Intel to produce a batch of Apple's next A7 chipset generation
posted by Daniel P. / Mar 12, 2013, 8:26 AM
Apple is moving away from Samsung with the fabrication of its mobile processors for reasons not hard to fathom, but the bulk of its orders should be going to the giant TSMC foundry.
Still, where there's smoke, there's fire, and Intel is the 800-pound gorilla in the chip business, so it wouldn't be surprising if they get a trial run of at least some part of the A7 batches, since it is unlikely TSMC would be able to churn all of it, given Apple's sales volumes.

See, Apple? You are very lucky to have Intel with you, stop doing stupid things like SUING...

Apple doesn't need Intel rather Intel needs Apple.

Intel is a behemoth...but why do they lag so much in terms of smartphone/ tablet technology? with their power and resources they couldve easily topped the mobile arena.

Will that mean that they'll use two technologies then? Cause TSMC uses 28nm, while Intel uses 32nm and 22nm... I wonder which one will they use in the new chip, cause the 10% getting it can end up being either a bit unlucky or extremelly lucky :D

It doesn't change the fact..Apple always get sliced.....I think if Apple work with Intel doesn't make any growth of Apple,Apple will find other company like Nvidia Tegra cause Apple just want to race in Gigahert with Samsung and Motorola.....
