    True, I'm surprised how expensive ram has become. but its a decent price at this moment in time.
    Good deal! Should save anyone having to buy RAM right now about £25.

    Unless you have time machines, it is great as this is the cheapest price currently by £25. Doesnt help that RAM is predicted to futher increase in price for first half of 2018

    that's insane considering Samsung have already announced increases in production. I guess if people keep buying at this price....

    Doubt it will in increase but more likely drop and be more volitile with more price spikes.

    Plus with more 3d nand fabs online the demand for those wafers should lessen and allow more capacity for sram. That only applies to multi purpose fabs though.

    What is insane is the way the dram suppliers have screwed everyone over for a profit.



    As long as demand outstrips supply the price will continue to increase.

    For those that need Ram right now, they have to pay the market value, whether they like it or not.

    The manufacturers have been quite happy to let the prices rise and their profits with it. Their agreement to not compete or have a price war meant they avoided undercutting each other and prices have gone through the roof. So have their profits.

    Now though the shortage is such that it is letting other ram suppliers cut in on what Samsung sees as their market share, hence the sudden move to increase supply. They are also concerned that Chinese suppliers will enter the market and want to have supply meet demand before that happens.

    While Samsung started making changes in October we aren't likely to benefit from them until the second half of 2018. That is assuming demand doesn't continue to increase due to mobiles and such. Oh, and we've got to hope they decide to actually start competing on price.

    well you dont have to take my word, you can google it. it seems it wont drop until second half of 2018
    overpriced ram with flimsy heatsinks and you can't even overclock them. Bought a pair of new vengeance sticks while back and sent them straight back after trying them out.

    Low profile(necessary for a lot of people with large aftermarket air coolers), 3000Mhz sticks. They're entirely decent and there's nothing 'overpriced' about them compared to normal pricing at the moment.

    Nand production is different to sram, that said on multiple purpose fabs which does does both, then nand production will affect sram

    just remember that fabs, are not cheap to build, 7nm and 3nm fabs are rumoured to be costing up to 20bn
    Up to €192.90 now... Should've pulled the trigger earlier when I had the chance!

    D'oh!
    Could've sworn I checked the rest of them last night and they were all around €200.

    Not the end of the world though, got 8GB of Adata 2800/CL17 memory that'll do for now, but 16GB of 3000/CL15 will be mine one day!
