Media: Intel will produce chips for iPhone 6s and iPad Air 3




Everyone is aware of the strong dependence of Apple accessories Samsung. But the Cupertino-based company is trying to deal with it, and one of the allies of the corporation may be the company Intel.


Recently, industry sources actively discussed Globalfoundries intention to compete for orders of Apple’s release of processors generation A9, which must be produced using FinFET-structures technological standards “thin” 20 nm. Globalfoundries competitors in this case could come TSMC and Samsung.

According to the newspaper Barron’s, referring to one of the industry experts at TSMC and Samsung there are some technological problems with the development of three-dimensional semiconductor structures, and it will force Apple to seek help from Intel, which in this area has progressed further. In other words, the release of processors Apple mobile company’s next generation – iPhone 6s, iPad Air 3, iPad mini 4 – can be adjusted at the production facilities of Intel.

Of course, Apple processors in some sense are competitors for the products Intel, but the manufacturer of the iPhone and iPad is a major customer, which neglected the interests of economically unfeasible. In addition, the chip maker currently interested in expanding range of clients, so ignore the candidacy of US giant computer electronics it would be imprudent.


Earlier, expert Semiconductor Robert Maire said that Apple is ahead of Intel’s processors and the art of designing a more efficient use to achieve the semiconductor industry. Maire made ​​such conclusions by examining the characteristics of the new generation processor A8, used in iPhone and iPhone 6 6 Plus .
