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:
Other World Computing today officially expanded its MaxRAM Certified Upgrades to include up to 128GB memory upgrade kits for the latest AppleMac Pro 2013 6-Core, 8-Core, and 12-Core models.

OWC ‘MaxRAM’ 32GB Module Based Kits Offer Up to Double Factory Maximum RAM:
If you love Macs, it’s almost impossible to look at the 2013 Mac Pro without dropping your jaw, drooling a little, and thinking, “Want. Want so badly.” And that’s understandable. It’s a powerful machine with a sleek new design that’s perfect for professionals across the creative spectrum.
But the thing is, it’s not like creative professionals just started using Mac Pros in 2013. And if you dropped top dollar on a Mac Pro anytime in the past few years, the idea of investing several thousand more dollars in the latest model might not seem that attractive to you. On the other hand, nobody wants to be left behind. It’s competitive enough out there on a level playing field.
That’s where OWC comes in. If you make your living in graphic design, video editing, or any other visual medium, you’re going to want to keep reading. We’ll show you how you can bring your 2009-2012 Mac Pro up to par with many GPU based tasks without breaking the bank.
OWC’s benchmark testing has revealed that a 2009-2012 Mac Pro can be upgraded to perform on par with the 2013 Mac Pro in many GPU based tasks and in some cases, even outperform it. Lets take a look at some of the options OWC has to help make your older Mac Pro the powerful machine you need to express your creativity. Article Continues…
