I got 16GB (2 x 8GB) of Crucial 2133MHz DDR4 desktop RAM for £45 in November 2016. Memory prices have absolutely exploded!

Yes, it is indeed. But 2133 is very basic for DDR4 and price is lower usually. You can try to sell them now and join Bitcoin millionaires 33258244-eNeX1.jpg
Why have RAM prices gone so high? Is this all from the factory fire in 2016/17? I forget which year.
there should be a continued downard trend now, with samsung increasing sram production, others should follow

I don't know of a RAM factory fire maybe you are thinking of the HDD factory fire from 2011. But RAM is stupidly expensive due to very high demand, every phone now having 4gb, tv's have 2gb. Just high demand and manufacturers responding by increasing prices rather than producing more as it's easy money.

Samsung & SK Hynix (About 75% of all RAM is made by them) announced 2017 Q4 profits went up by over 14%.
They won't give that up without a struggle.
There's also less money to be made on desktop RAM as sales of this are not as high as they used to be, no massive incentive on manufactureres to increase supply as it's all about the mobile industry.
I wouldn't put anything but DDR4 3200 in a Ryzen APU build, especially a 2400G; you're hobbling the Vega cores.

extremetech.com/com…nce

On a side note, "DDR4 2400 MHz" is incorrect.
2400 is the data rate, not the frequency. DDR4-2400 runs at 1200MHz.
Though this is not an uncommon mistake, even among retailers

If I remember correctly, minimum recommended for the new ryzen APUs is 2666 or 2933?
Damn not in Gigabyte compatibility list for X299 boards
Too slow...

I agree. If you want maximum performance out of your APU you should invest in high clocked RAM - ideally 3200. DDR2400 will choke overall performance of your system.
1. The reason its expensive is mainly down to smartphones and them eating up the DDR4 capacity.
2.The reason why Samsung et al need to be careful is if they run too high , then the Chinese will get involved.
3. This ram is fine for a Ryzen (cant speak) for AGPI build. Ram makes a difference only if you are running a high end graphics card such as a 1080 from all the videos ive seen.
4. This is a good price, although with increased production I hope it starts to fall. the £ has also strengthened against the $.
5. It and GPUS are still stupid expensive. Maybe bitcoin will crash.....
I read the other day that Samsung and others were being investigated by China for price fixing.

I see that you are posting negative comments all over HUKD. You should stop that.

On topic: every kid understands the true meaning of DDR4 2400Mhz., no need to dig with a shovel to nowhere. And about the frequency, what is the point to buy this CPU and 16GB 3200 RAM? You can't use more than 2GB of that expensive RMA with GPU anyway.

The other thing, 2400G+16Gb2400 is designed to be an economy home consumer build, not a gaming rig. If You are seeking for FPS, buy 1060/1070 + Pentium Gxxx/R3 1xxx and don't waste Your money on 2400G.

I didn't find his comment negative at all. I found it very helpful and informative and it saved me wasting my money.

I have this RAM installed and the Flare X kits were developed especially for AMD Ryzen CPUs. Mine overclocked using Auto Voltage (1.36v) to 2933mhz using pretty much the same timings. There's not a massive difference in performance from 2400mhz to be honest. By today's standards this price is a very good deal as I paid the same back in November 2017. Heat!

Yeah, I only realised this after looking back at the parts list that I have and doing some research by which at this point the ram is no longer available at that price.

3000 would still be ok

I'm impressed that you've managed to review all 5000+ of my HUKD comments to reach that judgement.

It didn't take me quite so long to evaluate your contributions.
I need to upgrade my PC but prices are f****

I really need to upgrade since I bought a Oculus rift during a price glitch so I impulse bought

I can still play some games but I am scared to buy games just incase I can't run them
