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.

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…
