[NPL] XLR8's G4 upgrades

XLR8 ANNOUNCES SUPERCOMPUTING UPGRADES AND A NEW VERSION OF ITS "CACHE
BLASTING" SOFTWARE

XLR8's G4 upgrades MACh Carrier G4 and MACh Speed G4z are being reviewed
online today! Version 1.4 of MACh Speed Control offers new AltiVec and G4
features

ATLANTA, GA - - On the shoulders of Apple's introduction of G4 with its
AltiVec velocity engine, XLR8, the award-winning leader in Macintosh
performance and peripherals, announced the availability of its newest
upgrade, XLR8 MACh Carrier G4. This new technology builds on XLR8's patent
pending designs with plug and play performance for all "beige" Power
Macintosh systems from the Power Mac 7300 through the Power Macintosh G3
and clones. XLR8 enhances this package with custom G4 and AltiVec
utilities, and additional AltiVec performance enhancements for the leading
graphics application, Adobe Photoshop.

"We're pushing the technology forward, and we're thrilled to be leading the
performance curve with Apple," said Gary Dailey, Director of Marketing for
XLR8, "Additional AltiVec performance software with blue & white
compatibility is being readied in our labs now."

XLR8 MACh Carrier G4 - The 2-for-1 Upgradeable Upgrade The MACh Carrier G4
builds on the XLR8's award-winning technology. It replaces the existing CPU
card and is easily upgradeable by simply swapping its ZIF (Zero Insertion
Force) daughtercard for faster speeds. Users can also get a 2-for-1 value
by "splitting" its cards, then upgrading a G3 system to G4, and using the
G3 ZIF card on the Carrier in the older Mac. It uses the standard MACh
Speed Control and includes AltiVec utilities and performance extensions.
MACh/G4C400/1 400 MHz MACh Carrier G4 Intro SRP: $999
MACh/G4C450/1 450 MHz MACh Carrier G4 Intro SRP: $1,299
MACh/G4C500/1 500 MHz MACh Carrier G4 Intro SRP: TBA

XLR8 MACh Speed G4z - Supercomputing for the PowerMac G3 The MACh Speed
G4z is a ZIF based daughtercard that allows "beige" Power Macintosh G3
owners and XLR8 CarrierZIF owners to upgrade instantly to G4 performance.
The board simply replaces the standard G3 ZIF daughtercard.
MACh/G4Z400/1 400 MHz MACh Speed G4z Intro SRP: $879
MACh/G4Z450/1 450 MHz MACh Speed G4z Intro SRP: $1,199
MACh/G4Z500/1 500 MHz MACh Speed G4z Intro SRP: TBA

XLR8's MACh Speed Control 1.4, w/ PowerPack Software Building upon it's
exclusive compatibility and automated interface, this release adds new
benefits including full AltiVecTM and G4 compatibility, full support for G3
PowerBooks and upgrades, a low-power cache mode, a motherboard cache
switch, with continued interface optimization, and AltiVec enhanced
PowerPack software tools.

"MACh Speed Control 1.4 is another example of our ongoing effort to improve
our existing products and continually bring new technologies to the
Macintosh platform," says Jack Kolk, Vice President of XLR8. "Keeping our
compatibility technology based in software allows us to lead with another
first in upgrades."

XLR8's Performance Trade-Up Program XLR8 continues its dedication to
customer value with emphasis on its Performance Trade-Up Program announced
last month. Full plug and play G4 compatibility allows XLR8 to upgrade its
customers to the latest performance standard, including G4, by providing
aggressive Trade-Up discounts directly from XLR8. The Trade-Up program
allows users to Purchase inexpensive G3 upgrades today, then move up to G4
when its price is not at a premium.

product owners qualify for a free upgrade via http://www.xlr8.com. Users of
native G3 systems (iMac, PowerBook G3, Power Macintosh G3), and competitive
