It's only recently that OCZ started to target their memory for different users. With the Platinum and Gold lines, the focus was on overclocking. The Platinum pushed for low latency, while the Gold aimed for high memory speeds. That has been changed now. OCZ realizes the importance in including gamers as a main target group and is now pushing their Gold memory to gamers. The Platinum now focuses purely on hardware enthusiasts, like overclockers, and the Titanium pushes for mission critical systems that need reliable memory.
One important aspect of the OCZ Gold memory is the low price tag. Not every gamer can afford top of the line computer hardware. With so many gamers in the world, good memory is necessary to keep frames high and systems lag free. Additionally, not every gamer is an overclocker. This means that not every gamer would even attempt to overclock. Gamers are most likely to plug in the memory and start fragging. The new OCZ Gold PC3500 GX, which stands for Gamer eXtreme, is the memory gamers need. It provides low latency operations for gamers who need cutting edge performance and provides a little headroom for gamers that overclock.
