Don’t believe the hype: DRAM prices dropping, says Synnex

Memory provider Synnex says DRAM prices, contrary to speculation, have actually dropped by 15 per cent due to month-end pressure.

It says only DDR memory price has increased, and that was due to a rumour that a major DRAM maker was going to cut its DDR output at the beginning of April.

“As a result of the rumour, all the memory module vendors such as Kingston, Samsung, Hynix etc, have tightened their supply to tier 1 system integrators, distributors and resellers,” said Yu-Chen from Synnex.

“This caused the whole market to react and resulted in increased inventory holding.”

Although Acer’s marketing director recently likened computer memory to trading gold on the stock market, Synnex predict that DRAM prices will stabilise again in May.

“Prices should stabilise in May as long as DRAM makers don’t start to hold their inventory again,” sais Yu-Chen.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
