Contract prices for memory products, such as DDR, DDR2, SDRAM and NAND flash, have rebounded this month as revealed by manufacturers and suppliers.

For the 256Mb DDR-400, contract prices went up by 2.3 percent to $22 while prices for 512Mb DDR-400/33/266 went up by 3.3 percent to $44. Several DRAM makers say the upward trend for prices is expected to continue until September due to the high season demand.
