    ProMOS and Powerchip have both sold off fabs recently as well. Quite why they are even in DRAMs with those market shares is beyond my understanding. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Winbond do the same.

    Only Samsung is profitable I believe, Nick, and although in bankruptcy protection, Elpida is still producing. The calculation is that ff there is no reduction in Elpida’s output DRAM ASPs will rise 8.5% this year; if more than 25% of Elpida’s capacity is taken offline then DRAM ASP will rise 15% this year; if all production at Elpida ceases, then the DRAM industry’s supply could balance demand. But who knows, the DRAM-makers have an infinite capacity for building over-capacity.

    Any of them making a profit?
    And will be interesting to see what happens after the Elpida bankruptcy.
