Chips force up system costs



The recent rise in memory chip prices has increased IT system costs reports market research company Dataquest.

In 1999, chip industry revenues exceeded $160bn (£98bn), up 17.6% compared with 1998.

The boost in revenues was also helped by price increases caused by the effects of the Taiwan earthquake. Intel continued to dominate the market, with revenues $16bn higher than its closest competitor.
