Performance Gains for Memory Hungry Applications
The best memory performance is observed with sets of four (4) matched modules of Apple specification RAM installed, however, OWC’s in-house performance testing has shown a negligible difference in real-world performance when using other configurations. Additional memory is the most cost effective way to increase performance. And, for applications needing more than Apple’s current factory maximum of 64GB of total memory, users will see improved performance gains with more memory provided by OWC 32GB module options.
OWC MaxRAM® Memory Upgrades Offer Up to Double the Factory Maximum RAM “Mac users want choices, and the new OWC 32GB modules provide that,” said Larry O’Connor, OWC Founder and CEO. “Upgrading with our 32GB modules makes future upgrades to 96GB or 128GB more economical because it eliminates the need to replace modules. And with our Apple factory/OWC RAM trade-in program, we’ll give you credit for your original 4GB, 8GB and 16GB modules to save you even more money.”
More Savings Available with OWC Rebate Program
After upgrading with an OWC Apple Mac Pro 2013 Memory Option, customers can save even more with OWC’s Trade-in Rebate for the original factory memory. Receive up to $500 for Apple factory or OWC modules removed from any Mac Pro 2013 model. For complete details, see:
