DRAMeXchange this week reported the results of worldwide DRAM memory shipments in November 2002. Global output of DRAM 128Mb equivalent chips rose 4.92% in November compared to the previous month what was conditioned by strong demand on personal computers in the first half of November. The growth of the market is not as substantial as in October (8%, see this news-story for more details). The shares of different types of memory available on the market clearly represent the general trend of the transition to DDR SDRAM.

Currently mainboard manufacturers, chipset designers and personal computer vendors try to get rid of SDR SDRAM inventory they have (mainboards, chipsets, memory modules and so on), therefore, expect the major drop of SDR SDRAM memory market share during the next two or three months.

In November 247.91 million of 128Mb equivalent DDR SDRAM memory chips were produced, up from 211.93 million of units a month ago. Nearly two times less or 128.01 million of 128Mb equivalent SDR SDRAM memory devices were made during the same period in comparison to 144.94 million of devices in October. RDRAM output also continued its decrease: only 13.20 of 128Mb equivalent chips were shipped in November, a decrease of 0.79 million from October.

Currently DDR SDRAM occupies 63.71% of the whole DRAM market, SDR SDRAM’s share is 32.90% and RDRAM holds approximately 3.39%.

The DRAM trends remain to be the same as before: DDR SDRAM to rule the world, while SDR SDRAM and RDRAM are to stay only in niche devices.
