FUD Zilla claims memory maker Corsair is in bad shape. The site says the firm has lost lots of marketshare to OCZ and writes Corsair has fired quite a few people:
The company fired quite a few people, including some of the VPs, and at the same time it is being very quiet on the new product side. There haven’t been new announcements for quite some time, and it looks that the company is a bit shaken. The sales are not doing that well, either, and there has been some massive loss in performance memory market to its closest competitor OCZ.
Particularly in the DACH (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) market, it seems that Corsair lost a lot of support but there is a hope that the fallen memory manufacturer will come back with some stronger products in memory, PSU and the USB stick area, and win back hearts of the customers.
Memory prices, especially of DDR2 memory, are not helping as you can buy a decent kit of 4GB DDR2 for €60, and it gets quite hard to earn enough money by selling those. Even the DDR3 prices are way down and we hope that Corsair will get its act together and shape up.
UPDATE: Corsair responded to FUD Zilla's article and claims most of the article is speculation which was most likely fueled by one of their competitors. You can read the full interview with Paul Watkins, Corsair's Director of European Sales, over here. Watkins says sales of memory and PSUs are doing extremely well and states Corsair has undergone some structural changes to strengthen their corporate structure. He also unveiled some of Corsair's products that will be released in the next few months, such as 2133MHz DDR3 Dominator modules and 64GB Flash Voyager USB sticks.
