Power Macintosh 9500/200 and 9500/180MP

Power Macintosh 9500/200 and 9500/180MP The Apple Power Macintosh 9500/180MP and 9500/200 computers are the top of the line in speed, performance, expandability, and upgradability, which is tremendous news for publishers, engineers, and multimedia professionals.

The Power Macintosh 9500/180MP computer represents a new arena for Apple; a multiprocessor system with two 180-megahertz PowerPC 604e chips, which provides simple, but powerful performance improvements for applications that take advantage of its multiprocessing capabilities. And the Power Macintosh 9500/200 is simply our fastest Apple Macintosh computer, featuring a 200-megahertz PowerPC 604e processor. With six expansion slots that support the industry-standard, high-performance Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) architecture, these two systems are also the most customizable, expandable Macintosh computers in history. PCI technology offers low-cost cards for such uses as video conferencing, video production, and high-speed networking.

Power Macintosh 9500/180MP and 9500/200 systems feature an 8x-speed CD-ROM drive for easy, fast access to CD-ROM-based materials. They run all applications written for 680x0-based Macintosh computers, as well as applications for the Mac OS that have been accelerated to take advantage of PowerPC processor technology. In addition, a number of noted developers of graphics, video, and scientific/technical applications for the Mac OS are revamping their products specifically to take advantage of the multiprocessing capabilities of the Power Macintosh 9500/180MP. These capabilities can provide significant performance improvements in processor-intensive applications such as video-editing and 3D modeling. And if you want to run MS-DOS and Windows applications, you can install a PC Compatibility Card from Apple in one of the system's many PCI slots -- and switch instantly between the computing environments.

On the communications front, these computers support both 10BASE-T and AAUI Ethernet connection.

So whether you're involved in pub-lishing, engineering, or multimedia -- or simply want the most powerful, expandable Macintosh computer ever -- one of the Power Macintosh 9500 systems is sure to meet your needs.
