It was earlier this month there were reported expectations of memory prices coming down next year as Intel CPU shortages impact laptop shipments. Now there are reports that Samsung at least might decide to slow its production of memory chips, keeping the supply tight and therefore the prices high. This would impact more than Samsung though, but also SK Hynix and Micron Technologies, which also produce memory chips. If this happens, it will also mean these companies would likely cut back on investments in new equipment and materials.
