Upgrading a Mac can be a headache when compared to upgrading a PC, with a relatively narrow set of compatible hardware to choose from, but OCZ hopes to make things a bit simpler by offering new storage and memory products designed and validated specifically for Apple's MacBooks. The first is a Mac-specific version of its Vertex Series SSD which has already been getting the thumbs up by many reviewers for its speed and low-power operation on PCs.
Offered in four different capacities up to 250GB, the new series of SSDs boast speeds up to 240MB/s sequential read and 170MB/s sequential write and come with 64MB onboard cache. As for OCZ’s Mac memory lineup, the company will be introducing 2 and 4GB DDR2 kits working at 667MHz with 5-5-5-15 latencies, as well as 2GB modules and 4GB DDR3 kits working at 1066MHz and 7-7-7-20 latencies. The new memory modules have been tested in Apple’s Development Center for compatibility and come with a lifetime warranty. No details on pricing or availability were announced, but we’ll keep you posted.
