Can a Mac Mini use 32GB DDR3 or is it maxed at 16GB?

We make the following guarantees: 1. Store Information. Contact Information. Click "About this Mac" 3. An example of a model identifier is iMac7,1. This is a very hard question to answer as it can be very specific to each user. You'll need as much RAM as you can get. However, if you are a high graphic user - playing games, or editing videos and photos you will need between 16G and 20GB.

You really should consider 32GB. We hear this question everyday.

Mac Mini Memory RAM

A lot of Mac users call us after they have upgraded to the latest OSX and there computer has slowed down. The simple answer is you need more RAM. When you upgrade your OSX, files get bigger, and the computer want to do more. When the Mac runs out of RAM it starts using the hard drive as ram.

This is called Paging. You'll start to see the spinning wheel on screen and the Mac freeze. Running your computer like this is the equivalent of driving your car in first gear all the time. You wont reach top speed, and your car will wear out fast. Install more RAM, it will fix the immediate bottle neck. For a lot of models, it is a simple procedure. We can advise on the best way to upgrade. The reason for this is simple. In most cases the higher density module was release after the iMac or MacBook Pro and Apple never retroactively updates their upgrade information.

One example of this is the MacBook Pro. However it is well known that the entire range of MacBook Pros are quite happy to utilise a maximum of 16gb of RAM Memory via 2x8gb modules. Another popular system that this applies to is the 27" iMac. Apple stated official maximum RAM Memory Utilising 4x4gb modules. Another device that is more then happy having individual 8gb modules instead. Unofficial maximum Utilising 4x8gb modules.

We have sold thousands of 8gb modules into the iMac range without issue and subsequently making many, many customers very pleased.

RAM Upgrades Beyond the Apple Published Specification | ypijinelen.ga

Customers are now free to add up to 32gb RAM Memory into these iMacs and continue to utilise them far into the future. Upgrading the memory in your computer is usually the first step to increasing it's performance. Additional memory allows you to run more applications simultaneously without the computer slowing down. It also allows you to multi-task to a much greater degree as your applications, email, web browsing, etc.

However additional RAM does not solve all the issues of a "slow" computer. If you find that it takes the latest OS a long time to load or your spreadsheets are taking minutes before they are ready to use, then you should consider swapping out your old spinning HDD for an SSD. In a working environment, waiting minutes each time a new program loads or for your computer to be ready to use, is a time consuming and costly exercise.

Added up, wait times increase to hours lost when totaled over the course of just a week.

Popular Apple community Questions and Answers. I only sell the Crucial brand of SSDs.

They are the only ones that don't have an issue with TRIM and they work straight out of the box. Crucial is a division of Micron, who supplies Apple with their flash. The Crucial SSD are the only ones that don't require a software tweak to achieve the rated speeds as they are constructed with high density chips.

The link shows you a few ways in which you can install an SSD into your Macmini and includes all the tools and accessories you might require. Cheers, Evan Answer: Evan, I assume it's not a retina screen model? If it is not a retina, then, yes, that is the correct 4gb modules. Regards Keith.
