    CamelCamelCamel is an Amazon tracker and $ isn't a British or European currency.

    http://hardware.info gives price histories, specs and reviews from a range of suppliers in the UK, Belgium and the Netherlands.

    My DDR4 bookmark shows that prices have been fairly stable since September/October. Hopefully next year will see the reappearance of gains for the customer's wallet.

    CamelCamelCamel does tracking in £ as well for Amazon.co.uk .

    Here is the first module in AnandTech article.



    Roughly £140 June, then £80 Oct, (60/140)*100= 42.8% drop.

    The second module in AnandTech article (G-SKILL Ripjaws V F4-3200C16D-16GVR) uk.hardware.info have no data, nor pricespy.co.uk, CamelCamelCamel does but only from Oct 15 til now so can't use.

    Then the third module in the AnandTech article.



    Roughly £470 June but lets go with £457, then £230 Oct but go with £243, (214/457)*100= 46.8% drop.

    Been glued to HUKD since late 2014 and defo like the Hexus article state "between June and October" prices have dropped, agree not the same % as US prices.

    Even DDR3 has fallen through the floor, I can recall the modules I have currently were about £140 ish crimbo 2014, come around early 2015 £115 I grabbed them, a week later they were £96, luckily as bought from Amazon they gave difference back. Now they are around £65.99 .

    I'm not complaining. It'll make the next upgrade a lot easier to swallow. Especially if Zen takes off.
