People will believe what they want to. But looking at it objectively you can see that so few places actually produce the high performance memory required on so many devices. It makes sense that when Apple requests 80 million iPhones there will be shortages. I'm pretty sure it's higher now haven't checked since last year it was like 72 million or whatever. That's a ton of memory. And of course they get priority, they are a far bigger customer and money maker than the GPU segment.

That's one reason. You still have all the other phone makers. You have GPU customers, SSDs are starting to use memory as cache, consoles, OEM desktop and laptops and then memory sold by itself. It's an insane volume of memory coming out of FABs. The fact we have so little failure rates is impressive.

That would be correct, if it wasn't wrong. Smart phones are starting to plateau. It is not because of smart phones now it is because of all of the other things in life that require memory. The automotive industry, in car electronics, civic uses, home automation and so on. Even some heating climate controls use memory.

This is why China are setting up fabs all over the place, because even with Samsung at full capacity they can't keep up with demand. Not from phones but from everything. So they are going to start making it themselves. Which makes sense, given they are now an ultra power because they do all of the things we CBA doing and get other nations to do for us.

Mirrored glass on all sides, RGB Corsair logo on the PSU shroud, Proper 280mm rad support up top, A vertical GPU mount option and hex key screws instead of the pretty anodized heads on the non mirror versions of the case.
