    Re: DRAM price will decline as much as 15 per cent in Q3

    Seems my delayed buying is paying off.

    Wanted an R7 1800x + 64Gb ram (Photography + Videography) but just couldn't justify the cost.

    Now it seems Zen2 is going to great and I will be able to afford/justify the ram cost, happy days.

    I know you like making bad jokes for various reasons but the trade war was not responsible for this.

    That was quick: the Corsair Vengeance 8GB memory module I linked to at £37.10 yesterday is £34.20 today.

    News like this probably creates a self fulilling prophecy. Shops think people are going to hold off buying whilst the prices drop and so drop them earlier.

    But do they? Lose £1 a stick now by selling at near cost or lose £20 a stick later when the market goes down further? Take your pick. As a business I prefer emptying inventory bought at higher prices ASAP and then restocking as supplier's prices drop, maybe even increasing delivery times and converting to just in time to allow minimal losses in a bear market. You might lose a sale here and there when people are in a rush but turnover / volume does not equal profit and I've watched a very large business I worked for kill itself by trying for volume at all costs, selling loads, depriving competitors but making nothing. Most people aren't in a massive rush when buying PC parts (especially a build where often many suppliers have to deliver many bits) and so if they can increase delivery times to a week or maybe even two, rather than next day, I'd happily do that to save a few quid.

    Now the problem is buy more DDR4 or wait for DDR5 and or the price fixing begins a new.

    Well, I recently bought a load of DDR3 to take me to 24GB. I'm not suffering from speed issues. That said, new Zen, mobos with PCI-e 4 and falling DDR4 prices MAY give me a reason to upgrade but quite a lot, including water cooling system, would need changing.
