  • 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 ]
  • Intel Acquires Mobileye in Anticipation of First Major Wave of Sales for Self-Driving Cars in 2021, Says TrendForce
    03-14-2017 / TrendForce
    Intel on March 13 announced that the company will purchase Mobileye, a global provider of advanced driver assistance system (ADAS). This deal is worth US$15.3 billion and is another indication that major semiconductor manufacturers are aggressively jockeying for a favorable position in the fast growing automotive electronics market. TrendForce states that after the merger, Intel will be able to combine its hardware products such as high-performance computing chips and IoT solutions with Mobileye’s image processing algorithms for autonomous driving systems. The deal gives Intel’s the potential to develop an autonomous driving solution that incorporates cloud computing. Furthermore, the deal strengthens Intel’s collaboration with BMW to bring self-driving cars to the market in 2021, when first wave of sales for such vehicles is anticipated to take place in major auto markets worldwide.

  • TrendForce Says NAND Flash Revenue Grew 17.8% Sequentially in Fourth Quarter of 2016 as Supply Shortage Reached Its Most Severe Phase
    03-07-2017 / Sean Yang
    In the fourth quarter of 2016, the NAND Flash market was at its most severe phase of shortage for the year while shipments in the end device markets were robust. Consequently, average sales prices (ASPs) of NAND Flash products rose significantly, and the fourth-quarter global NAND Flash revenue registered a large sequential increase of 17.8% even with the strong third-quarter result as the base. NAND Flash suppliers made a strong finish to 2016 as their profits also peaked in the final quarter. [ more ]
  • Global NAND Flash Revenue Rose 19.6% Sequentially in Third Quarter as Demand Outpaced Supply, According to TrendForce
    12-01-2016 / Sean Yang
    Prices of NAND Flash rose in the third quarter as smartphone makers continued to generate robust demand for related products and the technological transition from 2D-NAND to 3-NAND manufacturing reduced the industry’s overall output. The latest report from DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce, finds that the revenue of the global NAND Flash industry grew 19.6% sequentially in the third quarter. At the same time, NAND Flash suppliers made larger gains in respective their operating margins compared with the prior quarter. [ more ]
  • TrendForce Reports Gradual Stabilization of NAND Flash Market With Global Revenue Rising 3.4% Sequentially in Second Quarter
    09-13-2016 / Sean Yang
    In the second quarter of 2016, demand for high-capacity eMMC/eMCP from Chinese smartphone brands and the stock-up activities ahead of the iPhone 7 release caused a gradual tightening of NAND Flash supply. The decline in contract prices for eMMC and SSDs of both client and enterprise grade also started to ease during the same period, according to the latest report from DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce. Channel prices of NAND Flash wafers have even begun to rise on a monthly basis since April. Consequently, the combined global revenue of branded NAND Flash suppliers increased 3.4% sequentially in the second quarter. This result signaled the end of revenue decline that persisted in the past two consecutive quarters. [ more ]
