CPU upgrade manufacturer PowerLogix has announced their BlueChip Pismo G4 500MHz processor upgrade for FireWire-equipped PowerBook G3s (a.k.a. “Pismo.”)

The BlueChip Pismo requires that the original processor card have its G3 processor removed, and replaced with the G4-7410. This is due to the proprietary nature of the Pismo processor card.

Customers who wish to have their laptop upgraded with the BlueChip Pismo send the laptop to PowerLogix. The original processor card is verified and tested prior to the chip swap, and retested prior to shipment back to the customer. Turnaround time is guaranteed to be five business days or less for domestic customers.

The BlueChip Pismo upgrade is compatible with all software and hardware (including Mac OS X) according to the company as is available for an introductory price of $299 through July. After that the BlueChip Pismo 500 will cost US$329. The price includes domestic FedEx shipping in both directions.


Newer Technology is now also offering a G4 upgrade for Pismo owners. The NuPowr G4 Pismo upgrade replaces the 400MHz or 500MHz processor in the PowerBook G3 “Pismo” series with a G4 processor running at 500MHz for US$299.
