Dynamic random access memory Prices in the US and European markets have begun to fall by 5-10%. in Europe, Cowcotland report The prices of several Corsair and G.Skill memory kits have dropped by 5-15 Euros this month. In the US, we are beginning to see the overall price of 16GB and 32GB memory kits ranging from an average of US$10 to US$30.
CowCotland reviewed the price charts of several G.Skill and Corsair products, including the Trident Z and Vengeance series. Some kits, such as G.Skill’s 2x8GB Trident Z and 2x4GB Aegis kits, have fallen in price by only 1-3 Euros. However, other kits, such as the G.Skill Trident Z 2x8GB 3000MHz kit, Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8GB 3200MHz and G.Skill Trident Z 2x8GB 4000MHz kit, have an overall price reduction of up to 15-20 Euros.
According to PCPartPicker in the US, the same price cuts have also occurred on 32GB and 16GB kits.Pirate ship 2x8GB LPX and RGB Pro 3200MHz In particular, the CL16 package has seen a large drop, which has dropped by nearly 10 to 20 US dollars since July. The LPX kit has dropped from an average of US$90 a few weeks ago to US$70-75 now. The same is true for the RGB Pro kit. The average price in July was US$101 and fell to US$88 in August.
32GB Ripjaws V 3200MHz CL16 by G.Skill The kit also dropped significantly, from US$155 in late July to US$133 now on August 17. This is one of the biggest declines we have seen so far this month, and the same is true for a good 32GB kit.
In general, the more popular memory kits are falling sharply, while the rare four-channel and high memory frequency kits remain relatively stable in price.
The memory market price is expected to drop by 0-5%, according to Trendforce report last week. That’s because there is too much inventory in the DRAM market, forcing memory manufacturers to lower prices to get rid of excess inventory.
We are not sure how long the price cut will last, but we are happy to see that prices finally start to fall. In the past three quarters, DRAM prices have risen steadily, but as the DDR5 platform will be launched in the near future, manufacturers will seek greener pastures.
