OWC Introduces 128GB Memory Upgrade Kit for latest Apple Mac Pro Offers Up to Double The RAM Versus Factory Maximum Offered
New ‘MaxRAM’ Certified OWC 32GB Modules enable Up to 2x More Memory and may also be mixed with OWC and Apple 16GB modules enabling even greater flexibility for individual user requirements
March 26, 2014, Woodstock, IL — Other World Computing (OWC®) https://www.macsales.com, a leading zero emissions Mac and PC upgrade and storage technology company, today officially expanded its MaxRAM™ Certified Upgrades to include up to 128GB memory upgrade kits for the latest Apple® Mac Pro 2013 6-Core, 8-Core, and 12-Core models. The new OWC 32GB modules and matched kits up to 128GB, are Fully Tested, Qualified, and MaxRAM Certified for the most demanding applications and are backed with a Money Back Guarantee and OWC’s Lifetime Advance Replacement Warranty.
OWC ‘MaxRAM’ 32GB Module Based Kits Offer Up to Double Factory Maximum RAM:
OWC 32GB Module (32GB x 1) $599
OWC 64GB Upgrade Kit (32GB x 2) $1,149.99
OWC 96GB Upgrade Kit (32GB x 3) $1,699.99
OWC 128GB Upgrade Kit (32GB x 4) $2,129.99 (128GB option not available from Apple)
OWC also has a memory rebate program for memory of all kinds from any Mac.
MPG will ascertain what the speed impact is of using 1333MHz modules, but note that when more memory is really needed, more memory trumps memory speed. And if 64GB is already ample, going to slower-speed 128GB memory is not a win. In short, 128GB is for big jobs.
- The 32GB modules run at 1333 MHz, which means lower performance than the 1866 MHz speed of the 16GB or 8GB or 4GB modules. How much this affects performance awaits testing.
- The 32GB modules can be mixed with 16GB modules, so (for example), a 96GB configuration is possible (2 X 32GB + 2 X 16GB).
- While a single 32GB module should function (mix) with the 16GB modules, OWC advises pairs of matched modules.
