Samsung built A7 processor rocks the new Apple iPhone 5s

Samsung has provided many of the parts for the Apple iPhone and Apple iPad over the years; but this year, there were some who believed that Apple had reached an agreement with TSMC to replace Samsung as the provider of the A7 processor that drives the Apple iPhone 5s. But apparently that deal won't take affect until 2014...

Retard iPhoney, really iPhoney first the article it was not about Apple building the chips inside SAMSUNG's phone and second what about the Samsung own Octacore in the S4 (the Qualcom is only in the LTE related markets FYI), gorgeous 4th genetation super AMOLED diplay made by SAMSUNG, DDR3 RAM made by SAMSUNG, nandflash made by SAMSUNG so before you post something get informed you ignorant pr1ck so please zipp it and go talk crap when Apple will reall build even 1 of their own components that goes into their iPhone....

The Exynos that the A7 shreds in every way imaginable. Yeah that's Samsung proprietary property.

It's just typical ifans out in full force. The denial is very strong in thia article. All these links have nothing to do with Samsung manufacturing the A7. Ifans just can't stand that Apple doesn't do it themselves. Samsung making the A7 chip is like giving guns to apple cause it can afford to make it's own for the mobile war lmao!

luls. I dont think you read the article or the comments-just came here to troll (or look stupid) Nobody has any issues with the chip being made by samsung (atleast not in these comments). The point being brought up was everyone borrows from everyone. Also, read through the comments and see most people arent trying to flame and troll.......just a rare few like u. Back to the drawing board for you.

I like how tech guys try to use hyper car as an example but don't know jack about how even a simple car works

The difference is Apple sue other for basic design and use fancy term for other company technology and claim it as their own tech.

Never had anything against samsung designed processors. Apple implements it better than Samsung. All the software need to catch up to the super fast processors or would need better optimizations on android's part. KLP 5.0 maybe

To "robinlim85" FYI half of the components going into Samsung Galaxy S4 are designed, developed and build by SAMSUNG: Display: SAMSUNG CPU: SAMSUNG Exynos 5410 and Snapdragon SDDRAM: SAMSUNG Flash, eMMC nand: SAMSUNG BASEBAND Procesor: SAMSUNG RF Transfeceiver: SAMSUNG Power Management IC: SAMSUNG Battery: SAMSUNG Nuf said so next time you open your iPhone piehole get informed and read about the BOM

you mean buying architecture/design from other company mean self design? you mean SDRAM design was originated from samsung,yea right fanboy do you know what means by Nand architecture?samsung invented Nand architecture? fanboy Do u know Exynos is just a SoC,oh do u know what is SoC in the first place,you mean the ARM core in Exynos SoC is invented by samsung? maybe u not very familiar with google search after all,give u an idea,type google,type Exynos component,use google translate if u don't know english yeah maybe in korea and your country you can view it as own design,in other part of world,we view samsung as just a construction company,other people do the brain stuff,samsung lift the bricks and stick it together

Is that the best you could come up with: use google and use the translator??? Looks to me that Siri has left you brain dead, what do you mean by "WE", do not place a whole bunch of people in the same category as you, first you attack then you only remember the components you want in the S4 then now you making an arse of yourself by telling that WE SEE SAMSUNG AS A CONSTRUCTION COMPANY, get a life ignorant bum

And yes by the way if you type "google" into google search will not come up nothing about SAMSUNG u retard pr1ck, you are the one still have to learn about how google search works.... same with the translator, get out under that iRock

Last and not least I never said "INVENTED"!!! It is ovious that you like to put your own spin and twist on things but that is ok from a brain dead midget...

It is called sarcasm but this is way ahead of your intelectual abilities is like Yoda talking to Jaba the Hut

Today many CPU/GPU architectures are licensed. AMD, Qualcomm, Apple, Samsung, Mediatek, they buy licenses from other companies like Intel & ARM. So what's your point? However some companies don't have fab facilities to produce their own chips because it's very difficult & cost billion dollars to build a fab. Building a fab & shrinking transistor size is much more difficult than designing CPU architectures because it needs research in optics, materials & electronic engineering. But desiging a CPU architecture, you can do it in a software or simulator. That's why AMD gave up its fab and order TSMC & Global Foundry to make their CPU/GPU. Japanese & many other companies gave up their chip fabrication business because it's too hard to shrink transistor size & to compete with other companies like Intel. Samsung may be proud because they have their own fab. As far as I know, only Samsung that has mass produced 20 nm chip. The other, e.g.: Intel fab is still 22 nm process. TSMC is still 28 nm. Global Foundry is still 32 nm. Don't get me wrong, eventhough I'm talking much like this, I'm not a samsung fanboy.

Meanwhile, Apple deceived us again. Remember the M7 that they talked about? There was no M7 according to ifix. Lies, lies lies and hype
