DRAM chip price-fixing!!!

Posted by rexdixon on October 19, 2006

Two former Samsung officials and a former Hynix executive are the latest to be charged in the Department of Justice’s (DoJ) ongoing investigation into a DRAM chip price-fixing conspiracy.

The probe has already resulted in Korean-based Samsung and Hynix, Japan’s Elpida and Infineon of Germany pleading guilty and paying $729 million in criminal fines.

I was just stating that other countries have been innovating lately. Well this isn’t innovation, it’s straight out of Tony Soprano’s playbook! Technically Speaking, I guess we can claim one up for the Americans; not exactly the way I’d like to see it happen – but – now we know why DRAM prices were up and down, with no rhyme nor reason in the past few years.
