The lower prices that the retail consumer have experienced on DRAM over the past couple years is normal when there is greater production than demand. In the past the media has been able to talk the price of DRAM up, especially when there was a new Windoze O/S that once again required a lot more RAM just to operate the bloatware.

I suspect that with AMD releasing Kabini, Richland and Intel Haswell, there is an increase in OEM demand for RAM. This may cause retail RAM prices to increase slightly but if the DRAM makers get greedy as before, then consumers will just stop buying over-priced DRAM. The DRAM makers have been living high on the hog for years now with inflated DRAM prices.

You're on drugs as usual and just try to reiterate same crappy news all over again.

Memory market is in slowdown since Win 7 hit the market and crapptastic Win 8 DIDNT BROUGHT ANY NEW FEATURE which result in 20%-25% more decline in PC sales in six month period. There are also no CPU price wars, nor revolutionary performance new products from gutter swallowing AMD that would burst crappy computer stores sales. And everything is crapptastic for the last four years if you're Intel

And first and foremost. Japanese memory makers are reorganazing themselves and eating huge loans for past couple of years and to make banks slurry happy thy need to sky rocket prices of commodity 4GB memory modules which are by far obsolete tech since 2010 and we'll never see commodity 16GB DDR3 ram. So it's another PC market stagnation. And this time seems for good. Welcome 16GB DDR4 whenever Intel release it's Haswell (btw. still delayed for marketing reasons) successor. No more tick-tock-fuck every 12 month as we see in past couple releases.

As usual the peanut gallery is spouting B.S. hype again. It's laughable to think anyone would use DDR4 on a desktop or laptop, especially with DDR3 not even coming close to being saturated. It's pretty obvious that English is not the primary language of the peanut gallery folk who like to hype increased RAM prices and needless tech, for the benefit of the RAM companies. Fat chance of that working.
