Samsung Hikes Chip Production Prices: GPUs, SoCs Set to Get More Expensive

Samsung said this week that it would adjust pricing of its semiconductor wafers in a bid to finance expansion of its S5 fab near Pyeongtaek, South Korea. Just like its industry peers, Samsung Foundry has issues meeting demand for its services, so investing in an advanced production facility is set to ensure that it will be able to produce more chips using its advanced nodes in the future. Meanwhile, the price hikes could affect costs of GPUs, SoCs, and controllers produced by Samsung Foundry. 

“[Samsung Foundry] will accelerate growth by expanding Pyeongtaek S5 Line capacity and by adjusting pricing to enable future investment cycles,” said Ben Suh, senior vice president of investor relations at Samsung, during the company’s earnings call with analysts and investors (via SeekingAlpha and eeNews Europe).
