Default Large fall in Ram Prices??

Is there any reason why generic 512mg DDR400 sticks are now $55 each
and hynix 1gig DDR sticks are $140 each

?????

This is the cheapest... I have ever seen memory prices at... ever...


Edit .. the prices are from MSY...

my guess is an over abundance of the stuff and the dollar.

Thanks for the head up, ram has dropped big time and I didn't know it.
The cheapest I can find in perth is a PLE: generic 512MB sticks $62, kingmax super ram $85 or netplus: generic $62, hyundai hynix $88. None of them are listing cheap 1gb sticks though

yeah memory and even flash memory prices have fallen probably due to fall in US dollar against Australian dollar

i.e. http://www.powerinnumbers.com.au/ has a huge discount sale on flash memory picked up a few things myself hehe

there was a pre-warning at TCM site about 1 month ago, about RAM prices dropping, and good for that ay....its actually starting, hope that the XMS4400c25 is lower, best default DDR550 out so far.

Yeah, the drop is pretty drastic. At MSY, the Hyundai 1GB was $290 just a few days ago. Now it's $140!

good luck finding 1gb for $90

cheapest I've seen Geil value 2 x 512 (1gb) is $182 www.umart.net (25-03-05) which is good concidering it was around $225+ about 5 weeks ago

Just hope it stays this cheap for another few weeks

My question is :

With stock ram being so cheap , would you get a bigger kick from buying 2 GB of stock ram and overclocking to what it can , or buy 1 GB of top line ram for higher overclock ? I could have bought 2 GB of GeIL 3200 for what I just spent on 2 x 512 OCZ EL . Its got me wondering .

hmm.. TCCDs still cost a bit.
lol.

Perhaps it's time for me to get some DDR550 (although my top capable speed is most likely nowhere near that speed)
lol.

It depends on what you are doing with it though, while I haven't tested it, I would imagine that in most cases, the high performance 2x512 would be better.

Can someone explain, that, why, our prices have DROPPED in comparison, with an excuse of the aus vs US dollar, BUT US prices have gone sky high?

Crucial memory. They had 1GB Ballistix sticks, i've bought from $129US, then $149, $169 and they are now $288!!!!

WTF is with that, when our prices are so low? Also, any retailers that will deliver that are selling those Hynix Hyundai 1GB sticks for around $140-160

Exactly where is the cheapest ram? I tried to check out MSY but their font size is too small to read!!

Edit: Oops, didnt have acrobat installed.

512mb DDR400 Ram 3200 $62 from PLE. Then again... DDR2 533MHZ 512MB $109. Whats the performance diff here?

I wouldn't worry about peformance difference, I'd be worrying more about what platform your computer is to what RAM it can use in the first place.

What he said about the deliver part. MSY is good and all, but not to most of us.

Also as a little funny, I've been watching some auctions on EBAY lately and they're still selling generic 512MB for ~$80-90. Dumb n00b bidders.

Now that PCI-E is on all new mobo's and has assloads of bandwith, it's time for ram cards.
A simple 4 or 8x card with say 4-8 DDR slots on it that masquerades as a mass storage device.
Why?
Well realistically we dont need 3gb of ultra highspeed UberSoopaMegaTwinAlienWarp ram. A single gig of good shit and a couple of slower generic stuff would be perfect. Allow the OS to use it as a swap drive and your box can be overclocked, and not hideously expensive.
Ofcourse, it means you cant go SLI with your dual 16x mobo, but who gives a rats

I cant wait.

You do realise you can't use DDR2 RAM in a DDR motherboard, right? You don't want to be buying DDR2 if you can't use it

Yea, they arn't exactly new, been around for xt/at systems in the form of a plug in expansion card (ISA). Even the amiga had zorro based ones I think as well.

Modern computer system onboard RAM slots have been able to have great enough RAM upgradeability to not need them anymore.

