[Kit] Samsung does not expect computer memory prices to drop next year - Page 2

post #11 of 74
I've been hating the price of RAM. Not because I need more - I just can't have a 'cheap' 8GB build for new PC gamers. I can build pretty decent rigs, but when 8GB of RAM is the one of the most expensive parts, I get discouraged.
EDIT: This is the basic rig I have on hand. Designed to rival One/PS4, and still be cheap. RAM is the third fourth expensive part, and only by a few cents.

I bought my 16gb kit two years ago for 80 bucks. It was an impulse buy and I felt pretty stupid at the time because I already had 2x4gb of 1600mhz that I'd gotten free with my motherboard. The kit I bought is $160 now. I don't feel so stupid about buying it anymore. tongue.gif

You can't really compare one-off car companies with memory kits. It would be more akin to companies producing pickups (Dodge, Ford, GM, Toyota, etc.) all "randomly" deciding to produce very few pickups during a time span. Of course Maybach and Bugatti can do what they want. There's no competition for them. The memory market is nothing like that.

Current dram manufacturers are colluding. Hopefully Koreans put them in their place.

Not a bad point, but that contradicts what the article says. They're opening a new factory to EXPAND supply.

Did you read the literally seven extra un-quoted sentences?!. Samsung is INCREASING production! They are building a NEW factory to INCREASE output! That's the opposite of collusion. They're purposefully increasing supply, NOT restricting it.

I read, but I'm not sure you did. Your quote I responded to was in response to a post with regards to this...
Quote:
All memory makers tried to constrain supply of products in order to keep prices at high levels.

Nor would it make sense to quote Bugatti and Maybach when talking about increasing production. That's actually counter to what you were trying to prove. Nice try.

Yes, companies are colluding, with the exception of Samsung. Samsung will be the ones to put them in their places.

Again, you have restated your original thought without any additional validation, evidence or clarification. What evidence do you have of collusion?
