Memory prices to go up.

"The rumored 30,000-50,000 scrapped wafers are encouraging other major suppliers to hike their contract quotes by over 10% to US$14, the sources said."

10% up this week. I know of a mem vendor cancelling certain prices this week in order to reissue at higher prices next week. If you're thinking of buying new memory, buy sooner rather than later. iPhone 7 set to hike DRAM prices too as production ramps and swallows a big chunk of supply.
Between that and the pound being down against Taiwan NTD/Korean Won, you'll be paying more and more.


From the man in Taiwan. Thankfully I don't need any

What kind of memory are we talking about here really?... Memory of phones or RAM in PCs?.

Nice find. I decided to look into this further and make this into a full front page article.



Read more on these rumoured upcoming DRAM price increases.
