Is this something to be scary about? As I remember it was predicted that the chip sales are going to slowdown in the last quarter of this year and early next year. I think 2011 can also be a bit bumpy. Any other opinion?

To @double-o-nothing...feast and famine has been a trademark of this commodity memory market as far as I remember (and I am not that young ;-)...major players always think the only way to survive is to increase the capacity as much as possible in good times and squeeze out smaller guys in bad times...this will continue until 2-3 global players remain standing...Kris

People were already smarter about supply and this still happened. Very scary.

The news is as expected, but how will this end? Will the slowdown trigger a collapse of the entire semi industry?

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.
