Fixed Memory Prices Breaking Anti-trust Laws

pcgamesn state that Chinese memory manufacturers have been fixing memory prices

“Samsung, Micron, and SK Hynix are all being investigated by Chinese antitrust regulators and could face a fine of up to $8 billion. That’s going to make the potential $400 million fine Samsung is paying out for some FinFET patent infringement look like peanuts…

The world’s top three DRAM manufacturers share 90% of the global memory market and are now facing allegations of price-fixing. Micron met with the regulators first, back in May, and Samsung and SK Hynix have subsequently found investigations launched into their memory activities too. This all comes just a few months after a firm in the US launched a potential class-action lawsuit against them for the same thing.”
