XLR8 Announces "Fall Into G4" Promotion

Buy an XLR8 G3 processor upgrade now, upgrade to a G4 processor at a lower
price later

ATLANTA, GA -- Today, XLR8, the award-winning leader in Macintosh
performance and peripherals, announced its new Fall Into G4 promotion. This
promotion allows users to purchase their MACh Carrier G3* upgradeable
upgrade immediately (Fall '99), then upgrade to G4 for as little as $500 in
January when new software and better revisions of the G4 CPU are expected.
The initial upgrade purchase plus the cost of a G4 upgrade in January is
less than the current price of a G4 upgrade alone.
The Fall Into G4 Promotion offers professionals a range of benefits:

* immediate access to maximum G3 performance and 100% compatibility
* begin working up to 10 times faster while Motorola's G4 is perfected
* upgrade to G4 beginning in January at a lower cost
* XLR8's forthcoming AltiVecTM performance options, at no additional cost

"For the next 90 days, Motorola's G4 CPU design is undergoing manufacturing
revisions with a variety of errata and unusual requirements," said Gary
Dailey, Director of Marketing for XLR8. "This promotion delivers immediate
access to the best boards at the fastest speeds without compromise."

The simplicity of the Fall Into G4 promotion is made possible by XLR8's
exclusive Carrier Upgrade Technology. The customer buys and installs the
patent pending upgrade, then moves to an advanced revision of G4 later by
simply swapping the CPU ZIF (zero insertion force) daughtercard.
All MACh Carrier G3's purchased by US Customers September 1, 1999 through
December 15, 1999 qualify for the Fall Into G4 promotion. Other XLR8
upgrades qualify for the standard XLR8 Performance Trade-Up Program. **
Users will register for their G4 upgrade via www.xlr8.com. Star-Teck,
XLR8's service center, will complete the transaction.

"This promotion piggybacks our Performance Trade-Up Program. It offers the
user an added financial benefit to immediately upgrade to a fast and mature
processor without the premium price or early adopter caveats," explains
Jack Kolk, General Manager of XLR8. "General application comparisons
between G3 and G4 processors have shown equal speed, with the exception of
AltiVec enabled software. Until the software is optimized, this promotion
offers equal speed at a lower price with lower risk."

For additional information about G3 and G4 processor upgrades or other XLR8
products, a full information resource is available at
http://www.xlr8.com/g4/index.html.
*MACh Carrier G3/G4 is 100% compatible with Power Mac 7300-9600,
PowerComputing PowerCenter (&Pro), PowerTower (&Pro), PowerWave, UMAX S900,
J700, and DayStar Genesis 720 up and Millennium

**XLR8 Performance Trade-Up Program offers a 15 to 20% discount to trade up
from a previously purchased XLR8 Upgrade. See website for complete details.
