Memory is already at insanely low prices, but lower prices is not a bad thing, right?

The price of DRAM is set to continue falling throughout the first half of 2011 - the wholesale price of a 2GB DDR3 module has dropped 46 percent since the start of 2010, from around $46.50 to $25 - it could also drop to as low as $20 before the end of the year.

This fall in pricing will continue due to a manufacturers being able to increase output thanks to the use of immersion scanner technology that improves yields in their fabrication plants and the unusually (that's weird) low demand for memory.

This is of course normal, as there is a huge supply of memory but low demand leaks to an excess of supply - which means they have to get rid of it, what does that mean to you and I? Cheaper prices of course.

Into 2011 we should still see cheap memory, which means retailers can bundle more memory in their systems and the price will still be very cheap, netbooks and notebooks also benefit from this too.
