DDR5 modules in the last six months noticeably fell in price in the global market

DDR5 modules in the last six months noticeably fell in price in the global market

Prices of DDR5 standard RAM modules are still significantly higher than DDR4 memory, but over the past six months have fallen to more or less acceptable values.
That's according to Tom's Hardware, which analyzed offers from major U.S.
computer stores like Newegg and Amazon.Image source: ComputerBase.deIt makes sense that low-speed DDR5 modules with high timings are more affordable.
In this case the price for 1 GB of memory will be around $6-7 or $120-130 for a set of two modules with a total of 16 GB.
This is considerably less than the price, which sellers were asking for memory of the new standard at the start of its sales.
Sets cheaper than $ 500-1000 at that time to find in the free sale in principle not possible.
Fortunately, the manufacturers of DDR5 memory chips optimize their production, the lack of components weakened, and it is only natural that the modules of the new memory standard began to get cheaper.
At the same time, Tom's Hardware notes that the decline in prices is observed not only in the U.S., but also in Europe.
The data confirms the German portal ComputerBase, which reports that the average price per gigabyte of DDR5 memory on the European market has dropped to nearly €5.
In the U.S., the most affordable sets of DDR5 memory with a total capacity of 16 GB offered by brands Crucial, Kingston and Patriot.
Variants with a frequency of 4800 MHz and CL40 timings can be purchased for $110-120.
Faster kits with 5200-5600 MHz and CL40-CL36 timings are available for $120-180.
Sets of two DDR5 RAM cards of 16 GB each (32 GB total) at 5200 to 5600 MHz and CL34-CL36 timings can be found for less than $250.Image source: Tom's HardwareFor even higher speed modules with 6000 MHz and CL32-CL36 timings you would have to pay over $300.
This is still very expensive, but much cheaper than a few months ago.
For example, back in December last year, a 32GB set of G.Skill Trident Z DDR5-6000 CL36 RAM was offered for $4000 (four thousand dollars).
In January, its price dropped to $800.
And today the exact same memory and even with lower latencies can be found \"only\" for $380.It is very likely that by the release of Ryzen 7000 processors, which will work exclusively with DDR5, memory modules will fall even further in price.
