Newer Technology Announces 500MHz G3 Processor Upgrades, Price Cuts, G4 Pricing
Customers can save as much as $100 on the most popular G3 upgrades

WICHITA, Kan-October 12, 1999-Newer Technology, Inc. the original developer
of third party Power Macintosh processor upgrades, today announces a new
MAXpowr G3 500MHz upgrade as well as price cuts on a number of MAXpowr G3
upgrades. Pricing and shipping for MAXpowr G4 upgrades has been updated. In
addition, a limited number of speeds will no longer be produced.

The new 500MHz G3 processor from IBM uses a 10X bus multiple which allows
Power Macs to be upgraded to 500MHz. (The 10X bus multiple multiplied by
the maximum stock bus speed of 50MHz gives a top CPU clock speed of
500MHz.) The 500MHz G3 processor has taken over the high end of the MAXpowr
G3 product line, replacing the 466MHz. The 500MHz MAXpowr G3 processor is
designed for the 7300-9600 as well as UMAX and Power Computing models. The
MAXpowr G3-G3 500MHz upgrade is designed for the beige and blue/white Power
Mac G3 systems. Both processor upgrade products simply replace the stock
processor.

MAXpowr G3 L2 300/512/200 $399 $349 -$50
MAXpowr G3 L2 300/1MB/200 $459 $399 -$60
for: Power Mac 4400, 4400 DOS, 7220 (international), 5400, 5500, 6400,
6500; Performa 5400, 5410, 5420, 5430, 5440, 6360, 6400, 6410, 6420; UMAX
C-500, C-600; Power Computing PowerBase (all); all Motorola StarMax 3000,
4000, 5000, 5500; APS M*Power series (all).

The introduction of the 500MHz G3 processor, with a MacBench 5 processor
test score of 1604, has replaced the 466MHz G3 upgrades as the top
performance upgrade. The MAXpowr products below have been discontinued to
better match customer demand. The following processor upgrades will no
longer be produced:

240-266MHz and 333-400MHz MAXpowr G3 PDS 71/81
populated MAXpowr G3-CC (ZIF carrier cards)
400MHz MAXpowr G3-L2
466MHz MAXpowr G3 (replaced by 500MHz G3)
466MHz MAXpowr G3-G3 (replaced by 500MHz G3)

These specific products may still be in stock and interested customers are
encouraged to shop Newer Technology resellers to locate any remaining
inventory. Customers are encouraged to review the MAXpowr G3 processor
upgrade "matrix" on the website
(http://www.newertech.com/matrix/index.html) for a complete overview of all
Newer Technology upgrade options.

Additional product price changes include a drop of $100 to an estimated
street price of $149 for the FireWire 2 Go CardBus FireWire adapter for the
PowerBook G3 Series computers. FireWire 2 Go is being used by digital
photographers who prefer the PowerBook G3 as a digital image capture and DV
video editing station.

The MAXpowr G4 400MHz upgrade for the blue/white Power Mac G3s will begin
shipping in late November for $799.

Availability
All Newer Technology products are available worldwide through major
distributors, with North American distribution through Ingram Micro,
Pinacor and Merisel, as well as through national resellers such as
MicroCenter, value-added resellers, online sources and Macintosh mail-order
catalogs. The Newer Technology website offers a list of resellers under the
"Where To Buy" button.

MAXpowr G3 and G4 processor upgrades come with a two year warranty,
detailed installation manual and unlimited Technical Support (toll-free in
US). FireWire 2 Go is backed by a one year warranty.

Newer Technology has lead the development of processor upgrades for
Macintosh. Newer "firsts" include MAXpowr 604 in December of 1995, the
first Power Macintosh processor upgrade, first G3 Power Mac processor
upgrade (MAXpowr G3) in August of 1997 and the first G3 processor upgrade
for the Power Mac 6100, 7100 and 8100 series (MAXpowr G3 PDS) in January of
