Samsung is working to meet future memory chip demand

Second memory chip line in South Korea

During the last year, the tech world has been suffering from a shortage in memory chip manufacturing. This has led to huge price hikes in RAM and even SSDs. In addition we have seen several high-end smartphones that required samsung memory chips. This situation has been pretty bad for DIY system builders since it was pretty hard find components at reasonable prices.

A few months ago, Samsung said that they planned to invest more than $27 billion in their second memory chip line in South Korea. According to the latest rumors, Samsung has decided to start with this investment. Although the investment and the expanding plan have started, these things take a lot of time. According to the analysts, the mass production won't begin until 2020.

Samsung's first semiconductor production line at Pyeongtaek began production in July last year and the first production line is still receiving investment. Once everything will be ready, we should see memory prices begin to drop back to normal levels.
