While the upward trend slows down at the spot market, DRAMeXchange foresees the upward strength at contract market to likely persist through October.

eTT DDR2 had once spurred prices to $7.17 but was later weakened after the price rally. DDR2 512Mbit 64Mbx8 667MHz closed at $6.77, while the same-density DDR 64Mbx8 400MHz enjoyed a sequential gain of 1-2 percent and closed at $6.36 on persistent demand.

DRAMeXchange believes that they are likely to utilize the upcoming 1-2 weeks' time to consume this batch of pre-stocked inventory prior to new consumption. Spot price should depend much on the acceptance of price up and any possible upgrade demand should still spur prices up further.

Negotiation of contract price for 2H September is still underway. However, both suppliers and buyers have reached the consensus that DDR2 price should continue trending upward. DRAMeXchange estimates the sequential growth will fall in range of 3-5 percent with DDR2 512Mbyte 667MHz price believed to exceed $45. Furthermore, it reveals that contract prices should stay strong in Oct. with the anticipated shipment peak of PC during October and November.

However, as DRAM content per box has been keep rising recently, no critical price up will be seen in near future.
