The 2011 iMac family (released in May of that year) came in 21.5" and 27" screen sizes. All models contained four memory slots using 1333MHz DDR3 PC3-10600 SDRAM. Although Apple states that the capacity of each slot is 4GB for a total of 16GB, OWC and others have proven that the 2011 iMac can actually had 8GB in each slot for a total of 32GB of RAM.
