DRAM and NAND flash spot pricing loses momentum, says inSpectrum
Contributed by inSpectrum [Friday 14 August 2009]

DRAM and NAND flash spot pricing lost its momentum this week (August 10-14), marking an end to recent price rises in the market, noted inSpectrum.

inSpectrum reported that spot prices for both DDR2 and DDR3 dropped by a low-single digit this week. Quotations for 1Gb DDR3 softened, with some vendors dropping their quotation to below US$2. Despite the reduced quotations, inquiries were still limited. For DDR2, some brokers started selling their inventory when average selling prices (ASP) hit the US$1.40 level, implying industry players are conservative about a sustained upside, the firm said.

In the NAND flash spot market, pricing for low-density chips continued outperforming overall pricing, backed by strong demand for low-density memory cards from white-box handset makers in China, inSpectrum explained. Whereas for the 32Gb multi-level cell (MLC) chips, a slight sequential drop was seen amid flat demand, the firm added.
