This is the seventh installment of our monthly server price reporting for 2019.
If you’ve been following along, we’ve been tracking changing parts prices for RAM, SSDs, Hard Drives, CPUs, and a couple of GPUs. Typically this is done monthly, and then shared with WebHosting Talk and on our blog.
Currently, all listed prices are from ebay, for used hardware. I may start tracking more new hardware as well if there is a demand for it.
Prices as of 3rd October, 2019
+ or – indicates if the price has gone up or down since last month
Price Low* / Price High** / Part Name
$64(+) / $78() / 480gb Intel DC S3500 $179() / $245() / 800gb Intel DC S3500 $180(-) / $290(+) / 1.6TB Intel DC S3500
We’ve added another new product this month that we are tracking, the Nvidia GTX 1080 Graphics Card, but as always, if there’s anything specific you would like to see just let me know and we can add it to our list.
There seems to be a lot of stability at the moment in server parts pricing. RAM, SSD and HDD prices have remained fairly constant with only small shifts in pricing.
There has been very little price movement across the E5v2 and E5v3 models.
The most surprising change this month was definitely the significant increase in the prices of the E5v4 CPU models, with some increasing by almost 50%.
Price Low — The lowest price to buy this part from a reputable seller in a moderate quantity, price as shipped to the US
Price High — There is a reasonably large quantity of this part available from multiple reputable sellers for this price or lower, price as shipped to the US
Price for the lowest priced drive of this size, matching this model number or better in the same class. “Same class” would mean sata (S) or nvme (P), as applicable. “Better” means a higher model number than listed. Ranked from worst to best, Intel model numbers are 3500, 3510, 3600, 3610, 3700, 3710
