Quote from: "helf"heh, isn't a 100mhz 060 *faster* than a 601?I know the early PPC chips sucked hard. A guy I know had a dual 603 133mhz BeBox and it wouldn't even play mp3s of a decent bitrate without choppiness. Of course that could have been something else causing that...
Quote from: "helf"Also a late reply... I found out one of the reasons his bebox would do that is because the ppc603 Be used wasn't meant for SMP. Their setup was a dirty hack. They had to keep cache coherency between the two CPUs via software. That slowed things down a LOT.
Quote from: "niteshooter"Hi sorry for the late comment...Speaking of Daystar accelerators, has anyone tried the 040 to PPC socket adaptor that Apple/Daystar sold? It replaced the 040 cpu with a PPC cpu on a daughtercard. I suspect the problem will be clearance as it doesn't look like there will be enough room in the slot for the added height of this card.K
