Samsung increases chip production prices: GPU, SoC will become more expensive

Samsung said this week that it will adjust the pricing of its semiconductor wafers to fund the expansion of its S5 wafer fab near Pyeongtaek, South Korea. Just like its industry peers, Samsung foundries have problems meeting the demand for their services, so investing in advanced production facilities will ensure that more chips can be produced using its advanced nodes in the future. At the same time, rising prices may affect the cost of GPUs, SoCs and controllers produced by Samsung’s foundries.

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