Does such an animal exist?
Is it in a G3 or G4 flavour?

I've been reading up on the MPe Xlr8 carrier Zif card and
apparently there was a Zif spacer that could accommodate dual
processors on the carrier card.

I just haven't been able to find it anywhere,
Can anyone point me to a retailer?

Example of what I'm talking about

No dual G3s - can't be done.
Not a worthwhile endeavour on G4s these days for Zif. :cool:

So I gather by your reply that I should stick with single Zif's,
Strange that it has the ability to use it, Yet I can't find a riser to
implement it.

Oh well.

You get into diminishing returns trying to force earlier boxes to jump through too many hoops for the money or the performance gains.

Speed is a balance of factors - not just processing. :cool:

I don't really need the speed, Just the ability to have it run
under a certain percentage of CPU usage...Like say 80%.

The synth that I am using keeps crashing with the little CPU
power that I can afford at the moment. (400 mhz single CPU).

I just thought a Dual might help since the capability of having
one is available on the carrier card.
