Transcend has released new memory modules for Apple's Mac Pro computers.
Transcend’s 2GB FB-DIMM gives Mac Pro users the option to fully populate all eight slots for a total of capacity of 16GB. With the Mac Pro’s efficient memory architecture that supports four simultaneous memory channels, Transcend’s 800MHz frequency FB-DIMM delivers amazing bandwidth, allowing transfer rates up to 25GB per second. The 2GB DDR2-800 FB-DIMM for Mac Pro is also equipped with a high-performance Advanced Memory Buffer (AMB) and Error Correction Code (ECC), which monitors the data that gets transferred in and out of memory and performs real-time correction of any errors found. This feature is essential for performing mission-critical or compute-intensive tasks on a Mac Pro workstation, as it can greatly reduce the risk of computational errors, while at the same time increase overall system stability.

Transcend’s 2GB DDR2-800 FB-DIMM module for Apple Mac Pro uses robust eight-layer PCBs that meet JEDEC standards. Their additional speed and bandwidth along with generous 2GB capacity meet the rigorous requirements of hi-end computing. The 240-pin FB-DIMM is made of 18 high-quality 70 nm 128Mx8 DDR2 DRAM chips. Each chip is selected with the strictest quality and performance standards and is manufactured using small Fine-Pitch Ball Grid Array (FBGA) packages to assure better thermal dissipation, electrical efficiency and reliable computing quality. Thanks to the included high-quality heat sinks equipped with cooling fins and highly conductive thermal compound, Transcend’s 2GB DDR2-800 FB-DIMM for Apple Mac Pro also offers superior heat diffusion characteristics which greatly increases reliability and lowers system temperatures.


Features:
  • Specially engineered for Apple Mac Pro 8-core systems
  • High performance Advanced Memory Buffer (AMB) allows simultaneous reads and writes
  • Built-in ECC(Error-Correction Code)ensures efficient data transfer
  • Premium multi-fin heat sinks with high-conductivity thermal compound for extra cooling efficiency
  • 100% tested for performance and reliability
  • Worldwide lifetime warranty
