A noticable improvement considering they both have the same CPU and clock
speed. Get the Quadra 650 mobo and you'll see an improvement over the C650

"Guru" is a great freeware app for quick info on mobo cpu speeds and RAM
specs. Don't know it's URL offhand, but Newertech made it, so it should be
easy to track down.

Guru says; "the Centris 650 has a 25MHz CPU, Apple says this is a 50MHz
machine, since the clock speed is doubled inside the processor chip.
However, all the I/O to the processor is done at 25MHz". This same rule
applies to all 68k Macs AFAIK. My Q650 has a 66MHz CPU and operates at

One utility app to get so you can see the processor speed while it's
running, is "Clockometer" or "Gauge Pro" both freeware and also made by
Newertech, again don't know their links OH, but they're small enough to
email if you can't locate them.
