POWERLOGIX ANNOUNCES POWERBOOST MACH 9 ACCELERATOR
 
AUSTIN, TEXAS, October 24, 1996--PowerLogix today introduced the Mach 9, a new model in the acclaimed PowerBoost Series of Accelerators for MacOS computers.
 
The introduction of the PowerBoost Mach 9 has set new records for clock speeds, achieving speeds of over 260 MHz, at least 35 MHz faster than the previous record-holder. The PowerBoost features an innovative, patent pending design with breakthrough performance, resulting in clock speeds of 250 MHz (or higher) when installed into the Power Computing PowerTower Pro MacOS system. The combination of the PowerBoost Mach 9 and the PowerTower Pro creates the world's fastest personal computer system.
 
Tests using MacBench 3.0 indicate processor ratings upwards of 54, depending upon the actual clock speed. (Our tests show a rating of over 54 at 257 MHz, and almost 57 at 268 MHz.) The combination of the PowerBoost Mach 9 with the PowerTower Pro 225 create the first MacOS computer system to break a processor rating of 50.
 
The PowerBoost Mach 9 will accelerate all models of the Power Computing 604 and 604e line, including the PowerCenter 120, 132, 150, 166, & 180; the PowerTower 120, 132, 150, 166, 180; PowerTower 180e, PowerTower Pro 200, and Pro 225. Maximum performance levels are determined by variables such as bus speed headroom and limitations of the individual computer. The Mach 9 joins PowerLogix's current family of accelerators for Apple PowerMacs, with the most models of any accelerator offering.
 
With the Mach 9, PowerCenter 120s can now perform equal to or better than a PowerCenter 166, or a PowerTower 150 can perform equal to or better than a PowerTower Pro 180. Yet this additional performance is available for significantly less cost than purchasing a higher level machine.
 
PowerLogix also announced the new PowerBoost Mach 9R Accelerator, which is compatible with all models of Apple Computer's PowerMac 7600, 8500, and 9500 from 120 to 200 MHz; PowerMac 7500 (with Apple 604 or 604e processor card from 120-200); as well as Power Computing's PowerWave 120, 132, and 150. Tests show that a Mach 8R, when installed on the Apple 604e/180 Processor Card, is capable of generating over 235 MHz in clock speed, and this combination also outperforms the previous speed record-holder.
 
The PowerBoost family of accelerators includes the most innovative designs and most features of any competing product, such as LED indicators, remote control operation, speed adjustments with 0.50 MHz increments, and microprocessor-control frequency selection. The real beauty of the PowerBoost is being able to adjust clock speeds to match the full capabilities of an individual computer.
 
With these features the PowerBoost line, when combined with the fastest computers systems from Apple and Power Computing, offers more speed options and more performance than any other Mac OS system (or any other personal computer of any type) and takes full advantage of the performance of the new PowerPC 604e.
 
With the increased speed the PowerBoost offers, processor-intensive tasks such as the manipulation of large files, complex graphics, or scientific applications are now completed faster than ever before.
 
For additional performance with the fastest PowerPC processors, PowerLogix manufactures the high-performance RapidCache line of Level 2 cache.
PowerBoost Accelerators are available from MacOS VARs, resellers, dealers and mail order outlets.
 
Both the Mach 8R and Mach 9 will be shipping very soon. To be notified of first availability, please drop us an email to this address: m8rm9@powerlogix.com.
 
The PowerBoost Mach 9 and Mach 8R have a retail price of $179. The PowerBoost line is 100% compatible with all hardware and software, includes a standard 3 year warranty and a 30 day money back satisfaction guarantee.

POWERLOGIX INTRODUCES HIGH SPEED CACHE FOR 5260'S AND 5400'S
 
May 1, 1996, Austin, Texas---PowerLogix introduces a new high-speed RapidCache for the PowerMac 5260 and 5400. PowerLogix is now offering the high-speed RapidCache 256K-5260 and the 256K-5400 for the latest models of PowerMacs.

MacWeek regarding the importance of Level 2 Cache: "(Not having a Level 2 cache) is false economy: without a secondary cache...processors are frequently left spinning their wheels waiting for data. When we added 256 Kbytes of cache...scores on MacBench 3.0's Processor test jumped 39 percent, while the Graphics Mix score improved an amazing 60 percent."

 
POWERLOGIX ANNOUNCES COMPLETE LINE OF CPU ACCELERATORS
 
May 1, 1996, Austin, Texas---PowerLogix introduces a complete line of PowerBoost CPU accelerators for the following computers: PowerMac 6100, 7100, 8100, 7200, 7500, 8500, 9500, Performa 61xx Series, Radius 81/110, various Quadra/Centris models, and the Power Computing PowerWave, PowerTower, and PowerCenter.


The PowerBoost offers features the "clock chippers" can only dream about! Sophisticated intelligent electronic design, easy to install,with hundreds of available frequencies, and full microprocessor control!

The PowerBoost Mach 7 is the first available CPU accelerator for the PowerMac 7200/90 and 7500/100, offering speed boosts of up to 30% and more.

Offering features not seen on any other competing product, the PowerBoost Mach series gives the user:

Remote Control -- no need to tear apart your computer just to change settings (or change crystals)!
A Minimum of 100 Frequencies -- like having 100 crystals at your disposal and the turn of a dial!
Microprocessor Control -- using a RISC-style chip!
LED Diagnostics -- easy to install and set up
Circuit Protection -- even if installed backwards!
Twin Rotary Speed Dials -- no clumsy DIP switches, no jeweler's tools needed!
 
 
POWERLOGIX ANNOUNCES RAPIDCACHE FOR 7200, 7500 AND 8500
 
April 15, 1996, Austin, Texas---PowerLogix introduces the high-speed RapidCache for the 7200, 7500, and 8500.

After being one the very first Level 2 cache manufacturers back in 1994, PowerLogix has followed up with the high-speed RapidCache 256D and 512D for the second generation PowerMacs. Fully capable of running at the high bus speeds required for accelerated machines, the RapidCache is also fully compatible and exhibits none of the problems seen by other brands of Level 2 cache in the 7500. Also works in new Power Computing machines.

MacWeek regarding the importance of Level 2 Cache: "(Not having a Level 2 cache) is false economy: without a secondary cache...processors are frequently left spinning their wheels waiting for data. When we added 256 Kbytes of cache...scores on MacBench 3.0's Processor test jumped 39 percent, while the Graphics Mix score improved an amazing 60 percent."
