Macintosh IIx

The Macintosh IIx was manufactured from 1988 to late 1990. It is an upgrade to the Macintosh II and has some key updates.

The x in the name signifies that this machine has the 030 version of the 68000 CPU series. The older Motorola 68020 CPU is replaced with the 68030 and the 68881 Floating Point Unit is replaced with the 68882. The system has an upgraded 1.44MByte SuperDrive which replaces the 800KByte in previous models. The system bus is now running at the same 16MHz speed as the CPU and the CPU got 256Bytes of L1 instruction cache.

The case is also roomier, it allows for two floppy drives and can support 6 NuBus expansion slots.
