DRAM contract prices have not shown any improvement with the price falling by over 10% for the last three consecutive updates since the first half of February. Industry watchers generally attribute the fall as a sign of declining demand among PC OEMs and note that the recent quotes for DRAM have edged close to that of production costs.

DRAMeXchange noted that the slump in DRAM contract prices reached almost 30% through March and the earlier-than-expected price decline signifies lower-than-expected demand from PC OEMs. Industry sources echoed the sentiment, saying that PC OEMs have already piled up sufficient inventory and the amount of recent orders is very limited.

The latest DDR2 contract price shows that the previous price correction has now made the contract price for the same specification DDR2 chip lower than the spot price. According to DRAMeXchange's March 7 quotes, the price for a 512Mbit DDR2-667 chip went as high as US$4.20, versus the US$3.87 contract quote for the same specification chip in the first half of March.
