The Newer MAXpowr G3 266 (NuBus) features a 240-266 MHz PowerPC 750 (G3) processor (depending on system bus speed) with 512k of backside cache. There are two versions of this card, one version for the Power Mac 6100 (pictured) and another version for the Power Mac 7100 and 8100. Unlike the first version, this card detects the system bus speed and sets itself, similar to Sonnet's series of G3-based PDS cards.
