Increased demand for AI workloads drives competition in networking chips.

Networking companies are competing to create chips that can handle AI and machine learning tasks. For instance, Cisco's Silicon One G200 and G202 ASICs are challenging offerings from Broadcom, NVIDIA, and Marvell. The demand for AI technology is growing rapidly, with global spending on AI predicted to reach $154 billion in 2023 and at least $300 billion by 2026. Additionally, by 2027, nearly 1 in 5 Ethernet switch ports purchased by data centers will be for AI/ML and accelerated computing, as per a report by 650 Group.

Record-breaking price drop on SSDs

Record-breaking price drop on SSDs

The prices of SSD drives are in continuous decline. The prices have dropped 15 to 30 percent and continue to decrease, according to tomshardware.com.

Drives with 1, 2, and 4 TBs storage space are now around 25% cheaper, with the average price for GB around 6 cents. High-performance SSDs (like those based on the high-speed PCIe 4.0 interface) are a bit more expensive, while SATA and PCIe 3.0 drives are even cheaper (around 4 cents for a GB). This makes a terabyte on SSD almost as cheap as a terabyte on HDD, which is an exceptional case in history.
