Dual G3/G4 microATX Mainboard - Codename PEGASOS

With it's PEGASOS development bplan GmbH of germany brings PowerPC performance to the Power Users!

By using a modular system design, the mainboard can be easily upgraded to fit the needs and demands of the users. With todays standard interfaces already integrated into the PEGASOS mainboard, users will be able to easily connect standard components (such as hard drives or CD-Rom drives ) and a wide range of high-end devices such as digital video cameras to the system.

While PEGASOS itself is widely scaleable to the users needs, it is an easy task for retailers or OEMs to configure the system for their demands. By hitting the best price/performance point for the selected configuration, systems starting with one CPU (at entry level) to multiple PPC G4 based cluster computers can be build useing the same hardware.
