    Would 1333 MHz RAM work in the new 2012 MBP 15"? And if so would it make a big difference compared to 1600 MHz RAM?

    I'm not pushing bleeding edge performance or play games but my apps do use a lot of RAM.

    Why DDR3-1333 ? DDR3-1600 cost the same price. Performance drop is low.

    Are you saying that it works and that the difference in performance is negligible?

    Where I live (in Sweden) there's a price difference (~40$ for 16 GB).

    yes it will. the 3rd-gen intel core processors support both 1333/1600, but 1066 is excluded.

    Thank you. That gave me a clue for search and I also found this info from Intel.

    It seems big. Sweden looks to have higher price than France/Germany/Belgium. :eek:
    I was looking for 16 GB DDR3-1600 CL10 from Corsair (about 120 €). DDR3-1333 CL9 cost ~110 €. Did you have Amazon in Sweden ?

    What do you need 16gb's for? I found 8gb for 499 or 1198 for 16gb. Thats a pretty good price :)

    I only see a 28 dollar (200kr) difference when using prisjakt.nu. For that price difference, I'd go with the 1600s.
