The Power Mac 7600 is identical to the 7500 – except for the processor card. The 7500 shipped with a 100 MHz PowerPC 601 CPU; the 7600 with a 120 MHz or 132 MHz PPC 604 or a 200 MHz 604e.

Power Mac 7600Thanks to its daughter card design, it can be upgraded with a faster 604e, a G3, or even a G4 CPU card.

Cautions

  • Apple discontinued support and parts orders for this model on 2001.10.15 (2001.10.22 in Canada), except in California. You may be able to find dealers with parts inventory either locally or on our parts and service list.
  • Because of the way the internal SCSI cable is routed in the 7300-7600, it is very easy for it to come loose from the motherboard while opening the case. Should this happen, be sure to plug it back into SCSI bus 0, not SCSI bus 1 (which is for the slower external SCSI port).
  • G3 upgrade cards unstable?, MacWeek
