Quoted from OCZ PC3-10666 Gold Kit Reviews:Check out these quotes from OCZ PC3-10666 Gold Kit reviews & previews
"The Gold series is designed for gamers, while the Platinum series is designed for enthusiasts. A similar market because both groups demand high performance. However enthusiasts typically like to overclock, and push their equipment harder than gamers do. Comparing an enthusiast grade DDR2 kit to a gamer grade DDR3 kit would appear to be an unfair comparison, especially since the DDR2 kit has much better timings. However, as the benchmarks showed, there is very little difference in performance when they are run at the same speeds. DDR3 is only able to surpass DDR2 when it is run at the higher clock speeds it is capable of. If I was to have a complaint about the memory, it would be the timings. With DDR2 we have come to expect very tight timings. If the DDR3 memory had tighter timings, it would be able to surpass the performance of the DDR2 at any speed. This is not limited to OCZ Technology memory, as most of the current DDR3 memory kits have similar timings."
"If you've got the cash and you're ready to go all out on DDR3, then these DDR3-1066 2Gb kits from OCZ are well worth considering. They offer excellent overclocking ability, and look great with those XTC heatspreader with performance to match."
"This kit goes to show us the direction which DDR3 will be taking us. Being only 1333MHz, virtually the bottom end of the DDR3 FSB ranges that we are starting to see, this kit still promises to be a force to be reckoned with. Hiding behind the XTC shields are chips that can hit almost 1500MHz when it is all said and done. And chances are these levels can be surpassed in the future with the higher performing X38 chipset motherboards being released and the X48 looming in the near future. With the non-1333MHz Core2Duos out there this is more than enough ram to get your CPU front side bus way past the levels it has ever seen. Like I stated early in this article, this was my first tussle with DDR3. One in which I was not totally out of place because the steps that it takes to get maximum performance and maximum front side bus is pretty much the same if not the same as it is with DDR2. The little differences are the higher FSB, greater bandwidth and the astronomical pricing. Even with these differences the performance of the DDR3 is not at a level where you will be super amazed, but there is a performance difference regardless. If it hasn't already become clear, this is the beginning of the DDR3 era and we will no doubt see massive improvements within a year or two."
"The transition to DDR3 has been a rocky one, as high prices and the lack of a compatible AMD platform have been two big strikes against this memory format. By offering DDR3 priced for the masses, companies like OCZ have cleared up at least one point of contention. Enthusiasts will want to stick with lower latency DDR3 and squeeze every ounce of performance from their systems, but entry-level users looking to get on the DDR3 bandwagon at a minimum of cost will find the OCZ PC3-10666 Gold 2x1GB kit a perfect match."
"The OCZ Gold isn’t made for overclocking so hardcore enthusiasts might not like, but it’s made for a different kind of enthusiast, those that want high capacity, good performance and stability and OCZ Gold offers that for those that want it."
