Since 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.
The top-of-the-line 12-core Mac Pro 2013 has arrived at OWC. And now that we have our hands on it, we’ve had the opportunity to do benchmark tests.
We’ve tested the stock unit with an Intel Xeon E5-2697 V2 12-Core 2.70GHz processor with both the stock 16GB of memory and with 64GB of OWC memory installed.

We’re nearing the end of yet another successful and exciting CES. And this year has been particularly exciting for Other World Computing.
Not only have we showed off and expanded on many of our award-winning offerings, but we’ve also unveiled some great new products as well.
And what better place than CES to give a sneak peek at some of our future items that are right around the corner!
Read below to get caught up on what’s been going on this week at the OWC booth at CES 2014. And check out the gallery below to get an up-close look at some exciting new OWC products!
After confirming that the processor in the new 2013 Mac Pro is user upgradeable, we’ve had more time for testing. We have been able to test various processors with both the stock 16GB of memory from Apple installed and with 64GB of OWC memory installed in the new Mac Pro.
We will continue to submit our findings to this listing as we are able to perform more testing with additional processors.
