DigiTimes heard from a Nanya Technology spokesperson that DRAM prices will likely continue to fall by another 10-20 percent this quarter:
After having slid lately, contract prices of DRAM chips are likely to be further dragged down by another 10-20% in the fourth quarter of 2010, according to Pei Lin Pai, VP and spokesperson for Nanya Technology. The decline will be moderate later in 2010, when PC replacement demand from the enterprise sector emerges, said Pai.
Pai indicated that during the first half of 2010, both upstream and downstream PC-memory players were aggressively stocking inventory amid fears of chip shortages. But demand has turned weaker than expected since the latter half of the year.
