Hynix Suspends Operations After Plant Fire

It looks like Hynix has suspended operations at its plant in China after a fire broke out. The good news is that there were no serious injuries reported. The bad news, memory prices will be affected depending on the extent of the plant damage. frown

South Korean chipmaker SK Hynix Inc said on Wednesday it had suspended operations at its China plant, which produces around 12 percent of global computer memory chips, because of a fire. The world's No.2 maker of dynamic random access memory (DRAM) chips, which had a 30 percent of the market in the second quarter, said the China plant it has suspended produces around 40 percent of its total DRAM output.
