several reasons. One, smartphones have increased in both number and the amount of RAM they have, so that demand is driving up prices. Two, raw silicon wafers have gone up in price. There's much higher demand for those since not only DRAM but flash memory uses them, and both phones and computers are using lots more flash memory these days. Three, manufacturer collusion. It's kinda up in the air whether this is active collusion - where they get together and all agree to charge higher prices - or passive collusion, where they don't have an agreement but are all in similar financial situations where its more advantageous for them to enjoy higher margins instead of cutting prices to gain market share. Either or both is plausible and could be happening.

Anyone know when the prices will begin dropping back down?

So, if I'd like to upgrade my server RAM eventually (DDR3 ECC unbuffered) should I do it now, or will prices go back down later? Is anyone still producing DDR3 en masse?

Thanks.
The only thing I'm split on is that my old server is X58 (3 channels, 2 slots each) and I currently have 3x8GB in it. I'll eventually replace it with my current X79 board and a Xeon, but that means I'd either have a mismatched pair in one channel, or I'd have to buy an extra DIMM.

do you think moot will make a new 4chan for anime now that real 4chan's been overrun with people who hate anime and want to kick all the animu people off their own website?

it's a cartel, when they need money they raise prices.
