Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

The slippery DRAM market is not expected to make a full recovery until sometime after March 2001.

Prices are still declining, and at their lowest, DRAM 64Mb memory chips on the spot market have plummeted to under $3, Asiabiztech reports.

The rolling average contract prices of 128Mb DRAMs for the month ended November 10 were $13.82 in North America, $11.49 in Europe, and $15.40 in Asia. Compared to the previous week (ended November 3), this represented a price drop of 3.49 per cent for North America and 11.78 per cent for Europe, while prices stayed pretty constant in Asia.

Spot market prices for 128MB DIMMs (PC133) fell 8.3 per cent on the previous week to $73.14 in North America, 10.12 per cent to $70.45 in North America, and 9.75 per cent to $64.51 in Asia.

Yesterday chip giant Micron Electronics issued a profit warning, blaming lower DRAM pricing. The company reckoned the fall in DRAM memory prices between this and the previous quarter wiped around $85 million off sales - it now expects revenues of between $385 million and $400 million. ®
