The Power Macintosh 8100 (Codenames: "Cold Fusion", "Flagship"; also sold in Japan as the Power Macintosh 8115 and with bundled server software as the Apple Workgroup Server 8150) is a personal computer that is a part of Apple Computer's Power Macintosh series of Macintosh computers. It was introduced in March 1994 alongside the Power Macintosh 6100 and the Power Macintosh 7100 as the high end model of the original Power Macintosh series and a direct continuation of the prior Macintosh Quadra 800. It also shares the 800's notoriously cramped case.
The 8100 originally featured a PowerPC 601 at 80 MHz, but was upgraded to 100 MHz in November 1994, and further to 110 MHz in January 1995. In August 1995, the 8100 was discontinued in favor of the Power Macintosh 8500. The main variant of the 8100 are the 8100AV models, which came with an analog video in/out card in its Processor Direct Slot.
