DDR3 adoption went too slow in 2007


DistreeXXL Memory vendors efforts in vain

DDR3 adoption failed to meet the expectations of and created a big headache for many memory vendors. The DDR2 fell to ridiculous prices, making it even harder to sell overpriced DDR3, and at the same time the Vista boom failed to materialize.

DDR3 prices are going down, and 2GB of quality DDR3 1600 is priced between 250 and €300 (down from €600,) but even €250 is too much if you know that you can buy quality 2GB DDR2 for about €60.

The memory world is in real trouble, and DDR2 will either go up or DDR3 will come down in price; or else, everyone will be out of the memory business.
