There is currently a cartel going on on ram ICs. Once the chinese offered
the last american ram producing company( I forget it's name) to move its
production to China, ram pricing started climbing, the company is healthy
again and we are still seeing price hikes, so China is for once investing
in homegrown production. My guess it will be no earlier than 2019 before we
see prices dropping again.
