XLR8 makers of Macintosh upgrade and expansion products today released the latest version of their award winning processor control software - MACh Speed Control 2.0.2. This release works with Mac OS 7.5.5 to 9.1. The new version includes improved layout and usability features, improved 'architecturally accurate' graphics, multiprocessing support, thermal monitoring, accurate memory interleaving displays, and enhanced AltiVec support for G4 processors.
This is the latest version of the most compatible, and therefore the best, software available for controlling PowerPC processors on the Mac. No other upgrade manufacturer comes close to the overall features of the MACh Speed Control software, but the new enhanced AltiVec support is the killer. Our implementation of the Velocity Engine or AltiVec support for both single and dual processors is without equal. This software guarantees youll get the best performance today, and still have the option to use your MACh Speed G4 ZIF MPe processors to upgrade to multiprocessing tomorrow, said Jack Kolk, VP and General Manager of XLR8.
This version of software does not yet support Mac OS X. Users wanting OS X support should use XLR8 MACh Speed Control X software which is also available as a free download from XLR8's website at www.xlr8.com. By using this software, the backside cache on all G3s and G4,s in Beige Power Macintosh G3 and later machines will be enabled at a processor to cache ratio of 2:1 with write through off.
