Tom’s Hardware is reporting that Samsung is cutting NAND and DRAM production. Why? Because money of course. The DRAM and NAND market has basically been collapsing with 2TB NVME drives finally reaching prices that most users would consider acceptable. Samsung, which totally has never been caught price fixing again and again, is of course not happy with that. So rather than accept that prices are lowering and producing better products to encourage consumers to buy say 8TB drives instead of 4TB ones, they’re just cutting production to raise prices.

Just always remember that while many of these companies have good products, they are not your friends, do not have you best interest in their mind, and would happily extract every penny out of your wallet if they could.
