Benchmark Testing Reveals Upgrades Boost Performance Up To 51%

Independent memory benchmark testing by OWC engineers on a wide variety of Mac computers has consistently demonstrated the dramatic system performance gains that installing more memory provides. In a battery of tests conducted with 2009 Mac Pro models that utilized as much as 90% of installed memory, OWC engineers found that they could improve even "the fastest Mac ever" performance by up to 51% with the addition of an OWC Memory Upgrade Kit. OWC Memory Upgrade performance gains are even more apparent when using memory intensive applications, such as audio/video, photo, and 3D modeling simultaneously with other regularly used workflow processes, like downloading a large file, replying to an email, and having several web browsers open.
