Kingston told DigiTimes that they expect DRAM demand will remain strong in the second quarter of this year:
Demand for DRAM chips will remain strong in the second quarter of 2010, defying seasonal factors, according to Scott Chen, vice president of the APAC Business Division of Kingston Technology. Unit prices of DDR2 and DDR3 memory may move up higher even after reaching the US$3 mark, Chen added.
Microsoft Windows 7 is expected to play a significant role in spurring consumer and enterprise PC replacements that have been delayed for four to five years, said Chen. He said he is optimistic about the outlook for DRAM, saying end-market demand has remained strong since the beginning of 2010.
