Power Mac 8100/110

Send Article to a Friend

Power Mac 8100/110 -- Look for Apple to announce a new, faster Power Mac 8100 next week. The Power Mac 8100/110 uses a 110 MHz PowerPC 601 chip, has a 256K cache, and will ship in a configuration with 16 MB of RAM, a 2 GB hard drive, and 2 MB of VRAM. Apple claims a 30 percent speed increase over the 8100/80, which is not yet being discontinued. You'll be able to order the 8100/110 as of 07-Nov-94, but don't expect availability to be good for a month or so.
