Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Drives this week are in a state of stasis, largely because of the Quantum hard drive story which we reported last week. Last week everything was in a freny. Marco will update us, come September. ®

Memory

Prices are down slightly this week, because demand is still on the low side.

The 64/100 major brand is now generally sold @ $64.00 (2nd tier brand @ $61.00) while the 64/133 major brand is selling at $65/66.00 (2nd tier $63.00), with PC-133 finally taking the lead on traded volumes.

Moreover DIMM manufacturers & brokers are more than happy to give extra/back-door discounts for significant orders. The rumours are that DRAM manufacturers are ramping up production for PC-133 and that big OEMs are contracting Q3 supplies on downtrend.

The general feeling is that, if in September, the demand will not be strong the memory market will go down significantly.

CPUs

The situation for CPUs is more or less the same. Low demand is driving prices down slightly, especially on PIII700, 750 & 800, which are plenty available on the open market. Prices for PIII600/650 are up slightly since availability is decreasing.

Here are today's and yesterday's prices, on memory.

  • PIII 600 $180/190

  • PIII 700 $190/200

  • PIII 750 $240/245

  • PIII 800 $290

We shall resume this series early September, as we said last week. ®
