According to DRAMeXchange, the average price of server DRAM modules in this quarter will increase by more than 10%
DRAMeXchange analysts watching the situation on the memory market for servers that predict the growth of prices for these products in the current quarter.
According to DRAMeXchange, the degree of implementation of long-term orders recently dropped. The lack of modules for different customer groups feel to varying degrees. If an average of 80% of the orders, Chinese and Taiwanese ODM-producers receive only 60% of the ordered modules. According to DRAMeXchange, the continuing deficit will lead to the fact that in the current quarter, the average selling price of server DRAM modules will increase by more than 10% compared with the first quarter.
The cause of the shortage, analysts say problems with the transition of manufacturers to produce memory chips for a more subtle technological standards. The decrease in yield resulted in a restriction of supply. Samsung and SK Hynix has already transferred a significant part of the production on the norms of 18 nm and 21 nm, respectively. In the first quarter approximately 30% of DRAM for server memory modules, these companies produced the requirements.
