According to a report from Digitimes, SSD manufacturers are planning to raise prices by 10-15% on NAND flash, which would make SSDs more expensive. This is reportedly on top of increases to DRAM module pricing, which would make RAM more expensive.

Don’t panic yet, though: it’s important to note that this isn’t confirmed, and is little more than rumor at this point. But if you were planning to jump on that cheap SSD deal you’ve been scoping out, it wouldn’t hurt to pull the trigger right now.
If these reports are to be believed, RAM and SSD pricing could jump to where they were back in 2018, when it was ludicrously expensive to even upgrade to middling RAM or a small SSD. We just hope that if the prices do increase, they don’t get to a level where the average consumer can’t get into computing.
