    I seriously don't think I could get those 64 GB DDR4 ECC memory much cheaper than I already have. By "cheap" I mean approx. GBP 82.50 per 16 GB. Which incidentally is about GBP 33 cheaper than the 16 GB DDR3 ECC memory that I bought at the end of 2012 for my current (and soon to be replaced) rig.

    Weird I read a couple of days ago that there was a price war between korea and some where else and the wholesale prices of dram had jumped 20% which was going to push the price of all dram and ssds up very soon.

    Magic 8Ball, will there be a fire in the DRAM factories in the near future?

    By the logic, isn't the price war lowering the prices?

    It's a war who can go higher. DUH.

    Re: Gartner: DRAM glut will cause 42 per cent price decline this year

    Japan and South Korea are having (another) spat about WW2 compensation and sovereignty issues, with trade in electronic components and chemicals being used as a proxy battlespace. Near future ramifications are hard to ascertain for sure; same with China/US tension, oil prices, currency devaluations, Brexit, etc. Predicting anything for certain under these circumstances seems an exercise in futility, but that's what analysts are (highly) paid for I guess. It'll be interesting to see how accurate this is by the end of the year.

    Ah, so a war on costs, not a war on end product pricing ? Makes sense.

    Why does that sound sarcastic. It wasn't meant to be.

    I wish we had DDR5 and it's platform already.

    Why, it's not like DDR4 brought much to the table, yes frequencies went up but so did CL numbers so effectively latency remained in the same 7-8ns window or thereabouts.

    After the price gouging, it's nice to see the prices continue to tumble. Will probably pick up another 16gb soon.

    Re: Gartner: DRAM glut will cause 42 per cent price decline this year

    My next build was planned for 64gb, with prices it got changed to 32gb and then to don't bother.

    Looks like 64gb is back on, can see some kits at prices I can accept already.

    In many respects it also pushed my 1800x plan to a 3700x so not all bad I suppose.
