Hynix FABs on fire after chemical explosion

6 posts in this topic

World DRAM prices are set to rocket as news comes in that Hynix FABs 1 and 2 have been engulfed in a ball of flame following a huge chemical explosion.

Reports are still coming in, but the effects are immediate ? with memory prices already shooting up by 10% in the first hour after reports started.

This is one of the main factories for nVidia GDDR5 we are told, so expect a major issue for the green team with production and pricing.  That said, As nVidia begin to switch to other sources, so AMD?s price for Radeon RAM will also jump up.

Hynix makes 30% of the world?s memory in this area, and now it will lose half its production, so world production will drop by 15%.

I'm not surprise. We have a global economy now and everything effects everything else.

Gah! It's not that long ago we've made it through the Thailand flood and the resulting stupid cash grab, and here we go again.
