Other World Computing Unveils Memory Upgrades for Mac Pro Towers

Matched Set Memory up to 16GB for Intel-based Apple “Mac Pro Quad Xeon” Towers

Aug 11, 2006 | Woodstock, IL


Other World Computing (OWC) has officially begun shipments of the new Fully Buffered DIMM (FB-DIMM) 667MHz DDR2 72 Bit ECC (error correcting) memory upgrade kits for new Apple “Mac Pro Quad Xeon”. OWC Mac Pro upgrade kits are comprised of matched pairs of FB-DIMM modules which comply with Apple’s more robust specifications that exceed standard JEDEC and include the use of Apple Qualified Head Spreaders. All OWC Memory is backed by OWC’s Lifetime Advance Replacement Warranty.

“The new Mac Pro offers unprecedented performance in utilizing the latest processor and memory technology available and that performance can be further enhanced with OWC Memory modules,” said Larry O’Connor, CEO ofOther World Computing. “OWC is pleased to offer memory that meets Apple’s more robust thermal requirements through the use of Apple Qualified Heat Spreaders. According to Apple, using standard off-the-shelf FB-DIMMs, which may lack a sufficient heat sink, could result in the need for fans within the Mac Pro to run faster and louder to compensate for less efficient heat exchange or, to prevent overheating, even cause the Mac Pro to reduce memory performance.”

OWC Mac Pro Memory Upgrades are currently priced from $559 and offered in matched sets comprised of 1GB or 2GB modules available in kits from 2GBs and up to 16GBs total. A cash-back rebate of up to $350 per set is available from OWC for the trade-in of Apple factory memory.

The Intel-based Mac Pro Quad Xeon requires memory be installed in Matched Sets, as is offered by OWC.
