OWC offers memory upgrades for newly launched iMacs

Yesterday Apple announced updated iMac models that now come with 5K displays in the case of the 27-inch models and 4K monitors in the case of the 21.5-inch versions of this computer. Along with the visual upgrade Apple has also improved the hardware inside allowing the new iMacs to house up to 32 GB of RAM.

This amount of RAM, however, may not be sufficient for some iMac users and that’s why Other World Computing (OWC) has announced new memory upgrade kits for the just announced Apple iMac computers. These upgrade kits will allow users to install 64 GB of DDR3 memory in the new Apple computers, which will be enough memory for all current applications and will ensure smooth operation for many years to come.

The new OWC memory runs at 1866 MHz only and belongs to the DDR3 memory standard. Available in kits of 4 GB and 8 GB memory modules the new OWC memory is available only in the popular SO-DIMM form factor. A single 4 GB memory module costs USD 36.99, while one 8 GB DDR3-1866 memory module sells for USD 69.99. A kit of two 4 GB modules can be yours for USD 68, which OWC claims is a saving of 66 per cent compared to Apple-sold memory.

OWC also sells a 12 GB (8 GB + 4 GB) kit of the same memory for USD 99 and the final two kits of 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) and 32 GB (4 x 8 GB) cost USD 134 and USD 264, respectively, bringing savings of 33 per cent and 56 per cent lower costs when compared to Apple memory.

There’s no information on the warranty of the new memory but we suspect it comes with lifetime warranty.
