Having More Memory Can Incredibly Accelerate Workflow – Up To 128GB Now Available In 2013 Mac Pro

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014 | Author:

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:
