Apparently Samsung provided the ARM core and did manufacturing of the whole chip, but Apple designed the other blocks.

The good thing about ARM is vendor independence for the core architecture.

If you mean volume wise, we are already there if iPad/iPhone continue to rise in acceptance. A 25% share of 1 billion handsets per year is close to all 260 million pc units sold which include AMD. If you mean will they prevail over Intel like Intel did over AMD/PowerPC, the power performance ratios will decide that. Right now the edge is for ARM. Here also is an interesting article http://mobilelocalsocial.com/2010/arm-the-democratization-of-the-cpu/.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
