View Full Version : Found an Apple PDS upgrade card on eBay, questions..

June 9th, 2012, 12:07 AM
I have a performa 575 right now, and i am wanting to throw the PPC upgrade in it just to do it (i know it'll only be 66MHz, but i want it anyway)

i found this one on eBay, and it says it's for the Quadra by what i can find looking it up

Just wondering if there is any way i can wrangle to make this work in my cramped case, or would i be better off just putting in a PDS ethernet card?

any suggestions?

You need a Quadra PDS slot (Q800/900/950/700) for that upgrade not a LC PDS slot.

For the LC 475, you need one of the following (it's all the same card, made by DayStar):

Apple Power Mac Processor Upgrade
DayStar PowerCard 601
Sonnet Presto PPC 605

dang, well it was worth a shot.

well anyway if anyone needs one, there's one for the quadra going for fairly cheap

anyone have any idea where i might be able to find one for this performa?

Just periodically check eBay, LEM Swap, and Craigslist.
