Samsung to raise price of 128Mbit Notebook graphics DDR memory

Posted on Monday, December 29 2003 @ 22:58:50 CET by

Samsung is planing to raise prices of 128Mbit (4Mbitx32) graphics DDR memory for notebooks by over 10%. Current price is about $3.60 and the raise will be due to tightening supply according to DigiTimes their sources.
The supply of 128Mbit DDR chips is expected to stay short through the first quarter of 2004 as major DRAM makers allocate more capacity to flash memory production, sources said.

Samsung – the largest DRAM maker in the world – has reduced monthly output for 128Mbit (8Mbit×16 and 4Mbit×32) and 256Mbit (16Mbit×16) DDR chips by about one million units, according to DRAM maker sources.

Rising notebook sales and increasing adoption of 4Mbit×32 graphics memory have boosted demand for the chips, sources commented.

Worldwide notebook sales are forecast to grow 18% to 40 million units in 2004, outpacing desktop PC sales growth by about 10 percentage points, market research firm International Data Corporation (IDC) said.
