They are not deals. The World has gone sideways for a while. It is just coming back to normal. But it is a very good thing. People can start buying PCs again. I know I would have upgraded my i7 4790K and trusty DDR3 if RAM wasn't more expensive than the motherboard.

I wonder if Tom and OC3D gang can dig up some statistics on component sales during the RAM crisis, and in the coming months. It would be nice to know what effects did RAM prices have on people trying to build a PC. It doesn't need to be official data. Just something slipped under the table by an anonymous source.

I'm glad this is happening for AMD's sake. It kinda sucked that the RAM was so expensive when Zen came out. That was really the only reason I stuck to Intel, as the RAM was a joke.

I also hope Zen 2 isn't so reliant on very fast memory, so I can upgrade without buying any more. I got a 16gb kit of 2666 for £100 at Christmas I felt like I'd won the lottery FFS.

It's important to remember that the lows of DRAM pricing where you could get 8GB DDR3 for £30 were as a result of unsustainable price fixing by larger companies attempting to starve out smaller players like G.Skill by forcing them to sell at prices where they couldn't possibly make a profit.

That's great but always seems like every time the price of a component goes down, the GPUs are increased by the same cost. If GPUs were at decent pricing, we'd be in a great time for affordable PC gaming since CPUs, RAM and SSDs are all very competitive at the moment all while needing a smaller PSU than ever.
