Having More Memory Can Incredibly Accelerate Workflow – Up To 128GB Now Available In 2013 Mac Pro

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014 | Author:

With OWC’s announcement of its new 32GB memory modules, you can now get up to 128GB of memory in your 2013 Mac Pro.

This might seem like a staggering amount of memory, and while it is certainly a lot of RAM, there are many tasks and workflows where having the full 128GB is absolutely necessary.

You may have noticed in our 32GB modules, the 1066MHz memory clock limit in the Apple 2013 Mac Pro. Current DRAM drive technology limits the 32GB modules to the 1066MHz speed, but due to enhanced CAS Performance of OWC MaxRAM 32GB Modules, actual real-world performance between 1866MHz and 1066MHz is insignificant in low memory need scenarios while offering incredibly significant performance gains in all cases where application use benefits from greater than 64GB of total memory installed.

And as you can see in the chart below from Mac Performance Guide, workflows can be substantially accelerated with more memory installed, in this case with the maximum of 128GB:

Pre-Owned iPad 2s On Special At OWC

Thursday, May 23rd, 2013 | Author:

Have we got a deal for you. OWC has got iPad 2s on special!

32GB iPad 2 WiFi + 3G models from $319 

and

64GB iPad 2 WiFi + 3G models from $355

Not only are these prices lower than Apple refurbished pricing for the same WiFi only models, but these are with Verizon or AT&T cellular capability (which can be left off for WiFi only use) as a substantially added value.

These pre-owned iPad 2s have been thoroughly inspected, tested and made ready to find new homes and businesses where they can be appreciated once more. They’re in excellent functional condition, but have already been “broken in” to save you that heartbroken feeling from doing it yourself.

Supplies on OWC’s iPad 2s are limited, so in order to take advantage of these great deals you’ll need to act fast. And as always, our Pre-Owned iPad 2s come with a 180 day warranty and a 14 day 100% money-back guarantee, and you’ll also receive an Apple original dock and AC charger.

Want some extra protection or accessories for your iPad when you get it? We’ve got that covered to. From Newer Technology Pad Protectors and GripStands, to genuine Apple Smart Covers and other great accessories, we’ve got something for everyone!

Late 2009 Core i5 & i7 iMacs OWC MaxRAM Certified To 32GB Of Memory

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013 | Author:

The OWC Test Lab technicians have been at it again. After hearing a few forum whispers of 32GB of memory working in the Late 2009 iMacs, we started our own investigation into the matter.

To be honest, we weren’t very optimistic on this rumor as, by specification, the Intel processors used in these machines list a maximum of 16GB of total memory…and our initial OWC MaxRAM Memory Certification tests didn’t pass.

We started our testing with the base Core 2 Duo (iMac10,1) model and have indeed confirmed that the Core 2 Duo models max out at 16GB of memory. When more than 16GB of memory is installed in those systems, the machine just would not complete booting. The prospect wasn’t looking too good.

But then we tested the other end of the spectrum with the 2.8 GHz Core i7 (iMac11,1) model and that is when the testing started to tell a completely different story. Article Continues…

Adding an OWC SSD to your 27″ iMac (2011) costs even less!

Thursday, April 12th, 2012 | Author:

To celebrate Tuesday’s release of the OWC DIY Kit for 2011 27” iMac models, we’re knocking and additional $15 off the price if you buy a qualifying OWC Mercury SSD at the same time.

Though the procedure is not for the faint of heart, adding a fast OWC SSD alongside the internal platter-based hard drive that’s already installed allows you to keep your data while gaining the speed benefits of an SSD when your OS is properly installed on it.

If you’re looking for further drive expansion options, though, or if you’d rather have a trained professional do it for you, you may want to check out our Turnkey Upgrade Installation Program, which has a number of extra options.
