OWC Expands Memory Upgrade Options for Mac Pro 2013

Tuesday, February 11th, 2014 | Author:

OWC1866D3R9M64_heroOther World Computing announced today that it has expanded its memory upgrade options for the Apple 2013 Mac Pro. After being the first to provide after market 32GB and 64GB for the new 2013 Mac Pro in December, OWC now offers additional module and kit options to provide customers with greater choice, savings, and flexibility in their memory configuration choices.

OWC Testing Reveals More Memory Trumps Matched Memory In New Mac Pro

The new 2013 Mac Pro is available with either 12GB (4GB x 3) or 16GB (4GB x 4) base memory configurations from the factory. Best memory performance is obtained with configurations of four (4) matched modules of Apple specification, including OWC 32GB (8GB x 4) and OWC 64GB (16GB x 4) kits. In real-world use, however, having more memory for demanding applications enables the greatest performance benefits and even adding an 8GB module to achieve 20GB of total system memory (4GB x 3 + 8GB x1) can have a profound impact. Actual testing of various memory configurations is available on the OWC Blog: blog.macsales.com/22745-mix-and-match-more-memory-faster-mac-pro-2 Article Continues…

Mix And Match: More Memory = Faster Mac Pro

Monday, February 10th, 2014 | Author:

Mac Pro Late 2013 MemoryWhen using a new Mac Pro 2013, installing four matched memory modules will get you optimal performance. This allows the system to use quad-channel addressing, which is the most effective mode of operation.

That being said, in the real world – as with the 2009-2012 model Mac Pros which supported up to triple-channel addressing and even with the 2006-2008 models that REQUIRED matched pairs – more memory trumps multi-channel addressing where you have an application or applications running that make use of that memory.

Here is an example of a “memory hungry” situation. We took a really large image file, in this case 40,000 pixels wide and 56GB in total size, and ran some scripted operations in Adobe Photoshop. Article Continues…

Happy 30th Birthday, Macintosh!

Friday, January 24th, 2014 | Author:

master_mac30The Mac officially turns 30 today, and Apple is celebrating in style with great home page imagery and cool Timeline and Your First Mac sections of the website. Of course, there’s also an awesome Apple video that celebrates the 30th birthday event.

Obviously, we’re huge “Mac heads” here at OWC, and we couldn’t be happier that the Mac has hit this major milestone. Many of us, and our customers, lived during the revolution and remember its launch. While some of us, and those newer to Mac, were born after 1984 and recognize that without the Mac, much of what we do today in computing would be vastly different. Just imagine if point and click didn’t exist, or if the Palm Treo was still the best “smartphone” around (iOS comes from OS X). It really is difficult to fathom. Article Continues…
