iMacs Rise to 333 MHz

iMacs Rise to 333 MHz -- Apple Computer has announced new iMacs featuring 333 MHz PowerPC G3 processors. The systems are essentially unchanged from the 266 MHz models unveiled last January and share their $1,199 suggested price along with 512K of backside cache, 32 MB of RAM, a 6 GB hard disk, a 24x CD-ROM drive, 10/100Base-T Ethernet, an ATI Rage Pro Turbo graphics controller with 6 MB of video memory, and a 56 Kbps modem. Apple is touting the 333 MHz iMac as a premier gaming machine with "Pentium-toasting" performance, and the higher clock speed should help consumers' perception of iMacs as compared to PCs with even higher clock speeds. The new systems are available immediately from dealers and the online Apple store. [GD]
