Earlier this week HEXUS.channel revealed that memory prices were set to fall in advance of Christmas. Today, that shift has been confirmed by memory market watcher DRAMeXchange.

Spot prices for DDR2 1Gb started to fall after a prolonged rise on 10 November, dropping 15 percent from $2.62 to $2.22 in the following two weeks. Back in mid-July, the same memory would have cost you a mere $1.05.

DRAMeXchange reckons the reason for this fall is a rise in production from the likes of Nanya and PSC, and expects the spot price for 1Gb DDR2 to fluctuate between $2 and $2.50.

On the contract side, prices are expected to remain flat after rising by 82 percent in the past four months. Furthermore, DRAMeXchange reckons contract prices will decline by five to ten percent in December.

"Don't shoot the messenger..."

Why not? The messenger is easier to catch and there is a certain amount of satisfaction in shooting somebody.
