Subject: DDR Prices Are Falling
I personally haven't done any checking with local vendors, but according to this report over at The Inquirer, memory prices are crashing over in China due to the new year, taxing, and more. Word:
DOUBLE DATA RATE (DDR) prices are crashing through the floor today amidst claims that some of the big memory manufacturers, the Dramurai, are dumping stock like there's no tomorrow.Keep your eyes open, now may be the time to add that extra bit of memory you've been saving up for.
For example, 256MB DDR modules are costing as little as $36 and that's causing a number of brokers and memory dealers to clear up their stock, big time.
The Chinese New Year appears to be one reason for the swift decline in prices, but there's also a move by one or two manufacturers to empty their warehouses of DRAM, for tax and accounting reasons.
In fact, DDR 32MX8 chips are at a 52 week low – so there's not many reasons to be cheerful if you're a Dramurai in 2003.
