Use Your FireWire Gear With A New Mac

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014 | Author:

firewire-whipSince the introduction of Thunderbolt as a port in 2011 Macs, Apple has slowly phased out its previous high-speed connection, FireWire. Now, with the release of the Late 2013 Mac Pro, only one shipping Mac model – the Mac mini – still has this connection.

While Thunderbolt promises even faster throughput and simplified connectivity, the loss of the FireWire port may leave the many users who upgrade their Mac – but still have useful legacy FireWire external hard drives and other peripherals – out in the cold. Luckily, OWC has the solutions you need to maximize your FireWire investment.

The Apple Thunderbolt to FireWire Adapter enables you to easily connect up to 63 externally powered FireWire 800 devices to your Thunderbolt port-equipped computer. The FireWire 800 port even provides up to 7W of power for your bus-powered external hard drive solution needs.

Your Trusty Mac Pro Vs. A 2013 iMac: Why Upgrade When You Already Have the Best?

Friday, October 18th, 2013 | Author:

prod_applemacpro2010Wouldn’t it be nice if we lived in a world where your 2009 or later Mac Pro could compete with, or even outperform the brand new, fancy-shmancy 2013 iMac when it comes to graphics?

Guess what? We do! In fact, with minimal tweaking, your older Mac Pro can be a dream machine for gamers and creative professionals who depend on the highest quality graphics to do what they do. That may sound crazy, but prepare for a big surprise when you check out the comparative benchmarks by rob-ART morgan over at Bare Feats.

It’s amazing, but an older Mac Pro can outperform later versions of the iMac in almost every significant category. One look at the numbers shows you that a three-year-old Mac Pro with the desktop version of the GTX blows the iMacs with GTX 680MX and 780M GPU’s out of the water.
