This is not a drill, those are real dollars you're losing

What is six weeks of production worth? That's what ASMC says it will lose after a power outage at the company's Shanghai fab. Back in March, when Samsung lost power at six fabs in Giheung, South Korea, to a faulty switchboard, all six were back online within a day or so. I don't know what accounts for the difference between the two, but I would say Samsung's superior disaster preparation paid for itself.
