Tons of rumors have been flying around here for more than a year and given Apple's secretive nature I suspect this story will be more speculation than anything for some time to come. That said, it makes sense Apple would want to ween itself from dependance on its archrival Samsung to make its chips, the secret ingredient of its products. TSMC and Intel are the logical choices.

So what about the A7, who makes it, what product does it go into, when ? Apple must come out with a Galaxy "killer" in both hardware and new apps.

I wonder who else Apple uses to make processors. Is this relationship switching from Samsung to TSMC or are there other chip makers involved such as Glofo?

If I were Samsung I'd do an Apple and just chop them. The Cupertino boys would get a taste of their own medicine. When you see how many suppliers they stiffed over the years it would be such a hoot to watch

If Samsung does that, the only customer it can get for its fab will be itself.

Most microelectronics companies know not to burn any bridges.

I'm not too sure about relationship with Intel. After all, Intel makes processor and very eager to get a chuck of mobile device market. In Apple point of view, Intel is not an ideal partner. With this in mind, I'm sure the "independent" foundry would have an advantage to strike a partnership deal with any MCU design house.

Is there even an A7, or is that just a rumor too?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
