The average price of 1 GB fell to 6 cents

SSD prices continue to fall. Back in March, it became known that prices had fallen by 15-30 percent since January. Now the price has fallen even lower, as reported by the authoritative publication tomshardware.com.

Since March, the average price has dropped by about 25% for 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB drives, with an average cost per GB of just 6 cents. You can pay a little more for a high performance PCIe 4 drive, or a little less (4 cents) for a SATA or PCIe 3.0 SSD.

SSD prices hit record highs

The reason for the price drop is obvious: there has been a sharp drop in demand for NAND flash used by SSDs, and according to analytics group TrendForce, the average selling price fell by 15% in the first quarter of 2023, with a further drop of 8-13%. meanwhile, enterprise SSD revenue fell 47.3% in the first quarter.

Experts studied the market and came to the conclusion that now you can buy a PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD with a capacity of 1 TB on average for $ 50-60, and 2 TB drives for less than $ 100. The highest performing models, such as the Samsung 990 Pro and WD Black SN850X, cost around $85 and $134 for 1TB and 2TB respectively.

4 TB SSDs are available from $154 to $299 depending on interface and manufacturer.
