, a leading zero emissions Mac upgrade and storage technology company, announced today that it has expanded its memory upgrade options for the Apple 2013 Mac Pro. After being the first to provide after market 32GB and 64GB for the new 2013 Mac Pro in December, OWC now offers additional module and kit options to provide customers with greater choice, savings, and flexibility in their memory configuration choices.
OWC Testing Reveals More Memory Trumps Matched Memory In New Mac Pro
The new 2013 Mac Pro is available with either 12GB (4GB x 3) or 16GB (4GB x 4) base memory configurations from the factory. Best memory performance is obtained with configurations of four (4) matched modules of Apple specification, including OWC 32GB (8GB x 4) and OWC 64GB (16GB x 4) kits. In real-world use, however, having more memory for demanding applications enables the greatest performance benefits and even adding an 8GB module to achieve 20GB of total system memory (4GB x 3 + 8GB x1) can have a profound impact. Actual testing of various memory configurations is available on the OWC Blog: http://blog.macsales.com/22745-mix-and-match-more-memory-faster-mac-pro-2
"For best results, sets of four matched modules should be utilized,"
said Larry O'Connor, OWC Founder and CEO. "If, however, you're on a budget, increasing the total memory will always provide the most significant performance bang for the buck. Upgrading to 32GB with our 16GB x 2 also makes it more economical to later go to 48GB or 64GB without having to replace all four modules, as is the case with an 8GB x 4 Kit."
