In reviewing 2021 we saw memory prices spike in Q1 and Q2. In Q3 the increase in memory prices was less, as much of the supply chain issues were resolved. As a result we saw in Q3 DRAM supply to grow and prices fall. This trend we expected to continue in Q4. In addition, server manufacturers were carrying high levels of inventory which was creating a downward pressure on DRAM prices. 

As the year end approaches Dram suppliers, manufacturers, brokers tend to adjust their year end inventory further and sell their stock into the market hence forcing a downward pressure on memory products.  Currently the memory prices in December are at very attractive levels in all speeds and capacities.

Looking forward into the Q1 2022, the demand for memory may increase significantly as in gaming play-2-earn model becomes more widespread.  In addition there is a quiet transition occurring towards a digital economy. Memory is one of the key components that will help in this transition. 

We should also note that as we enter into Q1 2022, the Chinese New Year will be celebrated and much of China will close for a few weeks. With the current supply chain issues still recovering this closure of China may impact the Dram prices towards the upside. 

We recommend that our customers use the current December price drop to purchase upgrades for their immediate short term Q1 2022 needs.

Notes:
*RDIMM, also known as Registered Dual In-Line Memory Module, adds a register, which buffers the address and command signals between Dynamic Random-Access Memory modules (DRAM) on the DIMM and memory controller. RDIMM used to give better steadiness and scalability, ordinarily performs better compared to unregistered memory.

**LRDIMM represents load-decreased double inline memory module, utilized in servers that upholds higher densities than RDIMMs and contains a memory support (MB) chip. LRDIMMs are valuable in memory-concentrated applications in data centers, cloud & distributed computing and in high-performance computing (HPC).
