DigiTimes has a paywalled article that alludes to a substantial increase on SSD prices. The excerpt says that major memory module manufacturers (Adata Technology, Phison Electronics, and Team Group) “are mulling a 10-15% hike in SSD prices and enforcing a limited-supply policy amid growing expectations that both NAND flash and DRAM chip prices may rebound.”
SSDs were supposed to drop below $0.10 per GB by the end of the year, but that report may no longer be accurate. The timing could be especially disappointing for enthusiasts who are planning to upgrade to PCIe 4.0 SSDs.
There’s also a second report about rising NAND and DRAM prices due to Toshiba’s June 15 power outage. That increase is supposed to be “short-lived,” however.
