It's hard to imagine them "failing" to keep up costs when they have a pretty good track record of doing whatever it takes to compete.

Elpida's key problem is it lacks sub-6x nm technology. So it leaves chance for even Micron to overtake, not to mention Hynix and Samsung already ahead.

Unifying the Taiwan companies with Elpida technology was already impossible with visible government help, without the help it can' t be a viable possibility.
