  Quadra 700 & 900 On-Board Video Capabilities
This first article discusses a number of general Quadra video topics, the second details how to wire the video connector sense pins to access all the Quadra's supported video modes, and the third describes the memory configurations necessary to support each of the video modes at specific pixel depths.
By grounding pin 4 and pin 7 to pin 11, the Macintosh Quadras are told that an NTSC monitor is attached.
However, note that 512K of VRAM is the minimum configuration for the Quadra 700 whereas it is 1MB of VRAM for the Quadra 900 (this is the amount of VRAM soldered on the motherboard).

 VAW: Computer Collection: Quadra 700
The Quadra 700 was once at the top of Apple's line of professional computers second only to the Quadra 900.
The Quadra 700 can be used in a tower formation, with the monitor on the side, as shown in the pictures, or placed flat on its side for the monitor to sit on.
The Quadra 700 is noticeable powerful when compared to an LC III or any other low cost Mac of the early 1990s.

 Beginners' Guide to Emulating a Macintosh   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
From that year to 1994, Apple built Macintosh computers that used either the Motorola 68000, 68020, 68030, 68040 or 68LC040 (which is a 68040 processor without a floating point unit) processor running at speeds of 8MHz to 40MHz.
Macintosh computers that use one of these processors are commonly referred to as "68K" Macintosh computers.
Macintosh emulators are an attempt to "emulate" Macintosh hardware on PCs, so as to enable them to run the Macintosh operating system.

 Macintosh Quadra 900 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Macintosh Quadra 900 is a high-end personal computer introduced with the Quadra 700 in October 1991 as Apple Computer's first computers in the Quadra series using the Motorola 68040 processor.
It was discontinued in 1992, and succeeded by the very similar Quadra 950.
The Quadra 900 could be upgraded to 256 megabytes of RAM, which with its 25MHz processor made it a very useful computer for scientific or design work.

 TidBITS#202/15-Nov-93
Apple experiments with new varieties of the Macintosh this month, so we have a report on the Macintosh TV and the Quadra 610, DOS Compatible, which wins the worst name of the year award.
The Macintosh details include a 32 MHz 68030 (no word on the speed of the data bus, the albatross slung around the neck of the IIvx) with 5 MB of RAM, a SuperDrive, and a 160 MB hard disk.
Putting it all into a single case was intelligent as well, since the people for whom Macintosh TV makes sense move frequently, and it's a pain to deal with gobs of different components and cables.

 Macintosh Quadra - Definition up Erdmond.Com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
In 1991 the Quadra AV series was released, consisting of the 800-series Quadra 840av and the 600-series Quadra 660av, at 40MHz and 25MHz respectively.
The Quadra name was also used for the successors to the Centris models that briefly existed during 1993.
Centris was a "mid-range" series of systems between the Quadra on the high end and the LC on the low end, but it was later decided that there were too many product lines and the name was dropped.

By the way, the LC 3, the LC475, Quadra 605, and some of their cousins accelerate with either a (very rare) clock chip kit or with a simple (for someone experienced in soldering) resister swap.
The Quadra 605 that I show in the photo had been accelerated from 25 to 33 MHz, and since then has accelerated to 40 MHz (this required some more difficult logic board work).
There is probably no reason to hold on to a pre-Quadra Macintosh, if you can't find someone who collects them you could recycle it.

If you use Microsoft QuickBasic Compiler for the Apple Macintosh, versions 1.0 or 1.0e on the new Apple Macintosh Quadra 700 or Quadra 900, you must set the Cache Switch Control Panel to the More Compatible (Caches Disabled) option to ensure that no compatibility problems exist.
Note: To have this Control Panel installed, the Macintosh must be running Apple System 7.0.1.
The Cache Switch is only installed by the installer when doing a custom installation for a Quadra; many dealers do a default install instead.

They also both accelerate quite well - you have to desolder the main oscillator and replace it; and you get a nice speedup for your efforts.
