WOODSTOCK, IL – March 19, 2019OWC®, a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company announced today that they are now offering memory upgrades for the just announced 2019 27-inch iMac 5K. OWC high-performing memory kits enable customers to boost performance levels and run more apps, work with larger files, speed up render times, and manipulate larger data sets.

These upgrades allow iMac owners to maximize their technology investment with up to 64GB of memory for the highest performance level and giant savings versus Apple factory installation. In addition to greater speeds, new iMac owners can save up to 62% on memory upgrades plus they can even experience greater savings through OWC's Memory trade-in rebate program.

Wyatt Cagle, Digital Imaging Technician (DIT) for the upcoming feature film "Playing God" had this to say regarding the OWC ThunderBlade's crucial role in production: "The [two] ThunderBlades are our transfer drives because they're so fast. Within minutes I've got everything logged and ready for the editor. We're shooting stuff in the morning, the editor is editing it in the afternoon, and the director is seeing something sometimes that night. Without that speed, without the ThunderBlades, we couldn't do that."
