Default OCZ Scaling Back DRAM Operations

OCZ has announced plans to begin eliminating the production of its low-margin DRAM modules. The Wall Street Journal reports that OCZ will begin focusing on 'higher-margin specialty and high-performance memory products' which is a veiled way of saying SSDs. The report indicates that the company will however still continue to pursue the DRAM market... [ Read full article ]

Ok so they were piss off of RMA on gold and platinum and all there identical ram with different color so they decide to focus on the place they rock the house, SSD. This sound good to me at all! It also explain why we can't have there ram anymore for the past week (which dosen't matter to me because we avoid it ).

I think this is a good move by OCZ. They have too many models of RAM that are similar, such as Value, Gold, and Platinum. From what I see, they're more or less the same as each other. They should have only one budget model RAM and the rest should step up accordingly.

im not sure cutting profits(even slimmer) from different lines is a smart move.

They are OCZ. The same company that makes "GAMER" products. Because all games need red lights and the F4t4l1ty logo on it to be good at games.

Too bad. I've never had any problems with my OCZ stuff. Ah well, it's been fun.

They are making 3% margin on their base-model DRAM products. Why tie up the money in producing a very low margin product, when they can focus their R&D and production on enthusiast-model ram and SSD's that make more money on the investment? It's simple business sense.

Was a time I bought OCZ ram and psu products, but haven't for quite some time. They have been outpaced in the areas that they were once strong in. Adios OCZ!

I think it's a good move. Their current strengths are with performance ram and SSDs, stick to what's making you the most money. Also, by trimming their memory line, it causes less confusion with selection and simply makes good business sense as Sugar said.
