Apple will consume a quarter of the global volume of mobile DRAM-memory

Over the years, Apple is one of the major players in the market of computers and mobile devices. Many companies see the face of the corporation from Cupertino important partner and try to establish their production facilities to the needs of Apple.

According to some reports, because of the release of processors on 20 nm process for the Apple company TSMC decided to postpone the start of production of similar chips from AMD and NVIDIA, and other vendors such as Samsung, SK Hynix and Micron Group, produced a reorganization of its plants to meet needs of the "apple" of the company. According to some analysts, in 2015, Apple will be consuming 25% of the global volume of mobile DRAM-memory, which is achieved due to the popularity of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, as well as the release of a new iPad Air with 2GB of RAM and a transition to a Macbook Pro laptops on memory LPDDR3 DRAM. To date, Apple consumes 16.5% of the total DRAM-memory.

It is worth noting that such a rise in the volume of use by Apple DRAM memory can lead to some problems. Firstly, it should force manufacturers to reorganize their production to meet the demand, which consequently lead to an increase in the cost of components.This may cause supply shortages memory for personal computers and slow the development and popularization of memory DDR4, which is currently only used on Haswell-E platform from Intel. If the popularity of mobile DRAM memory will continue to grow, we will see the growth and popularity LPDDR4 compared with DDR4, which will lead to a slight drop in performance for personal computers.
Despite this, the company Micron expects overall DRAM market share will decline, as most tablets still use less than 2.4 GB of memory, which has long been common for personal computers. General Supplies NAND will grow in 2014 and 2015, and the growth of DRAM is expected after 2016.
