The price of a single 32GB memory is just more than 91.23 United States Dollar . Memory suppliers are apparently unhappy with these costs, though and have announced that prices will increase again in the middle of next year.
Due to the high inventory of cloud storage and corporate server users, the price of server memory in Q4 dropped by 10-15 percent and the price of 32 GB DDR4 memory modules fell to between 100-110 US dollars, according to the research company’s report.
This has also influenced the price of regular DDR4 memory by 8-10% and the price of 8 GB memory modules is now about 24.5-25.5 US dollars. The price of memory in Q4 has declined by about 10 percent overall.
With respect to the 2021 memory forecast, it was initially planned that it will not be warmed up before next year’s second half, since AMD’s Milan-based new-generation EPYC processors would not be delivered until next year’s Q1, and Intel’s Ice Lake-SP servers would have to wait until Q2.
The present situation has changed, though. The three initial memory pellet makers, Samsung, SK Hynix and Micron, have started to monitor memory output capability and reduce shipments. Memory will hit an equilibrium between supply and demand in the Q1 quarter of next year, even marginally tight, and become in short supply.
The memory market will be fully transformed by Q2 of next year and prices will return to an upward trajectory.
