PowerMac 7200/90 Upgrades

| Upgraded Machines Index |

The graph below represent a performance comparison between different configuration enhancement made to the PowerMac 7200/90. Testing was done using MacBench 4.0 and results are from various sources including manufacturer sources. MacBench profiles popular software programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Word 6.0 and QuarkXpress among a variety of others and applies these profiles to the various subsystems being tested. See this description of what MacBench tests and how. Longer bars equals faster performance. Results represent percentage of improvement over base configuration and should be thought of as comparative rather than absolute. A zero result means that there was no data for that score.

The tester noted that when accelerated past 123Mhz the computer exhibited video "glitches" and that with the slower rated L2 cache he had at hand the computer would not boot when accelerated past 110Mhz - it is believed that "faster" cache would clear up this problem.
