I heard that this is the conversion of the exisiting Flash fab to make all of Austin Logic.

@GoGoGeek- I believe that is accurate. We are trying to get further details and clarification.

Its a very strange condition and position of the two giant industries, at one end the fight is going on for patent violations and on the other end one company is fully dependent on the other for the basic needs of hardware.

@Stanley- the fab is certainly not only for Apple. The headline does not tell the entire story. Read on.

I don't know that Apple is fully dependent on Samsung, I wouldn't be surprised to see another source pop up on this cycle of hardware. Maybe the new processor will be fabbed in Austin and a slow migration of older parts to TMSC/Global.

Certainly not? The only thing that is certain is that the customer for autin fab chips is unknown. Apple could "certainly" be anywhere from 0% to 100% customer from Austin samsung fab. That is all that is certain because no one will confirm it or even comment on itt... not samsung or apple.

what a Business model these 2 companies have, fight for Design innovation, while sharing the Hardware Manufacturing. I think the reason why Samsung is still making Apple chips, it doesn't want to let it go TSMC or Global Foundries. Samsung has good technology and Apple needs it now,until they can trust somebody else. (Global Foundries,I am betting on it)

Samsung is defintely doing right things. I guess since they are into many different business areas they are able to retain top two postions.
