DayStar Genesis MP+

The Genesis MP+ arrived in August 1996 in dual- and quad-processor versions based on the PowerPC 604e processor, an improved version of the 604 CPU found in the earlier Genesis MP. Note that many of these were introduced only two weeks before DayStar chose to discontinue producing Mac OS computers on 25 August 1997.

DayStar Genesis MP Macintosh cloneDayStar sold its remaining inventory to MacWorks, which repackaged the MP+ primarily as single CPU machines under the Millennium label.
