Prezzi delle memorie in ascesa
Su Xbitlabs è stata pubblicata un'interessante news che analizza ciò che sta succedendo al mercato delle memorie. Come è possibile vedere anche da questa news, infatti, i prezzi delle memorie DDR hanno subito una brusca impennata dopo che per settimane sono stati stabili o, comunque, in discesa.
"The shortages in the DDR memory market are about to stay there for at least 2 months, and it means that the prices will keep growing up. This conclusion is based on the recently made announcements of Nanya Technology vice-president and the latest moves undertaken by Hynix and aimed at the re-equipment of the production lines. Although Nanya is a relatively small memory maker with not very big market share, the problems they faced are typical of the entire industry. We are talking about the mass migration to the production of DDR memory. And the problem lies not with the absence of the chips, though this is also becoming more and more noticeable, but with the difficulty of the migration procedure. Everybody is modifying the existing SDRAM production lines for the DDR manufacturing, which of course causes the lines temporary closing. As a result the overall production capacities get worse, which leads to inevitable shortages. This way, the PC makers have no change to withstand the trouble, because they don’t have the DDR modules and also cannot get SDRAM modules as the production lines have already been stopped."
