One company has already moved to DDR3 for its notebooks: Apple. Desktops are next. Memory manufacturers hope for a quick transition to DDR3, because DDR3 modules for PC's are priced about 2.0 to 2.5 times higher than DDR2 modules. As for "saving the DRAM industry," certainly not all of the companies should be saved. Forcing the weak companies out of business or into mergers, rather than being bailed out by governments, would help reduce competition in the industry.
