As of the basic market principle, price fluctuation follows the supply and demand relation. One intrestring story behind this rule and the flagging pricing for the Nand flash market is that Apple manipulates the prices by asking for very large volume from its suppliers. And this cause mutiple vendors to ramp up the production in anticipation of large orders. It gets Apple very nic price but leaves manufacturers with a glut of flash chips. Hope the growth up of Android and replacment of traditional harddisk by SSD can leverage the market and make Apple stragety less tenable in the future.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
