A couple of weeks ago we reported that new modules from Transcend can improve the memory capacity of the new Mac Pros by up to 128 GB of RAM, which is double Apple's stated maximum of 64 GB. At the time, we didn't have a price, but Transcend later revealed that such power would cost you around $2,500. Alternative models are now available, reports MacRumors, but they'll still cost a similar amount of cash.
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.
It's a very special rumor-laden Labor Day version of the hot news of the week. Did you hear Apple has a new iPhone in production? Well, of course you did. But what else did you hear about it? Anything? Anything at all? Well, we just so happen to have some choice iPhone 5S/C rumors (with video!) and a few other things in the pipeline. So if you aren't already sitting outside grilling for the weekend, have at the week's top news and innuendo.
When you're young, occasionally forgetting things is more of an inconvenience than anything. But as you get older and it happens more often, it can become disconcerting. What starts as misplacing your keys becomes an inability to recall names or even access your own memories. But we can work against the wear and tear that time causes our brain, and if you have an iOS device, these eight apps will help you improve your memory and cognitive functions. Sharpening your memory only serves to benefit you in both the short and long term, and you never know which forgotten thought or location of a long-lost item may suddenly back pop into your head.
Much of the attention circling the new MacBook Air has focused on Intel's new Haswell processors and the considerable improvements to battery life they provide, but it's possible that the most impressive improvement is the PCIe-based flash storage in each unit. Indeed, it may be even more impressive that we originally thought, and that means great things for the new Mac Pros that will be housing them as well. According to a report by Anandtech released this morning, read/write speeds are approaching 800 mb/s on the new 13" MacBook Air.
Get some Air! MacBook Air, that is. This week we've got a great selection of Apple's lighter than light laptop collection at great refurb prices, plus we've got all kinds of cases and a few speaker treats that are sure to delight.
Apple rarely plays the specs game, particularly when it comes to its iOS devices. Sure, you’ll get a name for the processor and they’ll boast about pixels when it suits them, but talk about RAM or clock speed and there’s radio silence. However, according to one source, the iPad’s dirty little secret is its ever-increasing RAM usage.
Those ugly patent battles appear to be taking a toll on another front, according to a new report claiming that Apple is shifting its memory purchases away from longtime favorite (and current patent litigation foe) Samsung, who currently holds a 40 percent share of the global DRAM market -- but maybe not for long.
It goes without saying that the more memory your Mac has access to, the smoother it will run. This is particularly true in the age of 64-bit operating systems like OS X Lion and apps that can take advantage of all available RAM you can throw at it. But do you know where to find the best deals on memory -- and does it make sense to pay more?
Got one of those newfangled Mac Pros recently? Those things pack a ton of power, and they've got plenty of slots for extra RAM. Need to give your powerful rig a little boost in memory so that your 64-bit applications move a little faster? Plop in another pair of memory sticks and bump it up to 8GB. We'll show you how.
