I have a feeling it's going to skyrocket very soon. This is the same RAM at the top of the picture above in July 2017...

Times have changed but something tells me these low prices won't last very long.

Yeah, I suspect it's a price cut war due to previously high prices.

The very end of that article is pretty juicy...

 

"But there is some hope for DRAM businesses. DRAMeXchange predicted that DRAM prices "have a chance to see a rebound in 2020 due to prices hitting bottom, limited supply bit growth and other factors." If they can weather the continued decline in memory prices throughout 2019, memory companies might once again know what it's like to see a prices trend upwards instead. We'll enjoy the reduced costs until then."

I have another 3200mhz kit loaded in my Newegg cart since seeing this post yesterday.  I keep telling myself, don't buy it, you don't need it.  But at $61 shipped for 2x8 3200 Samsung B die....well now.

Sometimes listening to your conscience is actually wise. I'd think really hard for some type of reason to buy it if you don't need it. Profit in the future maybe? Insanely early future proofing? The best gift a gaming friend or relative could possibly ask for?

 

I'm in the same boat. The RAM in my PC is mixed. It's always performed flawlessly though. But upgrading it is a bit of an issue. My motherboard only supports DDR4-2133 speed RAM. And I just don't want to get a new motherboard because it too has given me absolutely no issues in two and a half years. I got some of the best DDR4-2133 RAM money could buy back in early 2017. Hyper X Fury. And right now, in order to get a matching pair, I have to pay $90.00 instead of $33.00. Or, I could just buy a 2/8GB kit for $64.00 - $68.00 and sell off the mismatched RAM that I have now. But like I said, it's performed so flawlessly, actually upgrading it seems like it just won't do much. Plus I'd be getting rid of the highly expensive Hyper X Fury RAM. I kind of don't wanna do that.

 

It's definitely a conundrum. Might sound strange but my PC parts have grown very near and dear to me. They've just outperformed my original expectations so much.

Well 2133mhz to 3200mhz (speaking on Ryzen only) is an average of 10% or more FPS in gaming, and EASILY 20% tighter frame rates (lows aren't as low at all) from all of my testing (I have a B die 2133mhz kit in one R7 1700 rig and B die 3200mhz kit in another R7 1700 machine) and I usually look at 10% upgrades per $100 as feasible, so Im there (in terms of convincing myself its worth the investment using that as the key) but like you said, its not like 2133mhz is doing something wrong (I paid $90 per stick of 2133mhz in 2017 LOL...paid $92 for both sticks of 2133mhz in early 2019...same exact brand/model....$62 right now LOL)

 

I just don't feel like the floor can fall out from underneath the ram prices much further

Exactly. And if and when they shoot back up in price, in creeps regret. If I had a motherboard that supported higher RAM speed, 10% or more difference in fps and 20% tighter frame rates(the main reason I'm looking to upgrade) or not, I'd have ordered it Thursday. Luckily, I own an Intel CPU. RAM is RAM with Intel CPU's.

 

Depends on the game really...

I play a lot of GTA 5 so the upgrade won't make all that much difference(even though I do like the difference it would make in tighter frame rates), but it certainly will make a very decent difference in other games. I have BF4 and BF1 and a higher RAM speed would improve the game dramatically. However, those games runs so well on my PC, I just like sticking to what I got if you know what I mean. If I had issues, sure, I'd upgrade asap.

 

If RAM hits under $4.00 per GB, that's pretty much gonna make buy it whether I need it or not. It's an offer I can't refuse.

Which kit is that? I'm using 16GB 2933Mhz and interested to get something better for my 2600X.

heh...literally just got home and went to buy those instead (at a few bucks more - the actual kit - since they sold out) but alas...I was at work, loaded it in the cart but was to busy.

I dunno what else to tell ya' dude. I play games using 2133 RAM at 1440p above 100 fps with very minimal issues. You do what you gotta do.

Welp

I wouldn't know, I'm not the one that brought up a B die. I just pointed you in the direction of RAM capable of hitting a stable DDR4-3600.

Something to consider....while there is no doubt that Samsung B-die RAM is faster and provides slightly better FPS in games, there is a sizable price difference between standard RAM and the Samsung B-die RAM.  Is that price difference worth it?  In some cases, you can buy 32GB of DDR4-3200 CL16 for the price of 16GB DDR4-3200 CL14!  Just food for thought.
