DRAM and NAND memory prices to increase

Posted on Saturday, Jul 28 2007 @ 08:17 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
DigiTimes reports prices of DRAM and NAND flash memory will continue to increase:
DRAM makers generally project a mild upward price trend in the third quarter, though DRAM makers are aggressively boosting their output. NAND flash, in the meantime, is also believed will see a positive price trend in the short term, given that more NAND flash-intensive applications are coming onboard.

After seeing the contract price for 512Mb DDR2 surged by over 20% sequentially in the first half of July, the second half of July saw a sequential growth narrow down to 3%, according to figures posted by DRAMeXchange. Since some PC OEMs now request quotes once instead of twice a month, DRAM makers who already raised their quotes in the first half of July caused a weakening in growth in the second half of the month, the memory-trading firm explained.
