At present, the industry is transitioning from DDR4 memory to DDR5 memory. AMD is about to release the Ryzen 7000 series processor and AM5 platform. In addition, Intel will also use Raptor Lake to replace Alder Lake. I believe this process will speed up. Memory manufacturers will also adjust the supply of different types of memory with the launch of the new platform.
According to WCCCFTECH, Samsung plans to adjust the production of its memory: First of all, it will begin to gradually reduce the production of DDR3 memory and reduce the inventory level of DDR3 memory. Secondly The cost -effective ratio, although from the perspective of manufacturing, this decline and speed is a bit "unreasonable"; in the end, it will increase the output of DDR5 memory and increase inventory. Samsung hopes that the industry can change the view of DDR5 memory and accelerate it to become the system system. The standard of the device.
Samsung is not the first time to implement this more aggressive pricing strategy. As the largest memory core supplier in the market, its strategy will directly affect the supply and price of the memory market. Generally speaking, this method is to make the market adopt new memory faster, which will be more favorable in terms of income.
In addition to Samsung, another large factory SK Hynix is also reducing the inventory of DDR3 memory, increasing the output of DDR5 memory in this process. However, some people in the industry are worried that under the current strategy and consumption environment, the growth of the entire DRAM market will become more limited. In addition, due to the high cost of investment, the upgrade of each memory manufacturer in terms of process is relatively slow.
