DRAM prices dropped sharply

Posted on Tuesday, January 11 2011 @ 01:40:57 CET by


Tom's Hardware reports prices of DDR2 and DDR3 memory chips have dropped sharply since June 2010 due to weak demand and oversupply.
iSuppli said that 2 GB DDR3 module currently carries a contract price of about $21, down from more than $44 in June 2010. 2GB DDR2 memory is also selling in the $21 range, down from about $39 in June. The company said that DDR3 prices are falling at a faster rate as the technology accounts for the majority of the market (60%).

“DRAM prices in general have been affected by soft PC demand - especially during the first half of 2010 - as well as by greater supply of commodity memory following a solid increase in bit shipments during the second half,” iSuppli said. “That lethal combination of falling demand and growing supply has coalesced to place a great deal of pressure on DRAM ASPs.”
