The new 2019 Mac Pro (that’s Mac Pro, not iMac Pro) is sold by Apple with a maximum of 768GB memory for the 8/12/16 core CPUs, but OWC raises that to up to 1TB and a big cost savings. OWC also offers up to up to 1.5TB for the 24/28 core CPUs. See 2019 Mac Pro: Tips for Upgrading Memory.
But what about the 2017 iMac Pro, long limited to 256GB max memory?
A slick update for the iMac Pro, previously limited to 256GB memory with its 4 slots.
OWC can now upgrade your iMac Pro to 512GB memory, made possible by higher density chips now available, using 4 X 128GB LRDIMM modules.
That’s a lot of memory!
MPG strongly recommends having memory for the iMac Pro professionally installed by OWC via the iMac Pro memory + pro install option.
