ROM file in TME Downloads Section
•XFX PVT44AWANG GeForce 6200 256MB 64-bit DDR (Arti / nvflash).
•There is a slower ROM for the Cube, if needed for heat.
•See The Mac Elite Wiki Downloads Section for ROM's.
Best way to flash
•Use a PC with PCI video card and empty AGP slot. Follow Nvidia Flashing Guidelines for 5/6/7 Series. Flash is simple if you follow directions. Always Backup PC ROM first.
•Currently the most popular video card for the G4 Cube and one of the most modern video cards available for it. Cubes are limited by the 2x AGP slot and PSU power so this is as far as we have been able to go. (The 6600 series did not work)
•There are faster cards for the Tower AGP Mac's, although this little card will fit them.
•This card's PCB can be blue or black.
•Has modern Core Image, less power requirements and fit's the Cube without a VRM relocation.
•Plentiful and easy to find at this time.
•Simple flash following the Wiki Flashing Guidelines.
•Not a gaming card because of it's slow 64-bit architecture.
•Caution: The XFX heatsink is not adequate cooling for the Cube's tight enclosure. An aftermarket fan is needed, like a Titan TTC-CUV3 Copper VGA Heatsink & Fan.
•Caution: This card is known to not work properly in the G4 Mirror Door (MDD) Mac.
