DayStar Turbo 040 Processor Upgrade

If you want to get a real jump on performance, but you don’t want to have to buy new PowerPC ready applications, then the Turbo 040 is for you. Unlike a Power Macintosh, DayStar’s Turbo 040 radically accelerates all your current software and doesn’t require the purchase of new PowerPC versions of your applications. And when all your software is PowerPC ready, you have the option of upgrading to DayStar’s PowerPC products. DayStar always protects your investment.

DayStar Tubro 040 for Mac IIciDayStar’s Turbo 040 is a “Five Diamond” winner from MacWeek magazine, and it was nominated by MacUser Magazine as an Editor’s Choice Finalist. With its plug-and-play installation, and excellent compatibility you can easily see why the reviewers at MacWeek said, “The upgrade was painless, and performance will make users blink.”

The Turbo 040 includes a built-in 128K cache that allows the card to run a full speed within your existing Macintosh. It is available in models with or without a math chip -both provide Quadra 800 or better performance at a fraction of the cost of a new machine.
