    I have an original G4, AGP Graphics model that came with a 450mgz processor.

    I know all about the 3rd party processor upgrades, but what I'd like to know is whats the fastest APPLE processor board I can install in that machine?

    Will it take a 533 mgz G4 chip/board?

    Many thanks for your help.

    That model topped out at 500MHz. Anything beyond that speed is a crap shoot. A 533 MIGHT work if the firmware can recognize it.

    Complete Mac history, follow the above link.
