Why Wait For The New Mac Pro?

Friday, August 30th, 2013 | Author:

Create a lightning-fast workhorse with OWC today!

We’re excited about the impending release of the newly announced 2013 Mac Pro, but your current Mac Pro may have more potential under the hood than you thought. Many people simply don’t take advantage of the upgradeability of their Mac Pro, and OWC makes upgrading easy with free install videos and U.S.-based technical support.

When you run low on memory, everything moves slower than it should. Adding OWC memory provides night-and-day performance gains up to 64GB in the oldest Mac Pro and up to 128GB in the latest. Our most popular 16GB and 32GB memory upgrade kits are available from as low as $149.00, making that massive performance boost darned affordable.

The current Mac Pro has an advantage over the 2013 Mac Pro in that it can be internally upgraded with up to 16.0TB of drive storage capacity, using 4.0TB hard drives from OWC. You can also upgrade to an OWC Accelsior SSD with up to 2.0TB of storage and 600MB/s for the ultimate performance speed boost.

Need more graphics power? Upgrade your graphics card with several new models recently released. OWC eliminates compatibility guesswork by stocking video cards designed specifically for Mac Pro. OWC never stocks “hack cards.” When you buy a video card from OWC, you can rest easy knowing it will work with your Mac Pro.

Need USB 3.0, eSATA, SAS or more? The expansion slots in your Mac Pro are there for a reason, and you can upgrade with any of the great Mac-friendly PCIe expansion cards offered by OWC.

Accelsior_E2 Makes Mac Pro Better Than New

Wednesday, April 24th, 2013 | Author:

During Apple’s second quarter earnings conference call Tuesday, CEO Tim Cook teased us with a promise of “new product categories” that the company will be releasing this fall and throughout 2014.

While that’s certainly exciting news, many are still left wondering whether some of Apple’s current products are being put on the backburner. One example that quickly comes to mind is the Mac Pro. It’s been almost three years since the company’s last true update to the Mac Pro.

While we can only dream about what new products Apple has up its sleeve (an iWatch or iTV, anyone?), those who are focused on the Mac Pro still have options to get elite performance even if Apple doesn’t roll out an update until the Fall or even later. Article Continues…
