Memory Upgrades for 2019 Mac Pro - Save Up to 65% vs Factory Costs

Memory Upgrades — How Does Your Vendor Test?

Memory modules of all sizes

I was talking with Larry O’Conner of OWC today about the need for 1333MHz memory for the new iMacs and the 3.33GHz Mac Pro and some dual processor models (up to now it has been 1066MHz). OWC will have the right 1333MHz memory as soon as new machines can be tested. Perhaps 1066MHz memory will also work in those models, but at a small speed hit, but if you’re buying one of the faster Mac Pro models, the right speed memory is the way to go.

Testing memory for all Mac models and variants

In an offhand way while we were discussing the new Mac Pro and iMac, Larry mentioned that they “have to buy one of every Mac model for testing anyway”.

I asked for clarification— he didn’t just mean one iMac and one Mac Pro, he meant one of every variant and speed: “We buy every model and with every processor option too”.

Think about the cost involved for that level of testing!

Here is a memory vendor with a robust financial committment to making sure their product peforms properly on every Mac that’s sold. Actions speak louder than words, and money talks. The OWC test lab houses a lot of these Macs, but some are distributed around to employees.

If you’re buying from another vendor, ask them if they test their memory in the particular Mac model and speed that you are buying it for.

As I currently have about 100GB of OWC memory (8GB and 4GB and 2GB modules in Mac Pros, MacMinis and MacBook Pros), I can state with confidence that OWC memory is rock solid, even when I beat up the machine with MemoryTester.
