The association final month announced that it was expanding a line-up of 64-layer, 256-Gigabit, 3-bit 3D V-NANDs from servers to mobiles and PCs.
Data-intensive new businesses have caused a tellurian necessity in memory chips, that has been a boon to a South Korean tech giant, assisting it bind record increase in a initial quarter.
The high-demand will approaching continue going forward, as estimate powers of proof chips are flourishing during an well-developed rate that exceeds ability expansion speed of memory chips.
