The basic chain will develop corrosion faster than the gold series. I'm sure there are other things but that's what I've found.

520 Gold DID

Back when I first began looking for a replacement chain, I talked with some other Dual Sport and Sport Bike riders in my area, and most of them preferred the DID X-ring Gold, and some of them did say that the lack of rust was one big reason for getting a gold chain, and that the X ring was a better retainer of lube at the links. Makes since to me.
