DDR4 And DDR5 RAM Prices Might Go Up By 8% In Q4 2023

Major Price Increase Expected In Q4 2023!

Memory has become cheaper and more accessible over the years. However, a report from TrendForce indicates that the prices of DDR4 and DDR5 RAM are going to increase by 8% in the fourth quarter of this year.

This could ultimately impact the prices of graphics cards and notebooks.

NVIDIA RTX 4090 Graphics Card Green Surrounding

Currently, 32GB DDR5 3200MHz RAM can be bought for around $70, while DDR5 5200MHz RAM in the same capacity can be found for around $110. However, it would be best to take advantage of these prices while they last.

According to the report, DDR5 prices will continue to rise as the market sees an influx of new CPUs. Manufacturers like Samsung are also hoping to remove surplus inventory through a cut to production.

Such changes will impact various sectors, including the mainstream PC, server, and mobile DRAM markets. With the current demand for memory in all of these markets, manufacturers have shown an interest in maximizing profits.

As DDR5 gradually becomes the standard for mainstream PCs, a price increase between 3 and 8% is expected from manufacturers. In the case of DDR4 memory, this price increase will be limited between 0 and 5%.

Over in the server market, manufacturers hope to transition to more widespread DDR5 adoption. This will result in higher profits since there is a supply crunch in server DDR4 stocks after Samsung’s production cutbacks.

The OEM RAM market for PCs and laptops is expected to go through a similar trend. Nvidia’s server graphics cards are in high demand, and gaming notebooks are more popular than ever.

This has led to consistent demand, with the report expecting a 3-8% price hike in GPU DRAM prices, particularly affecting GDDR6 and GDDR6X memory.
