Apple on Tuesday unveiled new iMac models that support up to 64GB RAM. Apple charges high prices for RAM upgrades, though, but luckily, there are do-it-yourself options for replacing an iMac's memory after purchase.
Other World Computing this week announced memory upgrade kits designed for the 2019 27-inch 5K iMacs, which let you upgrade your available RAM more affordably.
There are three RAM kits available depending on your needs:
- 16GB Kit (8 GB x 2) OWC2666DDR4S16P - $118.88
- 32GB Kit (16GB x 2) OWC2666DDR4S32P - $229.88
- 64GB Kit (16GB x 4) OWC2666DDR4S64S - $449.99
OWC's RAM kits let you save 40 to 60 percent over Apple's upgrade pricing, and there is an option to trade in the existing RAM in your machine to get a discount.
OWC says that it is testing 128GB of memory in the 27-inch iMac models and will confirm whether or not the machine supports it in the near future. So far, the 27-inch iMac has been able to see 128GB of memory, which seems promising for even further RAM upgrades. OWC offers a lifetime limited warranty for its memory kits, along with a 30 day money back guarantee.
