The cost of manufacturing a DRAM memory has increased by 30 percent. In 2021, everything possible is happening so that no one renews a PC, much less buys a high-performance PC.
The cost of manufacturing a DRAM memory has increased by 30 percent
The reason for this is that the long list of products that are rising in price now includes RAM. Starting from December to January, the acquisition price of DRAM memory has increased by 30 percent. No, there has not been a flood, earthquake or alien attack and all of this is due to a pact by the main manufacturers to strangle the stock available on the market.
Considering that 95 percent of the world’s production capacity is in the hands of Samsung, SK Hynix, and Micron, or that Samsung and SK Hynix represent 75 percent of that market, any move made by each company has a global impact and more when the three companies allied to reduce last year’s investment in memory due to the collapse of prices, thus seeking to produce less memory than was being consumed to eliminate all the stock stored to raise prices, hence this huge increase in prices that will impact in the coming months on selling prices.
