Prices of mainstream 256Mb/DDR400 DRAM chips have gone up by 8 percent to $4.50 per unit due to a surge in demand of computer makers as school season starts this month.

According to DRAMeXchange, this seasonal demand will continue to push DRAM prices up, although they are likely to go back to $4 per unit at the end of the year.

Jeff Chang, an analyst from Grand Cathay Securities Corp., said, "We believe DRAM stocks will experience another upswing this week in line with a jump in chip prices." He added that active purchasing of memory chips from computer brands has pushed up spot prices on such chips.
