Love the new Mac Pro but concerned that it's not dishing out quite enough power? Transcend has some good news for you. As of today, the memory manufacturer has announced the release of a new set of high-density DDR3 RDIMM RAM modules that bump up the Mac Pro's memory to an impressive 128GB.
That's actually double what Apple claims is the maximum amount of supportable memory on the Apple Store. The Mac Pro is already powerful without the Transcend's memory, of course, but the new 32GB components cater to users who need their machines performing at top speeds. To reach the 64GB advertised by Apple, you need to use four 16GB sticks of RAM.
"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, Transcend's director of research and development . "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."
Transcend says that its 16GB DDR3-1866 and 32GB DDR3-1333 RDIMM are both 100 percent compatible with Apple's new Mac Pro, and if you're not happy with them, the company even offers a lifetime warranty for both products. Here's the catch--there's currently no word on the price, but it'll likely be a doozy.
