I don't understand the explaination but here it is:<br>2GB X 4 is best due to the combination of benefits of performance, power consumption, thermal profile.<br>The performance is ideal because groupings of four FB-DIMM allow 256 Bit memory access<br>The power consumption is less because 4 FB-DIMM use 1/2 the power of 8<br>The thermal profile is better because fewer FB-DIMM generate less heat and allow more airflow.<br><br>This may help clear that up... <br><br>
That was interesting, thank you.<br>I've bought memory 4pcs at 2GB each. <br>The Mac Pro comes with 2 pcs of memory at 1GB each.<br>I wonder if I am better off keeping those 2 pcs of memory or selling them?<br><br><br>
If you bought from OWC they will give you $110.00 for the (2) 1 giggers... then you can turn around and buy more 2 giggers or pocket the money.<br>Or leave them in there.<br>http://eshop.macsales.com/money-back-rebate/mac-pro-xeon-memory#macpro<br><br><br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by NucleusG4 on 01/13/08 10:14 AM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
