Other World Computing announced today through its in-house MaxRAM testing lab its high performance OWC PC3-10600 DDR3 1333MHz 32GB Memory Kit for 2011 iMac and 2010 27″ iMac models now provides 32GB — twice the factory maximum 16GB installed memory — with a 40 percent lower cost. OWC Memory Upgrades are fully tested and certified to meet, if not surpass, all Apple memory design and compatibility specifications and come backed by a Lifetime Replacement Warranty and free, step-by-step installation videos.
More Memory Makes iMac Workstation Ready
In the past, one of the main limiting factors to iMacs being considered a capable workstation used to be memory. Now, with the horsepower of up to a 3.4GHz Quad-Core i7 processor and the benchmark proven ability of OWC’s MaxRAM upgrades up to 32GB, current iMacs can deliver serious graphics production, A/V editing, and other professional use performance rivaling that of a Mac Pro for far less cost.

“OWC MaxRAM upgrades take all-in-one desktops to a new workstation class level,” said Larry O’Connor, Founder and CEO, Other World Computing. “Today’s iMacs offer tremendous processer capability, but may fall short for some requirements when limited to only 16GB of RAM. Now, a professional user who doesn’t need all the capabilities of a Mac Pro, but does require memory up to 32GB, may find the iMac can meet those needs and at a significant cost savings vs. a Mac Pro.”
