Dec. 22, 2022 /SemiMedia/ -- According to Tomshardware, Samsung will increase the price of 3D NAND Flash by 10%

In fact, the contract price of the NAND flash memory market has fallen by 20% in the fourth quarter, the report said. Samsung's price increase is related to YMTC being listed on the Unverified List (UVL) by the U.S. Department of Commerce.

The report pointed out that although Apple has certified YMTC's products, it has not purchased 3D NAND products from YMTC. Several months after YMTC was included in UVL, many PC manufacturers also suspended their cooperation with YMTC due to considerations of avoiding geopolitical risks, and instead purchased from other manufacturers, including Samsung.

The report pointed out that the impact of Samsung's increase in 3D NAND on the entire market is still unclear.