I was thinking along those lines myself , I read on another thread that a guy used a seperate hard drive for page file use only , but since page files are only 1-2 GB it seems a waste to use a whole hard drive , and not only would an extra 1-2 Gb of dedicated ram take up less space but its also much faster . Is this kind of thing on its way , or are we dreaming ?



P.S. Eddie at Fluidtek has generic DDR for $55 / 512 MB , though anything other than pick-up can be a hassle . Custo's prices are probably about the same . Try staticice .

Probably hard to find them, I grew up with them, so it's first hand experience.

http://www.gifford.co.uk/~coredump/recog.htm

There's a rough guide to some old proprietry stuff. Check out the AT based one. The motherboard it plugged into most likely only had either soldered on or only up to ~1MB sockets for some RAM chips that were the same type of package as those on the expansion card, leaving that card as the only other RAM upgrade path. But there were some universal ISA slot cards floating around back then.

Where as today we have ~3 sockets with typically being able to add up to 1GB modules so expansion cards arn't really needed.

Can you imagine the performance hit of running a "RAM card" over a PCI or PCI-E 1X bus though?

I've got a seperate 4GB SCSI drive in my LAN machine just for page file....

Anyway, that's probably the only use I can see for a modern RAM drive in a normal desktop system and the market would be pretty limited as only the real enthusiast would buy one instead of using cheap harddrive space. Sure I'd like one, but the cost would be huge for the card itself, and the real peformance would probably end up not being worth it.

Sadly that is unlikely to work. SLI-on-a-card is electrically identical to normal SLI. It's pyhsically different yes, but the wires dont care what it looks like.

Well, considering the average HDD is capable of maybe 70MB/s sustained half duplex, and in raid it might reach as high as 200MB/s if you were seriously hardcore, even a 1x slot's 300MB/s full duplex (300MB/s in and 300MB/s out) makes that seem like a bad joke. The card I've sketched Should be capable of functioning correctly in a 1x or a 4x slot. In a 4x slot, due to its missing lane, it'd *only* be capable of 900MB/s each way. For pure swap space, that's more than acceptable and should, if the OS's caching is any good, come close to being totally indistinguishable from actually having that much extra ram.

Well for the most part I am dreaming. Though I have heard of some servers using addin cards for ram so it's not a totally forgotten product. It's possible such a cars would be made if there's percieved demand for it. I for one would much prefer 1gb of 400ddr and 2gb of 2100 on a card to forking out for 3gb of 400. It's a best of both worlds thing. You get your highspeed ram and an ultra fast swap.

Here's a very rough sketch I've done as a selling point. If anyone knows anyone that's capable of designing, or is in the business of mobo/ram, please, by all means, forward it.

I don't know if I'm following you correctly or not, but are you saying SLI on a single card does not work? Because they've got it working.

No, I'm saying that SLI is a PHYSICAL re-routing of the wires. Instead of 8 PCI-E lanes heading to slot1, they're redirected to slot2. This electrically makes 2 8x slots. Single card SLI uses all 16 lanes, 8per core.
Electrically 2 card SLI and single card SLI are identical, even down to the bridging chip.

Here's a dissection I just did of the Dual6800.

Ok, so you're saying that it wouldn't matter because either way the 2nd x16 slot is used anyway? I thought the whole point of single card was to just use the one slot and be able to plug in a 4x card into the other x16 slot.

heh I thought it was to make it possible to use SLI on boards with only 1 slot or to reduce costs of SLI.
It is possible that the other slot will work as 4x, though it means the main slot will be limited to 12x. PCI-E is very flexible and cool so this shit is quite possible.

PCI-E bus = 20 port 10/100 switch.
Cards = servers with one or more network cards.
Lanes = cat5 cable. You can run 1 or more cables to each server in a trunk.
This is awesome.

Anyway, Ram is cheap!
Someone make me a ram card!
Now!
Chop chop!

I just got a stick of the 1GB ram, for $140 from msy

It's not fantastic low latency.. etc but yeah its hynix chipped.

