DDR3 slips to under €5 per gigabyte in Euroland

Written by


Deal of the Day: Big cuts in recent weeks
Prices of DDR3 modules are continuing to slide and we are starting to see some ridiculous pricing.

Demand seasonally drops off in the summer, so price cuts come as no surprise, but it’s worth noting that DDR3 prices have slopped to less than €5 in some markets. Of course, one should not expect to get lightning fast chips at such prices, but many users don’t need them anyway, particularly in the upgrade market.

Here are a couple of examples from the German market – TeamGroup’s Elite 8GB DDR-1333 kit sells for just €34.99, or €4.37 per GB. A month ago it sold for €52. It doesn’t even look bad, as it features an aluminium heatsink and a lifetime warranty. G.Skill is selling a similar 8GB kit for €39, and a month ago it cost €55. In case you don’t need 8GB, Kingston sells single 4GB modules or 2x2GB kits for €19.99.

The same trend is visible in the SO-DIMM market, although these modules are a tad pricier. For example, Kingston is selling a ValueRAM 4GB DDR3-1066 module for €21, down from €30 just a month ago. There are plenty of 1GB, 2GB and 4GB SO-DIMM modules from Kingston, Transcend, Corsair and other vendors for less than €5.5 per gigabyte, and what better time to upgrade a laptop than in the summer?
