... a Blue and White with G4 ZIF "upgrade" and PowerLogix AltiVec Enabler
to a G4/400 Yikes!

I installed the PowerLogix AltiVec Enabler (beta), G3/G4 Profiler 1.2 beta, and a G4 ZIF in a Blue and White G3/400. Here's how it ran:
Conclusion: If you use AltiVec "aware" applications (like Photoshop 5.5) and you've got a grand to burn, adding a G4 upgrade to your Blue and White will thrill you.
Test Configurations & Procedures
Since the Blue & White was a Rev 1, I replaced the graphics board with an Orion RAGE 128, which is essentially the same the board shipped in the Yikes (sans DVD decorder plug). The G3 ZIF used in the upgrade was actually the ZIF from the G4/Yikes, since at press time no vendors were able to provide a G4 ZIF upgrade for testing.
