Originally, there was speculation they would go to 3D NAND, guess not.

It's till interesting to see the ties between Samsung and apple are not disturbed even after the big fight about patent infringement.

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

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)

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.

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.

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