6GB DDR3 kits drop below ?100
Cheaper than DDR2
We took a look at current memory prices and DDR3 6GB kits are no longer a premium product as their price has dropped below the €100 mark. We are not taking about Kingston's ValueRAM line that has dropped below €80 a while back, as today you can buy some quality DDR3-1333 6GB kits with CL7 latencies.
You can choose between several manufacturers depending on your taste and all of them are mostly listed at below €100. For example, OCZ's Platinum Low-Voltage 6GB kit working at 1333MHz with CL 7-7-7-24 latencies retails at €87,39 at Mix-Computer.de. Patriot's similar Viper kit retailing at around €90, and Corsair's XMS3 1.5V kit can be found for €94,67. These are all high quality kits with lifetime warranty.
DDR2 memory, on the other hand, has slowly started to get more and more expensive, and some 4GB DDR2-1066 kits are now selling at over €60. These might have tighter latencies, but they are still working at 1066MHz and they are still 4GB kits.
Economy crisis has taken its toll on this part of the market as well and the prices of DDR3 memory didn't drop as fast as everyone expected but the industry trend is still present and prices of DDR2 memory have started to slowly climb.
