According to data from DRAMeXchange, contract quotes for 1GB DDR2 667 DRAM modules stopped their recent decline to remain stable at around US$17 in the early January this year. However, while some market watchers have been quick to dismiss the the flat pricing as signs of improvement in the market, attributing the stability to the effects of better-than-expected sales performance during the holiday season and additional orders from first-tier PC OEMs, DRAM makers are keen to believe that price trends will continue to stabilize.
Currently, most DRAM contract quotes are showing signs of stabilization, although clients with smaller volumes have been forced to accept higher prices. However, pricing is still lower than cost, meaning DRAM makers are still not willing to accept the current offerings, according to sources at DRAM makers.
