DDR prices have fallen by more than 10 percent on the open market. The pricing fluctuation occurred when Hynix Semiconductor allegedly dumped 5 million 256-megabit DDR SDRAM devices in China. Open market pricing for the DDR 32 x 8 fall from the $ 6.65 range to the $ 5.30 to $ 5.90 range, depending on manufacturer. Admittedly many were caught unaware and speculators further contributed to the price erosion by unloading additional product into the market rather than risk getting caught in a losing situation, resulting in a 10 percent slide in DDR pricing. Choppy DDR pricing over the next several weeks with the 32 x 8 fluctuating between the $ 5.10 to $ 5.70 range and 16 x 16 configured product to sell in the $ 5.65-$ 6.00 range.
