Seven Steps to Software Security

Marco Fumagalli continues to deliver the up to date beans with his weekly report on spot pricing.

Memory

The week ends with slight decreases on the memory market, especially for lower tier brands. 64MB PC-133 OEM modules are now offered at around $58.00, while 128MB are mostly quoted at $115/117. On the contrary, 8Mx8 original/major chip prices are holding firm at around $8 apiece.

Probably this means chip manufacturers are trying to gain sales by putting larger quantities of second-tier and OEM chips in the market, in order not to depress major brand prices.

CPUs

Oversupply of 650/667/700/733 Pentium III continues and prices are going down even further. PIII 700 and 733 in FC-PGA (flip chip) packages are now quoted at the same price at $185. PIII-650 are mostly sold at between $165 to $170.

AMD CPUs are performing well, and the product is widely available in all flavours. Prices are mostly unchanged from last week. The K7 700 and 800, and TB 900 are now sold at $142, $180 and $279, respectively.

Prices for AMD 1GHz are below the $500 mark and the product is available from many different sources. ®
