Nevertheless, for some avid hardware enthusiasts, they still pay the bill obediently. Monitoring shows that in the past week, 15 sets of DDR5 memory have been sold on eBay, with prices ranging from US$1,099 to US$2500.
Taking into account the high price of the 12th generation Core, Z690 motherboard and the exaggerated market for graphics cards, DIY a set of high-performance PCs at the moment is really expensive.
It is reported that the main reason for the shortage of DDR5 memory is not the insufficient production capacity of DRAM chips, but the urgent shortage of PMIC power chips. In the early days, it was mainly provided by Renesas, and now Richtek, Amtek, etc. have also joined.SamsungIt even announced its own production of the PMIC required for its DDR5 memory.
