Samsung Electronics to Increase its DRAM Output
Source: Techpowerup   Editor: Helan   Update Time :2017/11/1 17:13:38

Samsung Electronics, one of the largest manufacturers of DRAM and NAND flash memory, is poised to increase its production of DRAM. The company is bolstered by expansion of two of its DRAM manufacturing plants, located in Hwasung and Pyeongtaek, South Korea. The company is re-purposing a portion of its 2D NAND flash line at its Hwasung plant to produce DRAM. The new production line will begin its output from Q1-2018. The Pyeongtaek plant has been seeing similar activity where DRAM manufacturing clean-rooms are being built on the plant's second floor.

It's only in the second half of 2018 when end-users could expect Samsung's increased DRAM output to have any effect on prices of PC memory. The PC industry is not the only consumer of DRAM, as a larger share of it is consumed by the mobile industry (smartphones, tablets). DRAM inventories have been under tremendous strain over the past three quarters, which have forced PC memory prices to surge by 80-100 percent and beyond.
