Welcome to the sixth installment of our monthly server price reporting for 2022.
Since 2019, we have been tracking changing parts prices for RAM, SSDs, Hard Drives, and various CPUs. This data is collected monthly, and then shared on this blog.
Currently, all listed prices are from eBay, for used hardware. We focus on used hardware because these prices change more frequently and this gives a better feel for changes in value.
Prices as of June 8th, 2022
↑ or ↓ indicates if the price has gone up or down since last month Price — The lowest price to buy this part from a reputable seller in a moderate quantity, price as shipped to the US Availability —6 or Fewer ebay listings = low 7-19 ebay listings = moderate 20+ ebay listings = high
Last month we began showcasing graphs of the prior 12 months of pricing for one type of item. Going forward, we think this will be a better visual representation of price fluctuations and will hopefully help identify pricing trends on the aftermarket.
This month we would like to highlight the 12-month graph for DDR4 RAM:
Around this time last year, DDR4 Ram was twice as expensive as it is now. This graph shows the steady decline in price as time progressed.
As crypto mining had experienced a boom in interest last year, the high prices of RAM can be attributed to the sudden demand of hardware, and subsequent price gouging.
As the sudden demand declined, and availability returned to normal amounts, the prices slowly returned to standard MSRP.
At this point in time you are able to order all types of DDR4 (16GB and 32GB) for under $100 per DIMM!
