I have an iMac 27", Mid 2010 (11,3 model), "Core i7" 2.93 GHz. 4*2GB installed RAM..Plan to upgrade. Any thoughts, experience if 4 * 8 GB would work if upgraded to or is 16GB with 4*4GB max I can reach? Thank you

  • Mactracker app is useful for this. – Solar Mike May 11 '19 at 7:14

According to everymac.com, the answer is a maximum of 4x8GB=32GB.

Crucial will sell you 2x8GB for $103.99.

OWC will sell you 1x8GB for $39.99 or 4x8GB for $159.99.

  • it is i7. And below is sytem report of memory.. So I assume it can go up to 32GB... Any comment?

  • So, if you check Mactracker, then 32GB, but Apple says a maximum of 16GB - always Apple gives a lower limit. – Solar Mike May 11 '19 at 12:12
  • Sometimes the larger memory does not exist at the time computer is manufactured. When a larger size becomes available Apple does not update its documentation. Apple has solved this problem by not letting you add memory in many of the latest models. – David Anderson May 11 '19 at 12:26
