At the end of summer and unlike temperature, memory prices are on the rise. If in July we noted 4.7% increase of DDR prices and 2.3% drop of DDR2 prices, this time the two are on the rise.
A 64 MB chip of DDR-400 now costs $5.9 (+12.6%). DDR2 memory prices are the most increased: +20.4% for DDR2-553 (5.55€) and +21.8% for DDR2-667 (5.75€).
After increasing from $4.3 to $5.3 in one month and a half at the beginning of the year, DDR2-533 prices felt to $4.5 at the end of last month. The price increase is equivalent this time in one month and we have to hope that it won't continue even if demand is generally higher at this period of the year.
