has begun shipments of the new Fully Buffered DIMM (FB-DIMM) 667MHz DDR2 72 Bit ECC (error correcting) memory upgrade kits for new Mac Pro.

All OWC Memory is backed by a lifetime warranty.
OWC Mac Pro Memory Upgrades are currently priced from $559 and offered in matched sets of 1GB or 2GB modules available in kits from 2GBs and up to 16GBs total. A cash-back rebate of up to $350 per set is available for Apple factory memory trade-ins.
