DRAMeXchange’s prediction of a memory market in freefall has come to fruition.
As TechPowerUp highlights, prices on DDR4 memory have reached the lowest levels we’ve seen in years. An 8GB (2 x 4GB) kit of GeIL EVO SPEAR DDR4 2400 memory is currently going for $39.99 over on Newegg. If you need a bit more capacity, 16GB kits (2 x 8GB) of DDR4 3000 can be had for under $80. Optionally, you can grab 32GB (2 x 16GB) of G.SKILL Aegis DDR4 2400 for less than $150.
These are all brand-name kits albeit lower-end variants. Those in the market for faster speeds or kits with bells and whistles like RGB lighting can expect to pay a little more. A 32GB kit of Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR 3000 runs just $172.99 while the G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series (2 x 16GB) DDR3 2400 bundle can be yours for $179.99.
Similar offers can also be found on Amazon and other retailers; just shop around a bit before pulling the trigger.
Update: Here are a few other examples of attractive kits and two CamelCamelCamel graphs to paint the pretty picture...
Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB kit DDR4 3200MHz is $105 on Amazon, way lower than its peak of $220 about a year ago:
G.SKILL TridentZ RGB 16GB kit (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 memory is $130 on Amazon today, versus $273 at its peak on December 2017.
