Digi Times is reporting that Samsung is going to impose quotas on DRAM supplies as it moves some production efforts onto NAND flash memory. Apparently, Samsung aren't the only ones.It is worth noting that Samsung's Taiwain office knew nothing about the quota, so we'll have to wait and see on this one. RAM prices are pretty good now, though. So, if you're planning on upgrading your memory, it might be wise to do it sooner rather than later.The sources claim DRAM will be in serious short supply in the second half of the year as two other major players, Hynix Semiconductor and Powerchip Semiconductor Corporation (PSC) will cut DRAM output to allocate capacity to NAND flash production.
Contract prices for DRAM stand a good chance of rising 5-10% in July, the sources added.
