Transcend Releases DDR3 RDIMM Modules to Maximize Mac Pro Memory up to 128GB
Press release date: Mar 13, 2014
“The new Mac Pro 2013 is advertised to support up to 64GB of memory, and we understand that pro users running applications that place high demands on RAM have a need to meet and most likely exceed this threshold,” said Angus Wu, Director of Research and Development at Transcend. “For this reason, we have developed and fully tested higher density modules to give users the option of raising their Mac Pro system memory to the advertised 64GB right up to 128GB.”
While the memory that comes pre-installed on the Mac Pro may be enough for common processing tasks, adding more memory is one of the easiest ways to enhance performance during 2D graphic design, HD video editing, and photo retouching. However, the Mac Pro is designed for more serious tasks including 3D graphic design, 4K video editing, and gaming. Therefore, maximizing memory ensures the system can handle powerful, RAM-intensive software applications such as Apple Final Cut Pro X and Adobe After Effects CC .
Transcend’s 16GB DDR3-1866 and 32GB DDR3-1333 RDIMMs guarantee 100% compatibility with the Apple Mac Pro 2013 model, requiring little effort to install in the easy access design and push-up release system of the Mac Pro. As a result, a simple upgrade to Transcend’s high-speed, high-density DDR3 modules can unleash the full capabilities of the Mac Pro, allow users to run multiple applications simultaneously, and future-proof the Mac Pro to deal with demanding software updates.
Comprised of top-quality DRAM chips, the 16GB and 32GB DDR3 RDIMMs offer unparalleled performance and stability to Apple's new Mac Pro workstations, and are backed by Transcend's Limited Lifetime Warranty.