At the moment I'm running it another piece of 512, so yeah its running ok.

and I just logged in as OCAU overclocker and it's $195 for 2 x 512mb (1gb kit) Geil

So kingyubbo please provide proof of your $90 for 2 x 512mb and I'll gladly eat my hat

do we have enough samples yet to say this? Looks like I might be picking up a 2 x 256mb pair of new BH-5 to see how it goes

well statement true for UTT CH-5 versus old BH-5 not sure about new BH-5 you'd have to find out for us and also check your pms at i4memory.com

absolutely true, there are other companies like SanMax that are also selling BH-5 - bad stuff, quite a big disappointment. Its rumored that OCZ sits on a heap of original BH-5 chips.

Well this is fucked up. I bought the 1GB'ers at $290 each Bloody hell.
I went into MSY and they said stock won't hold for too long, so I say: STOCK UP PEOPLE. I'm personally going to go in there and buy up 50x 1GB sticks tomorrow, before it skyrockets due to the drop in DDR1 production.

Also, anyone who remembers the final SD-RAM days will remember the 512mb PC133's went from 110$/piece to $250/piece in a week - just when they finalised the move (in manufacturing) to DDR from SDR.

Anyone who is interstate & can't get to MSY, PM me. If there's enough interest, I might organise a group buy.

Yeah, my saved money for the past 3 years as a Uni student has had absolutely pittance of returns/interest from Commbank. So I'll dump it all and I should be able to afford ~30 sticks. 50 was an exaggeration. But the way I see it, it'll sky rocket & there'll be a shortage soon, so I can resell it on eBay in a few months and hopefully make my money back + more interest than Commbank has given me in 3 yrs.

The 1GB sticks are the Hynix-chipped sticks, branded 'Hyundai' on the MSY price list - which aren't actually Hyundai's... but anyway, they do have Hynix chips on them. On the standard settings, they run @ 200 3-8-3-3... but you can push them to 2.5-6-3-2 if you're game. I don't OC much, but that's all I'm willing to push it to (well, all I've experimented with so far). OCing doesn't help my internet browsing anyway

The X-bit labs article back on page 2 quotes JP Morgan as saying that supply won't ease until the 4th quarter. I'm more inclined to believe JPM than MSY

Ah they sound like my 2X 1GB OCZ PC3200 Performance kit 200mhz 3-3-3-8 stock but do 239mhz 3-3-3-8 at 2.8v

I don't understand your math.

12+4 != 20

16+4 = 20

Anyways, Does anyone know of the cheapest place to get kingmax tiny BGA from? That RAM is looking good to me right now. And it's got to be a place everyone in the country can get it from. No pickup only places, you all know the one I mean. That is unless someone is willing to pickup and resend to others.

If it's going to be cheap for a while now, maybe a cheap source thread would be good.

Just do it now. As I mentioned earlier, people are paying above retail for RAM on ebay still.

heh yeah well I was probably jumping the gun and assuming that they wouldnt want to totally disable all the 1x slots. Since 8x seems to be enough for a card anyhow, 12x (2x 6x) shouldnt take too much of a hit. Ofcourse this is all very wild speculation and totally off topic, but nonetheless that's how I arrived at 12x.

I didn't even know they had a .net site.

Anyways, I'd like to see what the price on the tiny bga kingmax will be once they get some more in too.

But it still wouldn't hurt to get a couple of sticks of generic 512.

Techbuy have listed Corsair TwinX2048 kit for $475 bux.

Think i'll be grabbing this, for i am running out of ram all the time with my system setup, unfortunately not sure how much they'll OC, but thats not all that important, coz running out of ram can make the PC run at the speed of a 486....

well, when you have all the bells and whistles of a windows desktop, dual monitors at high res, 80 processes, video capturing, encoding dvd's, picture databases, gfx editing, also games everynow and then, TSR programs, P2P client, allsorts of stuff, the list goes on.
All at the same time, coz HT can handle multi-tasking no sweat, just memory usage just gets hammered as more and more programs are launched.
