Description Contents
The market for graphics DRAM is currently in a stage of massive changes.  In 2008, the market was well structured with only three of the main DRAM suppliers engaged in this market segment, namely Samsung, Hynix and Qimonda with a combined market share of greater than 90%.  However, Qimondas insolvency in January 2009 has disrupted this oligopoly.
