Turning a single processor G4 into a dual processor.


Matchless

Recommended Posts

Today at a session one of the guys told me he turned his single processor G4 into a dual processor.

Any of you guys heard about this?

One of his buddies who works for Protools told him of the mod and how to do it and that this was a better move performance wise than wasting his $ on a G5.

matchless some g4s are not compatible with dual processor upgrades ,there is a test u can download to check compatability.

the single processors go up to 1.4 ghz.mine is working great,

i went from g4 agp 400 to 1.4 ghz.i am running logic 7 just fine

it was so easy to install.

Seeing that a single G5 1.8GHz is roughly the same performance as a dual 1.2GHz G4, and also has a faster bus, I doubt that he would get better performance than an iMac, wouldn't be able to touch a dual G5 performance wise.

 

Also PTLE doen't take full advantage of dual processors.
