Newer Technology will ship its MAXpowr G4 upgrades in November, the company has announced.

The upgrades are 400MHz G4 ZIFs for the blue-&-white Power Mac G3s. Newer says that, as more G4 chips become available, it will begin shipping G4 upgrades for the 604-based Power Macs.

Newer also expects to ship 350MHz and 450MHz G4 upgrades “later this year”, subject to the availability of the G4 chips from Motorola - currently the sole supplier of the processors.

Newer Technology products are distributed in the UK by AM Micro (01392 426473) and IMC (0870 840 2121). UK pricing has not yet been announced.
