Senior Research Director Avril Wu and Senior Analyst Mark Liu at DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce, also provide developmental insights into the DRAM industry of today, and dive deep into the upgrade trends characteristic of next-generation memories, servers and datacenters. And needless to say, seats were full and responses enthusiastic.StorageFri, 31 May 2019 05:37:00 +00003252 at http://www.trendforce.comNext-generation Memories Have a Chance to Penetrate into the Market 2020, and Datacenters and Other Special Fields Are the First to Use Them, Says TrendForcehttps://press.trendforce.com/node/view/3246.htmlWhether DRAM or NAND Flash, current memory solutions are straining the physical limits of production processes, meaning it is becoming more and more difficult to keep on raising performance and lowering costs. Therefore, there has been much discussion revolving around Intel Optane and other next-generation memories in recent years, in hopes of discovering new solutions while keeping modifications to the current platform to a minimum or even leaving it completely untouched. DRAMeXchange , a division of TrendForce , holds that next-generation memories and current solutions have their respective pros and cons, with prices forming the most critical areas of opportunity.DRAMMon, 20 May 2019 05:18:00 +00003246 at http://www.trendforce.comYMTC to Mass Produce 64-layer 3D NAND Products By This Year End, Feared to Impact NAND Flash Prices Upon Expansion 2020, Says TrendForcehttps://press.trendforce.com/node/view/3242.htmlDue to frictions from the US-China trade dispute, China's two DRAM giants are showing clear signs of slowing. According to research by DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce, Yangtze Memory Technologies (YMTC), which forms the main bulwark of NAND flash development in China, will be mass producing 64-layer Xtacking 3D NAND products this year end as scheduled. YMTC's capacity expansion in 2020 is projected to impact supply and prices in the global NAND flash market.SemiconductorsTue, 14 May 2019 01:31:00 +00003242 at http://www.trendforce.com512GB SSDs' Price-per-GB Estimated to Fall Below US$0.1 and Hit an All-time Low This Year End, Says TrendForcehttps://press.trendforce.com/node/view/3238.htmlAccording to research by DRAMeXchange , a division of TrendForce , the NAND flash industry this year is clearly exhibiting signs of oversupply, and SSD suppliers have gotten themselves into a price war, causing SSD prices for PC OEMs to take a dive. Average contract prices for 512GB and 1TB SSDs have a chance to plunge below US$0.1 per GB by the end of this year, hitting an all-time low. This change will cause 512GB SSDs to replace their 128GB counterparts and become market mainstream, second only to 256GB SSDs. We may also look forward to PCIe SSDs achieving 50% market penetration, since PCIe SSDs and SATA SSDS are nearly identical in price.DRAMWed, 08 May 2019 05:34:00 +00003238 at http://www.trendforce.comWorldwide Server Shipments to Peak in 2020 Due to Business-Transforming 5G Technology, Says TrendForcehttps://press.trendforce.com/node/view/3233.htmlAccording to DRAMeXchange , a division of TrendForce , the global server market is predicted to continue growing in 2019, but under the pressures of business cycles and worldwide uncertainty, this year's server shipment growth has shrunk slightly compared to 2018, coming to 3.9%.StorageMon, 22 Apr 2019 05:42:00 +00003233 at http://www.trendforce.comContract Prices of DRAM Products Projected to Drop by 15% QoQ in 2Q19 Due to High Inventory and Weak Demand, Says TrendForcehttps://press.trendforce.com/node/view/3211.htmlThe latest analysis from DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce, forecasts that the ongoing oversupply will result in significant price declines for DRAM products during 1H19. Demand remains weak in 1Q19 due to the off-season and the high inventory level that was carried over from the previous quarter. Contract prices of DRAM products across all major application markets already registered declines of more than 15% MoM in January, and they will continue their descent in February and March. Regarding contract price trends in 1Q19, the PC DRAM market is forecasted to see a decline of more than 20% QoQ, while the server DRAM market may witness an even larger drop of nearly 30% QoQ.Consumer ElectronicsTue, 19 Feb 2019 05:12:00 +00003211 at http://www.trendforce.comServer DRAM Contract Prices to Fall by Over 20% QoQ in 1Q19 Due to Difficulties in Reducing Inventory, Says TrendForcehttps://press.trendforce.com/node/view/3204.htmlContract prices of server DRAM are expected to fall by more than 20% QoQ in 1Q19, steeper than the previous forecast of 15%, reports DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce. The demand outlook remains weak due to high inventory levels and seasonal headwinds. Moreover, uncertainties brought by the China-U.S. trade war would also lead to conservative demand.SemiconductorsMon, 21 Jan 2019 06:00:00 +00003204 at http://www.trendforce.comA Sharper Price Decline of Nearly 20% Is Expected for 1Q19 in DRAM Market, Says TrendForcehttps://press.trendforce.com/node/view/3201.htmlThe overall price trend in the DRAM market has been stable in December, showing no noticeable change from November, reports DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce. Clients in North America and Europe were taking a break during the year-end holiday season, so the quantities of DRAM products traded in December were too small to be considered in the survey of contract prices. With regard to contract prices of mainstream products, the monthly average of 8GB modules is staying roughly at US$60, while that of 4GB modules is around US$30. However, for both 8GB and 4GB ones, their monthly lows have already dropped below their respective US$60 and US$30 thresholds.SemiconductorsTue, 15 Jan 2019 05:58:00 +00003201 at http://www.trendforce.comNAND Flash Manufacturers to Cut Capex by 2% YoY in 2019 Due to Worsening Oversupplyhttps://press.trendforce.com/node/view/3199.htmlExperiencing an oversupply over the entire year of 2018, the global NAND Flash market continues to face excess capacity this year as the demand outlook for notebooks, smartphones, servers and other end products remains weak, reports DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce. NAND Flash manufacturers have slowed down the capacity expansion by cutting capex in 2019, aiming to moderate the oversupply by limiting the bit output growth.SemiconductorsThu, 10 Jan 2019 06:07:00 +00003199 at http://www.trendforce.com
