For those of you wondering why memory prices have more than doubled over the past few weeks, I have some contacts in the industry. It turns out that the few DDR chip makers have been holding back on production. This in turn has driven the prices up. It will also effect the prices of SDRAM. I hope this won't last too long. You can still find good prices on SDRAM out there.
Well it is frustrating.
Where I buy hardware there is almost no difference in price between DDR-SDRAM and RDRAM.
Kind of a slimey coincidence that when Intel finally allows DDR support for the P4 the cost of DDR-SDRAM rises to the price level of RDRAM.
Coincidence or Conspiracy???
