As we head into the weekend, a long one if you happen to wear the US as pants, it seems an appropriate time for some good news.  According to the Nikkei the demand for DRAM from cryptocurrency miners have declined significantly which could lead to better prices, though not a huge drop as mobile phone vendors and enterprise demand has not changed.  Even better news for enthusiasts are the reports of shelves filled with GPUs where once there were only dust bunnies and forlorn gamers. 

Things are looking up this summer!

"Orders for DRAMs fell noticeably in April," a representative at a Tokyo electronic parts trader said. "We previously received quite a lot of orders, even from companies with whom we did little business." Demand was particularly strong from virtual currency miners, the representative said."
