SSD market may see a price war

Posted on Friday, June 20 2014 @ 11:40:12 CEST by


DigiTimes writes the major players in the SSD market are heading for a fierce price competition as they're all gearing up efforts to outperform eachother. This includes firms like Micron, Intel, Kingston, SanDisk and Samsung.
Micron reportedly has reduced sales of its NAND flash chips to other companies in order to support the production of its own Crucial brand SSDs and aims to double its SSD shipments quarter on quarter, the sources noted, citing a company internal estimate.

Kingston has ramped up its SSD shipments to 600,000 units a month and is competing with SanDisk and Samsung for the number one vendor ranking in the segment, said the sources.

Intel has recently launched its new 9-series chipsets that feature native support for M.2 SSDs, which is likely to encourage other memory storage firms to roll out related SSDs in the second half of 2014. M.2 SSDs support both PCIe and SATA interfaces and have a strong possibility of replacing 2.5-inch SATA SSDs, according to Digitimes Research.
