The wheels are turning in the RAM market today. Nanya & Micron have just inked a deal to toss over $1 billion into a new joint venture. This deal left Qimonda, Nanya’s former partner in a bit of a pickle, so they did what any good company does when a contract isn’t renewed: they found a new partner. Qimonda will team up with Winbond in a similar venture to the Nanya/Micron deal. All the moving & shaking in the memory world has left lots of questions on analysts lips as they attempt to figure out what happens now to the former tech roadmaps from the now defunct partnerships.
