According to the latest report from Taiwan’s market intelligence company, Trend force, We have information that the contract price of PC DRAM is expected to fall, resulting in a 0-5% drop in asking prices in the fourth quarter of 2021.
A while ago, we Report TrendForce’s forecast for the third quarter of 2021 stated that the expected price increase was lower than the initial forecast. This news gave many consumers around the world a sigh of relief, because it means that in a world where GPU prices are too high, DRAM will not become more expensive.
According to the report, according to today’s data, as “DRAM suppliers continue to reduce prices to adjust their DRAM inventory”, it is estimated that the contract price of DRAM will drop by 0-5%. This means that the inventory of DRAM has been filled, so that memory suppliers have to reduce prices to get rid of the inventory.
According to the report: “As far as the contract market is concerned, the current DRAM inventory level of PC OEM manufacturers is relatively high, because they have stored a large amount of PC DRAM in advance. It will reduce the overall demand for notebook computers, thereby lowering the overall demand for PC DRAM. Therefore, TrendForce predicts that the contract price of PC DRAM in the fourth quarter of 2021 will drop by 0-5% from the previous month.”
|First quarter of 2021||Second quarter of 2021||Third quarter of 2021||Fourth quarter of 2021|
|PC DRAM price||Up ~5%||Up 23-28%||Up 3-8%||Down 0-5%|
Another interesting thing worth noting is that DRAM inventory already has enough inventory to last about 8 to 10 weeks in June, and now to the fourth quarter of 2021, these inventories are expected to last as long as 12 weeks, further showing Prices fall. Of course, this is a positive signal for all consumers, especially those who need to upgrade or are building new PCs.
