4GB DDR3 DRAMs Fall Below $16 in Contract Market

At this time, DRAM pricing is falling into territory that is unlikely to be sustainable for memory makers. According to DRAMeXchange, a 4 GB memory module can now be purchased for less than $16 on the Taiwanese spot market, which is down from $18.75 in August.

4 Gb DDR3 1600 MHz chips are selling for as low as $1.75, while 2 Gb chips can be purchased for as little as $0.80.

Also affected by the price declines were some segments of flash products, such as microSD memory cards, which hit $9 for 16 GB versions, and $3.95 for 8 GB models.

    Dear motherboard makers, please make dual CPU sockets for mainstream use, and start accommodating some 24 slots of ram, instead of only a measly 4 or 6 slots. Although, it's all pretty much useless to the general populace, as nothing is worthy to take advantage of more processing and more access to Ram, since Windows 8 is taking 100 steps back in the PC Productivity and need for innovation to the industry.

    R.I.P, although, I do hope more startup companies come with ideas and visions to get PC's needy of upgrading once again. Tablets are for stoneage Flintstones, why are we breeding populace with these devices today? Sad Sad state of affairs.

    I'm just taking a step back and remembering the day when i decided to go out and purchased a 4 MEGA-byte stick of RAM for my 486DX33 (correct me if i'm wrong but DX meant it had the built-in math co-processor versus the SX which didn't I believe) which doubled the amount of ram i had on that motherboard...

    That little sucker cost me $160.00... :pt1cable:
