Mac Pro memory upgrades

Other World Computing (OWC) today began offering Apple-qualified memory upgrade modules for the new 8-core Mac Pro system that Apple launched yesterday. OWC also announced lower pricing for memory on the existing Mac Pro quad Xeon models, with FB-DIMM 667MHz DDR2 72-bit ECC fully-buffered memory upgrade modules available in matched sets of 512MB, 1GB, and 2GB for up to 16GB of total memory. OWC Memory Upgrade Kits provide fully-tested memory modules that meet or exceed all Apple specifications, and utilize true Apple-qualified heat spreaders. Each kit is backed by OWC's lifetime advance replacement warranty, and the company offers a cash-back rebate of up to $145 per set of Apple factory memory. OWC's memory upgrades for the 8-core Mac Pro come in 1GB ($159.75 per GB), 2GB ($118.75 per GB), and 4GB ($128.06 per GB) capacities.

    The memory is the same for the 4 core and 8 core Mac Pro systems (the mother board is the same)... nothing special to see here other then an opportunity to issue a press release.

    "huh?" this...

    They're just updating their pricing to coincide with the release of the new MacPros. Otherwise, you are correct.
