The Daystar/XLR8 MACh Carrier G3 500 is an "upgradable upgrade" card, which can be described as a processor card with a ZIF socket. Essentially, the card plugs into the daughtercard slot and a more modern ZIF processor module is plugged into the Carrier card. The XLR8 MACh Carrier G3 500 ships with a pre-installed 500 MHz PowerPC 750 (G3) ZIF module, but the carrier can also be purchased seperately.
