Apacer general manager CK Chang recently stated that pricing of 256GB solid state disks is expected to fall under $70 in the second half of this year, while pricing of 128GB models is expected to hit $40.
Prices for 256GB SSDs will likely fall below US$70 in the second half of 2015, while prices for 128GB drives will reach a sweet spot of US$40, according to Apacer Technology general manager CK Chang. With SSDs becoming more affordable, a wave of demand could be stimulated, said Chang.
Upstream chip vendors have migrated their process technologies to 14nm, 15nm or 16nm, dragging production costs down substantially. As a result, prices for NAND flash memory will fall resulting in more friendly prices for SSDs, Chang indicated.
