Once upon a time, one of the best ways to quickly improve system performance was to purchase more RAM. – Over the last 10 years, however, this has now undoubtedly transitioned towards SSD storage devices. Now, of course, more and faster RAM is never a bad thing. When compared to HDDs though, the upgrade in speed (and particularly boot times) offered on SSD devices is simply too good to ignore.

I often make the SSD/HDD comparison to gaming at a higher resolution. Once you experience it, you never want to go back.

Why are we talking about SSDs though? Well, if you’re currently in the market for either a new or upgraded storage device, then good things are apparently on the horizon as information from TrendForce suggests that big price drops on consumer SSDs are set to drop this quarter!

SSD Prices to Drop!

According to the source, there are a number of factors at play here that should, all going well, see solid state drive prices drop quite notably over the coming quarter. Firstly, there is currently a pretty significant oversupply of NAND memory modules meaning that the manufacturing stock situation is good. Too good in fact! – Secondly, an overall drop in consumer demand has also seen supply be significantly in excess of current requirements.

With this in mind, therefore, it is being suggested that SSD prices will (or at least should) fall by around 8%-10% this quarter. And just to give an example of this, the Samsung 870 QVO 1TB currently retails for circa £70. – By around October, that might be down to just over £60! No, not a huge amount, but when looking at more expensive models (such as 2-3TB variants) who knows, you might be able to use the cash you’ve saved to get an even bigger upgrade!

So, let’s keep our fingers crossed that this one pans out as predicted!
