DRAM spot price slide continues

30-day average falls for fourth week in a row

The 30-day average spot price for 64Mb DRAM has fallen for the fourth week in a row. So too has the price for PC100 64MB DIMMs, taking the price of such parts to the point they'd reach just before September's Taiwan earthquake, according to market researcher ICIS-LOR, cited by Japan's Nikkei newswire. Between 14 October and 12 November, 64Mb 8x8 PC100 DRAM prices for large customers hit $10.47 in North America, $11.09 in Europe and $10.14 in Asia. For 64MB DIMMs, the prices reached $83.59 in North America (down 7.19 per cent), $86.52 in Europe (down 9.53 per cent) and $85.61 in Asia (down 8.99 per cent). ®
