Looks like 32GB is the max ram for the Retina iMac
The Haswell based i7 4790k only supports a max of 32GB of RAM period. It has nothing to do with the Retina iMac itelf.
Well, how was that a surprise?
You could look the processor up from Intel. They only support 32GB as per the specifications.
What were you going to run that would need more RAM?
Well, I am not sure how this is news, or that it needed to be confirmed, but thank you.
Please start a petition on facebook to get Intel to change this, if it's a problem for you.
Depending on what your do, Photoshop can actually benefit greatly from more than 32GB of RAM.
Yeah, but what does that have to do with the Intel chip only able to handle 32GB?
Many things can benefit from more than 32 GBs of RAM.
Took the words out of my mouth.
Nothing at all. Though I did answer the second rediculous question that should never have been asked. Honestly, this thread should be closed.
For what applications do you need 32 GB ram? I use photoshop, lightroom, and many of the other Adobe software, but I rarely use over 10 GB...
I must be missing something; I've used PS for the best part of twenty years as a design professional and I've never seen the need to have more than 16GB RAM.
Ok so a new question leading on from my original question; what do you want to do in PS that needs more than 32GB RAM?
Cubase for instance. Loading multiple instances of high quality multi-samples of symphonic instruments recorded at various velocities, dynamics and playing techniques can eat 32 GB for cake.
See OP's 2 post history and join date of today. Thread should be shut down and user should be banned.
Hey, I don't know if you know this, but the new 27" iMac has a 5K display! Just letting you know this as its breaking news. Just sayin'.
Thank you for this information. I am surprised that it's not 8K though.
What kind of mobile gfx exists to power 8k?
This thread went from fail to WIN!
Oh no how ever will we survive!!!
Seriously, if you're one of the .0000000001% of people who need 64GB of RAM just get a Mac Pro.
Okay internet police.
