The Golden code has recently been proposed as a 2 x 2 space time block code that achieves the optimal diversity - multiplexing gain tradeoff for a multiple antenna system. In this paper we review the decoding methodology for the Golden code, followed by performance comparisons with the Alamouti code and V-BLAST in Rayleigh fading environments with Doppler spread. Simulation results show that the Golden Code outperforms both the Alamouti code and V-BLAST at high SNR levels. For a symbol error rate of 10¡4 the Eb/N0 requirement for the Golden code is 5dB less than the Alamouti code and V-BLAST.
