DRAM production cuts send prices soaring

Posted on Friday, January 11 2013 @ 09:46:46 CET by

Memory makers are restricting production of commodity DRAMs, to put more emphasis on the more profitable mobile RAM and server DRAM chips. DigiTimes reports this is leading to a spike in DRAM prices:
Data gathered by DRAMeXchange show that prices for 1333MHz 2Gb DDR3 chips rose by 5% in one day to close at US$1.15 on average yesterday (January 10). Prices during the day climbed to as high as US$1.20.

Meanwhile, spot prices for 1600MHz 2Gb DDR3 chips went up 3% to close at US$1.09-1.15 on January 10, according to DRAMeXchange.

Contract prices have rebounded since late 2012. According to DRAMeXchange, late December quotes for 4GB DDR3 modules averaged US$15.75 with prices for 2Gb chips reaching US$0.83. Prices once fell to as low as US$14 during 2012.
