Analyst company DRAMeXchange announced the end of the growth in prices for RAM, which has continued over the past few years.
According to DRAMeXchange, in the third quarter of 2018, the cost of DRAM increased by only 1-2% due to reduced demand. In the fourth quarter, the dynamics will change to negative, and RAM chips will fall in price by at least 5%.
NAND flash memory, meanwhile, has already begun to fall in price. In July-September 2018, purchase prices for it decreased by 10%, and by the end of the year the drop will accelerate to 15%, analysts say.
