OCZ Platinum XTE PC3-16000 2x2GB review - PCSTATS.com OCZ Platinum XTE PC3-16000 2x2GB review
Thu, Mar 03 2011 | 9:03AM | Filed under: Memory| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

Unless you have been hiding under a rock for the last little while, news of OCZ leaving the computer RAM business completely by February 28 of this year has been spreading like wildfire on the internet. This announcement came after OCZ's statement in August 2010, when the company decided to withdraw from the unprofitable commodity memory market to focus on high performance enthusiast RAM instead. However, two weeks ago, news dawned upon us that even that move is no more. Being a major player in the solid state disk drive market (Not surprisingly, as it seems to me the OCZ Vertex 2 is the Honda Civic of the SSD world, except with Lamborghini performance), OCZ recently claimed 78% of their revenue came from SSDs in the past financial quarter. While we wish OCZ the best in their future ventures, it was a certainly a sad day for us upon hearing about this. I have personally witnessed OCZ's substantial growth back in the early 2000's. From their awesome marketing in widely popularizing the use of heatspreaders on high performance overclocking RAM when DDR1 RAM was still the standard and AMD Athlon 64s were the craze, to competitively priced high quality modules, OCZ have unquestionably won the hearts of many casual system builders and hardcore enthusiasts alike. I still remember their Special Ops Edition Urban Elite DDR2 with cool looking 'camo' heatspreaders, the epic Flex XLC that can be hooked up to your water cooling system, and my first ever set of DDR3 RAM, back when 2x1GB modules ran for $600 a kit. Before we wave goodbye to our long time friend, today we will publish what is probably our last OCZ RAM review on the Platinum XTE PC3-16000 2x2GB dual channel kit.
