Submission + - Shortage of NAND Flash Memory to Affect Intel SSD Availability ->

fl!ptop writes: Peter K. Hazen, Intel's director of SSD Marketing has sent letters to wholesalers indicating they expect to ship twice the number of SSD drives in 2013 as they did in 2012, but it won't be enough to meet customer demand:

Even in the first half of this year, we expect to ship more than 2x the units in Q1 and Q2 than the same quarters last year, but it is not enough to meet our aggregate customer demand...This will also mean we will not necessarily be doubling output on every product line, but will focus output on the datacenter and professional client product lines to help satisfy demand on products that our customers have designed in, and will reduce the volume on products for segments that are more transactional in nature.

The NAND shortage came to light last year after companies like OCZ reported lower expected revenues due do insufficient supply. Price increases are imminent.
