Trans Intl ships new RAM

Trans International has announced it is carrying RAM modules for the 2009 Mac Pro, making them the second independent carrier to provide an alternative to Apple's factory options. They join OWC in offering 1066MHz DDR3 PC8500 72-bit memory upgrades for the new Nehalem-chip Mac Pro models introduced last week. The new RAM chips meet all the JADEC & RoHS standards and conform to Apple's thermal, mechanical and electrical design specifications, and the thermal EEPROM is installed.

Among the kits offered are an 8GB (4x2GB) set for $146, a 12 GB (6x2GB) set for $208 and a 16GB (8x2GB) option for $282. They are also promising a 4GB-per-chip, 32 GB option (8x4GB) for $4200, listed currently as "coming soon." Trans International's prices are far lower than Apple's factory RAM charges; OWC prices are also undercut in each case.
