Analyst VP Avril Wu said that notebook shipments in the third quarter didn't reach expectations, with the Windows 10 free upgrade hitting potential sales of new notebooks.
She added that sales of smartphones and servers were not much chop either and this eroded the margins of DRAM suppliers.
"If the global economy continues to stagnate, the end market will not generate the demand needed to effectively consume the new DRAM chips produced on advanced processes," she muttered.
After shuffling her Tarot cards and chewing on a laurel leaf she predicted that prices will continue decline in the first half of next year in a way which is even worse than 2015.
Samsung, SK Hynix and Micron rule the DRAM market and they are moving production of the chips to 17 nanometres, meaning higher densities and better power efficiency next year. If the figures are this pants it will make their investment in the technology pretty wasted.
