DDR: retail prices go down

According to the messages from Taiwan, memory module distributors are sure that DDR prices tend to go down in December. Despite the X-mas sales season, the launch of numerous 12" silicon wafer fabs forced makers to reduce prices. At that the spot prices for 128Mbit and 256Mbit DDR chips dropped down to $3.0-3.5 and $6.0-6.5.

Samsung Electronics and Nanya Technology were the first to announce the price cut. So, Samsung 256Mb DDR now cost $58-60. Hynix Semiconductor follows them with its credit liability. Infineon Technologies with its $64 256Mb DDR chips remains the only company keeping retail prices high.

According to DRAMeXchange, the worldwide DRAM shipment grew by 5% in November comparing to the previous month, reaching 389 million conventional units (128Mbit equiv.) At that the DDR share increased to 63.7% in November (from 49.8% of September) and the SDRAM share reduced to 32.9%.

November worldwide DDR shipments grew to 247.91 million conventional units, that’s 16% more than 211.93 million of October. At the same time, 256Mbit chips make 63.2% of total DRAM shipments, and 128Mbit – just 30.5%.
