What's the "PowerPC upgrade" for 68k Macs?

Post by LeonardoIannelliRETRIEVES »

I went on the Wikipedia article for the Macintosh Quadra 840AV and in the infobox it said that the computer could be updated to Mac OS 9.1 if you upgrade it to a PowerPC CPU. I don't know how that's supposed to work, so does anyone have any knowledge about this?
