You cannot be serious.
geee, what a surprise. I hope they look into nVida as well
Congratulations, you used words to say exactly nothing. I'm dead serious, I want to know what you think, and what did you mean by:
I mean I can understand the words, but I have no clue about your political and economic background, and this statement hinges on your background, because you can be suggesting any number of things. Believe me, I've heard the versions I offered in my previous post uttered to me so don't look so perplexed, those aren't my views, I was just guessing what you were trying to say.
Okay, but not in this Dram thread.
The price of RAM affects the price of the laptop. I bought mine a year ago and it was just before the refresh out of existing stock. The current version of that laptop has half the ram a lsightly better video card, and everything else is basically the same. It's $300 more.
I've been kind of ignoring this because I built my rig before this steady increase hit. This thread went and made me check newegg. I paid $174 for my 32GB PC32000 kit (4x8gb) and I thought it was pricey because DDR3 was still occupying a decent chunk of the market for cheap. It's now $458 for the exact same stuff. Dayum.
I understand where are you heading, you are thinking about a textbook perfect competition. But you should remember the conditions for a perfect competitive market:
1) infinite amount of suppliers (which doesn't happen in reality)
2) Given point N°1, none of the suppliers can have influence over the price and all of them are price-acceptants ( which doesn't happen in reality)
3) Homogeneous goods, all suppliers deliver the exactly same good and there's no product differentiation whatsoever (which doesn't happen in reality)
4) Perfect information, everybody knows the cost, specs, conditions, fabrication, etc; of the goods (doesn't happen in reality).
The market won't fix itself to perfect competitive prices if the conditions mentioned are not present. That's why you have market failures, such as monopolies, market power, collusions, predatory pricing, etc. As long as the market is not perfect and predictable, there needs to be a regulator who sets the limits.
Have a good day
I was heading for a tongue and cheek joke at the expense of advocates of a totally free market.
Damn, minutes of writing lost
Anybody who thinks totally free market is the answer have no clue about economics and/or history.
without a mole sammy and his buddies will gleefully continue to bend us over. last time micron was sloppy and got caught with his hand in the cookie jar. do you honestly think they will make the same mistake twice?
This is insanity!!!!!!!!!!! Back in August 2016 I bought 64gb of ram for my laptop: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 64GB (4 x 16G) 260-Pin DDR4 SO-DIMM DDR4 2133 (PC4 17000) Laptop Memory Model F4-2133C15Q-64GRS
I paid $259.99 for them at the time....it's now $650.99 LOL
Possible more pricing fireworks coming soon.
The Chinese government and their statist crony corporations seem to be the ones to blame, this go around...
Steal proprietary info, use it in your products, then get an injunction against the company you stole it from so they cant sell what you copied. What a serious dick move
Yep. Welcome to government controlled means of production where only the biggest donors get to play. And play dirty.
