Goodbye: XPoint is Intel's best exit from NAND production hell

"Intel, or Micron, may well decide to try and buy SK Hynix before Samsung or WD-SanDisk-Toshiba does, and so gain manufacturing volume"

How on earth is the solution to overproduction to buy more production? Especially when the biggest cost is the capital cost of the plants not the raw materials.

If Xpoint is even as half as good as the hype Intel will be switching their nand lines to Xpoint as quickly as their market suggestions tell them too, if they are smart they could kill all the competition at birth, by pricing low enough to drive it out before they can achieve economies with their own products.
