Transcend 32GB RAM modules bump Mac Pro max to 128GB

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, PC / Laptop

Transcend 32gb RAM modules

The new Mac Pro is advertised by Apple to support up to 64GB of RAM. That's a staggering amount in our books, but some power users have balked at the limit, wishing for the option to stuff their Mac Pro with even more RAM. Well, it turns out that the limit was likely due to higher capacity DIMMs not being available--but Transcend has changed that. The company has released 32GB RAM modules that are compatible with the new Mac Pro, which supports four sticks. That'll bring your RAM to 128GB.

"The new Mac Pro 2013 is advertised to support up to 64GB of memory, and we understand that pro users running applications that place high demands on RAM have a need to meet and most likely exceed this threshold," said Transcend's Director of Research and Development Angus Wu. "For this reason, we have developed and fully tested higher density modules to give users the option of raising their Mac Pro system memory to the advertised 64GB right up to 128GB."

Transcend guarantees 100% compatibility with the 2013 Mac Pro, alongside a lifetime warranty. If you want the 64GB kit, that costs $980, while the 128GB RAM kit goes for a whopping $2480.

If you're looking to up the RAM in your Mac Pro, be sure to check out our video tutorial: How to Upgrade your Mac Pro (2013) RAM - we get our RAM from OWC, ourselves.

Transcend JetFlash V70 anti-shock USB drive has rubberized coating

Posted by Mark Rollins Categories: Storage, USB

Transcend JetFlash V70

There is never a shortage of flash drives on the market, and what makes Transcend’s JetFlash V70 different is its rubber coating.  It is capable of surviving some good drops, which is important when you are lugging several of these things around.  And don’t get me started on the importance of the tethered cap holder. 

The color of the drive tells you much memory each of them have.  The purple is 4 GB, the orange is 8 GB, and the red is 16 GB.  No word on the price, though.

Amazon to Change Packaging

Trancend Memory CardLet’s file this one under, “It’s about time.” Amazon is now working with retailers to help eliminate those pre-boxes and plastic sealing that is almost impossible to get open without way too much work. Instead, items will be packed in plain brown cardboard boxes and envelopes. Companies to step up to the plate first are Microsoft, Fisher-Price, Mattel, and Transcend. We figure that will not only make Amazon greener, but should certainly keep shipping costs lower. Let’s hope that they pass some of the savings on to us.

Transcend’s JetFlash 16GB: One Huge Thumbdrive!

Posted by Lolita Beckwith Categories: Accessories, USB, Storage

JetFlash 16BWith all our digital storage needs these days, the thumb drive industry is growing by leaps and bounds. But the Mother of All Thumb Drives seems to be Transcend’s mammoth JetFlash 16GB. So next time you need to store 4,000 MP3s, 150,000 photos, or over a million Word documents (we hate when that happens!) JetFlash will do the job with ease. In addition, JetFlash can actually be compressed for more space(!), and can be assigned a password—which we highly suggest. Available for $304 USD.
