    Does anyone know if there are any plans to make a dual upgrade card? I know that sonnet and powerlogix have 800MHz and 1GHz single processor upgrade cards, but I'd really like a dual cpu.

    A few months back I was checking out upgrades on OtherWorld Computing and they had such cards available. I think they were from XLR8 and were dual 400, 450, or 500 G4s.

    Of course, with the news about XLR8...what would you do?

    I went and checked XLR8.com and they did have the dual 550 for the Sawtooth (my machine). But what news are you talking about? If I got a dual, I'd want 800s at least.

    there was some talk just before the 1ghz upgrades came out that new dual upgrades were in the pipeline as well.

    i think i read this at insanely-great.com but they are a bitch to search so i dont know if you can dig up the article.

    upgrades have been stuck at 500mhz for awhile but these new 1ghz upgrades were supposed to usher in a new set of upgrades including some high powered duals. the 1 ghz have arrived but who knows what happened to the duals. hopefully it wasnt all rumors. id love to see someone frop a dual 1ghz in their cube.

    I just posted a new thread about XLR8...I guess I should have read this thread first.

    Hopefully, PowerLogix will pick up the designs and boards, though I'm not sure they're much healthier.
