The OCZ Gold Edition DDR 3 RAM is a seriously fast little bundle, and there are even faster modules available from OCZ in the market. The price, however, is what will stop you from reaching too eagerly for your wallet — Rs 15,000 for a kit of 2GB x 2 RAM. If you can actually afford this, buy it, you will not regret it one bit.

OCZ Gold Edition DDR3 RAM detailed review

Golden memory


We’re soon going to see a transition from DDR2 to DDR3.


The gold edition DDR3 RAM from OCZ sports a 1333 MHz clock speed. The Honeycomb Grille pattern cooler on it, serves a dual purpose; not only does this make the RAM chips run cooler, it also makes them look cooler!


We tested this RAM on an ASUS rampage extreme (Intel X48 Express chipset) motherboard with Intel X6800 processor and an NVIDIA GTX 280 Graphics card. We were immediately able to see the difference: softwares and games loaded a lot faster and returned better frame rates.


In our benchmarks, the OCZ RAM performed very well: SiSoft Sandra showed a memory latency of 97 ns — latency in common terms means the time taken to complete a request from the time it was generated. We were able to get a 3DMark Vantage score of 10,956 marks.
