Memory, DRAW, forget it. Not in this age of Apple. I do not see the value in this business unless it is best to buy it from your competitor.

As daleste said DRAM is gonna very tough since flash is taking over it.. but ELPIDA shd come out of these bad times with some smart strategies.. since other DRAM vendors are still doing better,, i hope they will come out of these soon..

I don't know how people make a living in the DRAM business. I recently heard that a Gartner analyst said that in the history of DRAM, more money has actually been lost than made and that only a couple of companies (Samsung is one) are in the black in their entire history of producing and selling DRAM.

DRAM is a tough business. You have to be able to weather the low times and enjoy the high times.

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.
