Browsing around the likes of Newegg and other major online retailers the cheapest you will see a set of DDR3 at two gigs would just under $350. Like all new things, you will pay a premium for it. But with the premium comes some incredible bandwidth as well. Most enthusiasts will tell you that bandwidth is not everything, latencies and timings plays a major role in performance as well. In the end however, you cannot stop technology. So, DDR3 is in and DDR2 is on its way out the door. One company that is always one of the first to do anything new when it comes to ram is OCZ. OCZ for the most part has dominant the DDR and DDR2 scene. Chances are that they will be there right in the middle of the DDR3 movement as well. To get the movement started OCZ has been cool enough to send us over some DDR3-1333MHz for initial testing. 1333MHz is the lowly ends of the DDR3 spectrum as well, there are already samples of DDR3-1800 surfacing. For starters let us introduce you to the OCZ DDR3 PC3-10666 Gold Edition. 1333MHz speed and some relaxed timings of 9-9-9-26 is what you get with the new kit.
