De DRAM prijzen zijn de afgelopen weken door de toegenomen vraag in verband met eindejaars verkopen licht gestegen, meldt AsiaBizTech. Verwacht wordt dat de prijzen begin volgend jaar weer zullen dalen:
December 15, 1999 (TOKYO) -- The spot price for DRAMs kept its downward trend, but the 30-day rolling average price as of Nov. 26, 1999 began an upward trend.
[...] The spot price for 64MB DIMMs in the 30-day rolling average price has reverted to a rising trend. This is because demand for them has increased as the year-end sales battle nears. However, the supply shortage of CPUs and other parts is restraining PC shipments, and memory prices will not fluctuate before the new year. It is feared that the memory price will fall after the new year.
