    China is the second biggest economy giant after the USA, so let's hope this is more than just empty words. It would be great if the USA did something, but I wouldn't personally expect anything from that direction, especially with the billionaire businessman as their president.

    From the article...

    "In recent years, China remains the largest importer of memory chips driven by its domestic and export demands."

    Would Samsung prefer the Chinese "intervene" in other ways and start pumping out "near identical" silicon (and not just DRAM)?

    Key phrase here is: "to protect dram prices, and to keep them within acceptable ranges pricing wise."

    It should read: "to protect dram prices, and to lower them within acceptable ranges pricing wise."

    Oh boy, I hope they aren't trying to "normalize" the current pricing.

    hehe funny how that also works with current hardware prices. Not just C...lintons.
    Anyone seeing the next iPhone coming up with just another 100 or 200$ on top for... "matching the rising market prices of supplied internal components"? :D
