Memory prices Posted on 06/04/2005 at 18:28 by Marc
After strong price cuts since the end of January, memory prices seem to have been stabilized. Since our last news March 22, DDR-266, 333 and 400 32 MB chips prices have respectively been reduced by -4, -1 and increased by +3%. We have notice, however, that DDR2 prices continue to decrease with -8% for 32 MB of DDR2-533 and -10% for the 64 MB version. A DDR2-533 chip is still though 71% more expensive than a DDR.
Because of the usual shift due to existing stocks, memory modules prices in shops have continued to decrease. So if the price of 512 MB of DDR-400 was around 55€ for the first two months of the year, it decreased to 40€ last March 22 and it has now reached 36.5€.
Price cuts noticed for DDR memory modules in shops since the end of January are now equivalent to those of chips on the memory market. So it is probable that these prices remain unchanged for the weeks to come.
