Memory Prices Stabilize for Mac Pro

For the Mac Pro, see Why I Always Have At Least 24GB memory. Any Mac Pro user with less than 24GB should see whether there is enough memory.

Especially if you’re getting a 6-core Mac Pro, the 24GB kit is a no-brainer.

Apple garners fantastic margins on their memory prices, see my Jan 28 entry. So get the minimum from Apple, and save a bundle with OWC memory.

Many users can still do just fine with 12GB. Note that the 6-core model needs the 1333 MHz kit, but it’s only a few dollars more expensive than 1066 so just always get 1333 MHz memory for all models.

Yes, you can put 48GB into a 4/6-core Mac Pro as 3 X 16GB modules. The 8/12-core models can take 48GB as 6 X 8GB or 96GB as 6 X 16GB.
