In an attempt to stimulate demand towards DDR2 memory, unnamed Taiwan-based producers of dynamic random access memory (DRAM) plan to sell bundles consisting of both DDR2 and DDR3 memory chips. If the information is correct, this may close the gap between pricing of DDR2 and DDR3.

According to market research firm DRAMeXchange, spot price of 1Gb DDR2 chip was $1.28 in average, whereas middling spot price of a 1Gb DDR3 chip was $2.03 on Wednesday. Meanwhile, contract prices of 1Gb DDR2 and DDR3 memory chips are $1.22 and $1.34, respectively, in the second part of July.

Earlier this month DRAMeXchange said that DDR3 memory will capture one third of the dynamic random access memory (DRAM) market by the end of the year, which will be a tipping point for the latest type of memory. However, the firm predicted that DDR prices would go up in July and August due to aggressive adoption of DDR3 by notebook makers.

The prediction appears to be correct, as, according to DigiTimes web-site, some DRAM suppliers want to sell bundles consisting of both DDR2 and DDR3 in order to stabilize demand and pricing of DDR2, which is still made in very high quantities.
