I think your view is pessimistic. DRAM is certainly a concern but I donít buy into the excess foundry capacity view. My detailed modeling of capacity versus demand for 2011 has utilization falling under 90% in Q1 due to seasonal factors but then running in the mid-nineties the rest of the year. ASP tends to follow utilization and with mid-nineties utilization I expect ASPs overall to be flat (worse case) to up (most likely) next year. My estimate is 10% growth.
