[quotemsg=21434343,0,149725]The only downside is the consumer looses out. DDR4 jumped a lot in price. They should allow SSDs to drop to near HDD prices.[/quotemsg]
DDR4 prices jumped a lot because the surviving memory manufacturers have to recover the losses they ate while DRAM prices were low from over-supply and then end up in under-supply again once current stock is gone because there is one less manufacturer in the market. Low prices may be nice, but they aren't sustainable.
As for SSDs coming anywhere near HDD prices, increasing capacity on magnetic platters is still much cheaper and simpler than reliably cramming more cells in flash chips, so don't expect the $/TB to favor SSDs any time soon, if ever even if SSD manufacturers went non-profit.
