  • TrendForce Finds x86 Processors Continues to Corner Server Market This Year With Global Shipment Share Estimated at 96%
    10-05-2017 / Mark Liu
    DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce, estimates that 96% of all server CPUs shipped worldwide this year will be based on the x86 architecture. On the other hand, the ARMv8 architecture is expected to represent only around 1% of the total annual shipments of server CPUs. The market growth of ARMv8 products is constrained by their limited applications within the server market and the high degree of customization necessary for the development of solutions. [ more ]
  • TrendForce Says NAND Flash Market to Regain Balance in 2018 with Annual Bit Supply Growing by 42.9%
    09-27-2017 / Alan Chen
    Demand has exceeded supply in the global NAND Flash market for six consecutive quarters since the third quarter of 2016, according to the latest research from DRAMeXchange, division of TrendForce. During this 2017, NAND Flash demand continues to expand because of the increase in average memory content of smartphones and the strong server market. At the same time, the growth in NAND Flash supply has been constrained by the pace of the major suppliers’ respective technology migrations, which in general have been slower than anticipated.

  • Server Shipments for 2H17 to Grow by 10% vs. 1H17 as ODM Orders Bounce Back, Says TrendForce
    07-12-2017 / Mark Liu
    Global server shipments fell in the first quarter of 2017 due to the seasonal effect on demand, according to the latest server market analysis by DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce. However, shipments rebounded in the second quarter and rose by about 10% compared with the first quarter. Looking ahead, DRAMeXchange estimates that total shipments for the second half of 2017 will also increase by 10% compared with the first half owing to demand from major technology companies including Google, Amazon, Facebook and Microsoft.

  • 1Q17 NAND Flash Revenue Dipped Only 0.4% vs. Prior Quarter as Undersupply Continues to Sway the Market, Says TrendForce
    06-01-2017 / Alan Chen
    The NAND Flash market remained in undersupply in the first quarter of 2017 as it had been in the preceding quarter, according to the latest report from DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce. Despite seasonality, the average contract price of NAND Flash chips in the channel market actually surged by 20~25% in the first quarter compared with last year’s fourth quarter. Also, prices of mobile storage products such as eMCP, eMMC and UFS are still climbing. NAND Flash suppliers therefore can expect positive revenue outlook for the entire 2017. [ more ]
  • TrendForce Reports Intel Took First Place in Enterprise-Grade SSD Shipments Worldwide for This First Quarter; Samsung Followed Closely in Second Place
    05-25-2017 / Alan Chen
    Global shipments of enterprise-grade SSDs for the first quarter of 2017 grew against seasonal headwinds by 3~4% compared with the prior quarter to reach around 6 million units, says DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce. For the same quarter, enterprise-grade SSDs also represented more than 10% of the total SSD product shipments worldwide. Currently, U.S.-based Google, Facebook and Microsoft and China’s Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent all have voracious appetite for server systems as they are providing their services via their growing network of data centers. These companies therefore are contributing substantially to the global demand for enterprise-grade SSDs. [ more ]
  • TrendForce Says More Than Half of Global Server Demand Will Come From Data Centers in 2020 and Intel Will Be Long-Term Leader of Server Processors
    05-17-2017 / Mark Liu
    Intel continues to dominate the market for mainstream server processors during this year’s first half with its global market share currently at above 90%, reports DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce. Though AMD and Qualcomm transitioned to the more cutting-edge manufacturing technologies such as the 14nm and the 10nm processes for their server solutions towards the end of last year, they will not be able to expand their market shares significantly in the short term. Intel’s competitors are still behind in developing third-party hardware and software support. [ more ]
  • Intel Aims to Keep Its Lead in Server Storage Market With Optane SSD DC P4800X Series, TrendForce Reports
    04-12-2017 / Alan Chen
    Intel has made waves in the server SSD market with the reveal of its Optane SSD DC P4800X Series this March. Based the company’s in-house 3D XPoint memory, the DC P4800X Series is scheduled for shipments in the second half of 2017. “3D XPoint greatly outperforms NAND Flash and will help Intel reinforce its leading position in the high-end segment of the SSD market that has become increasingly competitive,” said Alan Chen, senior research manager of DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce. “In the future, the product roadmap of 3D XPoint could include client-grade SSDs and storage-class memory (SCM) devices. Intel naturally wants to expand the adoption of this technology in other areas as to create flexibility in pricing and consumption of in-house production capacity.” [ more ]
  • Increasing Usage of Data Centers to Increase Annual Global Server Shipments by 3.8% for 2017, Says TrendForce
    03-15-2017 / TrendForce
    The growing user base of smart handheld devices and the expansion of Internet-based services for these devices have generated enormous demand for cloud computing and cloud storage businesses in the recent period. Correspondingly, the usage of data centers are also on the rise worldwide. Taking account of these trends, the latest server market analysis by DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce, estimates an annual global shipment growth of about 3.8% for 2017. [ more ]
