PCI Power Macintosh

By: Firoj Khan

The "Power Mac" brand name was used for Apple's high-end tower style computers, targeted primarily at businesses and creative professionals, in differentiation to their more compact "iMac" line (intended for home use) and the "eMac" line (for the education markets). They were usually equipped with Apple's newest technologies, and commanded the highest prices among Apple desktop models.

A good place for start addressing PCI performance on power Macintosh CPUs is the PCI standard itself.

Other past Macintosh lines that have used PowerPC processors include the Macintosh Performa, iMac, iBook, and PowerBook 5300 and later models. Power Macintosh, or Power Mac, is a line of Apple Macintosh workstation-class personal computers based on various models of PowerPC.

The first models were the Power Macintosh 6100, 7100, and 8100, which offered speeds ranging from 60 to 110 MHz. The initial implementation of the PCI bus on Power Macintosh computers supports up to four peer PCI bridge connections to the main processor bus.

The Power Mac G4 models including the Power Mac G4 (AGP Graphics), Power Mac G4 (PCI Graphics), the Power Mac G4 (Gigabit Ethernet), and the Power Mac G4 (Digital Audio).

The Intel-based successor of the Power Macintosh is named the Mac Pro, in line with the renaming of their professional notebooks from PowerBook to MacBook Pro.
