A power outage in one of Samsung's South Korean factories has reportedly damaged 11 per cent of the vendor's monthly NAND output, causing fears that memory prices could be hiked.
The incident has sparked fears of a components price rise, with sources claiming that the global supply chain could be affected over the coming weeks.
Despite the power reportedly being restored after half an hour, it is thought that up to 60,000 NAND wafers were destroyed.
