The company had finally gotten into the black after 7 quarters of losses, closing of its US factory, and reductions in executive pay and positions. But though the market for DRAM will continue to increase over the next few years due to smartphones, gaming devices, tablets, ASPs will drop rapidly starting this year due to glut in supply. What is good for consumers i.e. higher DRAM content at the same pricing, is not so good for Hynix. So, good if the company’s shareholders can sell sooner rather than later.

Any DRAM company that needs to depend on external companies for support, is in trouble in the long term. This will leave Samsung as the only self-sufficient one.

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.
