高通、展訊手機晶片猛降價 聯發科回防應接不暇

高通(Qualcomm)預估公司最新一季,包括營收、毛利率及獲利表現都略低於市場預期的情形,已獲得大陸智慧型手機產業鏈的證實,大陸白牌手機業者指出,近期高通已針對旗下 4 核心手機晶片報價再度作出折讓動作,最低甚至已跌破 10 美元大關,比起聯發科的 MT6589 手機晶片解決方案還要便宜,這種違背市場秩序倫理的情形,已帶給聯發科很大的競爭壓力。 聯發科在 2013 年第 1 季已進行一連串的成本降低計畫,包括晶粒面積再微縮、尋求更便宜晶圓代工來源及要求封測廠降價等工作,不過,面對高通在上、展訊在下,近期又齊一心志壓低手機晶片報價的共識,聯發科難免有點應接不暇的感嘆。甚至聯發科還認為,在主要競爭對手不是要守、就是想搶市佔率,而不斷祭出更積極的促銷動作,在公司降低成本的動作根本趕不上客戶要求降價的速度下。 近期高通針對旗下 4 核心手機晶片報價再度作出折讓動作,帶給聯發科很大競爭壓力。 符世旻 攝
