At the start of the new year, the news of the complex mood for PC users came, with storage industry insiders pointing out that the price of NAND Flash flash memory chips will rise by as much as 40 per cent this year. 40% is definitely not an understated figure, and the 1TB SSD, which can now be bought by seven or eight hundred, may return to more than a thousand dollars.
Samsung Electronics’ DRAM/Flash Memory plant suffered an unexpected power outage on Tuesday. The power failure of the wafer production line, even in seconds, can cause the N multi-wafer to be contaminated and immediately scrapped. Samsung’s statement is expected to be 2 to 3 days fully recovered, the outside world now naturally NAND price increases and Samsung’s “drop” linked.
In fact, not only flash memory, MLCC ceramic capacitors, LCD panel sidonted and other major components of the price increase sound has been endless, further adding uncertainty burden to consumers.
From a complete point of view, sSD, especially large-capacity SSD has a new need for users, as soon as possible to start is a good policy.
