OCZ has announced plans to begin eliminating the production of its low-margin DRAM modules.
The Wall Street Journal reports that OCZ will begin focusing on ‘higher-margin specialty and high-performance memory products’ which is a veiled way of saying SSDs. The report indicates that the company will however still continue to pursue the DRAM market, just with a trimmed out product line that is “profit conscious”.
In the report, OCZ indicated that while its “commodity DRAM products accounted for 70% of DRAM revenue, margins have been less than 3%.”
This announcement also comes on the heels of OCZ’s expansion into enterprise solid state drive solutions for Silicon Graphics International’s (SGI) supercomputing solutions and Rackable Servers.
