Tried to get 16GB for my Rayzen CPU... It was like $160... Last time I bought memory ram 8G, it was $32. What the hell is going on?

8GB of ram for $32 had to be DDR3?

I paid $99 for 32GB DDR4 in February 2016 as part of a great deal.

As far as high prices I have heard part of it is a lot of fab time is being dedicated to SSD production as well as not over producing like what happened in DDR3.

I just posted elsewhere about the cost of various items this year. It's not just DDR4. Laptops, appliances, clothes, tools, all overpriced this year.

BTW, don't forget (and if you don't know definitely google it) that the tech manufacturing companies not that long ago were investigated and fined by the federal government for price fixing and collusion, most egregiously in regards to LCD screens...

fed says there is no inflation Roll Eyes (Sarcastic). too bad ddr4 ram cant be shrink like oreo (same price but smaller package)

joke aside, it is probably price fixing. no way ddr4 ram manufacturing all shift to mobile or laptop, because it cost about about $100 for 8gb and $200 for 16gb ddr4 now. unless laptop or mobile memory can fetch same amount ($100 for 8gb and $200 for 16gb), economic
101 says manufacturing should shift back to ddr4 ram.

in other hand, if laptop and mobile memory can fetch same amount, then total cost of laptop and mobile device should go up which i dont believe is the case. so there is price fixing in ddr4 ram.
