SanDisk Is Cutting Retail PricingSounds like SanDisk will be cutting it’s pricing for NAND memory very soon.Â SanDisk leads global market share for flash memory at a tune of about 40%.Â Kingston is another major player, and a couple weeks ago announced a major price reduction in it’s retail supply chain. Seems the SanDisk news is their answer to the situation. SanDisk mainly partners with chipmaker Toshiba while Kingston secures its supplies from more diversified sources. One reasion might be that major NAND flash vendors are gearing up for mass production built using their newer node processes in mid 2012. Samsung Electronics and Toshiba are set to advance to 21nm and 19nm, respectively, and so are Hynix Semiconductor and Micron Technology to their respective 20nm processes.
