From Sonnet Technologies:
This software enables Sonnet processor upgrade cards' L2 and L3 caches under Mac OS X (if they are not already enabled by the Mac ROM). It also will correctly report the size of the caches and the processor speed to the Mac OS X kernel.
What's new in this version:
Add support for L3 cache sizing for PPC G4 and Encore/ZIF processor upgrade cards.
Correctly reports cache size for PPC G4 and Encore/ZIF processor upgrade cards.
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. No problems here. Speed now reported correctly and cache reported as well.
Didn't notice a speed up of any kind, but the SOnnet processor (1.4 gHz) purrs on my G4 QuickSilver/1.25 GB Ram & Tiger 10.4.1.
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. I installed this on a Panther Server. On reboot it seems to work. Reboot again, system crash. I deinstalled the software. Everything was fine again. Reinstalled it again on the possibility it was a fluke. Again, on reboot it seems to work. Reboot again, system crash. It is clearly the Sonnet Software. I called them and they seem to not care...
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. I installed this with no problems on my B&W G3 (upgraded with Encore G4 500Mhz). after a restart, Apple system profiler for the first time showed my L2 cache as 1Mb, instead of 0k. I don't think the computer is running faster or anything, but at least it fixed that annoyance.
