Samsung to sell half of its processors to Apple in 2011

Samsung to sell half of its processors to Apple in 2011
There is nothing better than to benefit from your rivals, and it seems this is exactly what Samsung is thinking, since a report from South Korea says Sammy is to sell half of the processors it is making to Apple - or 20 000 sheets a month.

Take into account this is an unconfirmed report, but if true, it would mean the Korean manufacturer will ship more processors to Apple than to its own mobile division. The unnamed source states:

"Samsung has agreed with Apple to quadruple monthly shipments of its mobile AP chips to 20,000 sheets throughout this year from 5,000 last year."

When it comes to processors, the Galaxy S maker means business (more info can be found in our dedicated article on chipsets), and it's reported that Samsung is building a chip factory worth $3.6 billion in Austin, Texas to boost its production rates.
