Computer RAM Memory Prices 2007-2018

The prices for memory used in desktop computers has been relatively high for the past couple years and is now starting to come down.   I was curious what the longer term trend has been. 

I made a chart showing the prices of computer memory over the period 2007 to 2018.   Prices are in $ / MB.

Note that the specific memory technology and speed has changed over time so the memory is also faster.    e.g. back in 2007 you might be buying DDR2-800 and today it is probably DDR4-2666
