According to the source, referring to the message Taiwanese publication Commercial Times, orders release of processors Apple A6X got the contract manufacturer of semiconductor products TSMC. This step, the assumption that sounded repeatedly, must reduce its dependence on Apple South Korean company Samsung, which supplied the processors for Apple products a few years, as well as being the main competitor of Apple in the mobile market.
A6X processor used in the fourth generation iPad tablet, introduced in October last year.
Allegedly, Apple will get a trial batch processors from TSMC in the current quarter. In the future, Apple may order the release of TSMC 20-nanometer quad-core processors for the iPad, iTV and MacBook.
Recall, according to Digitimes Research, loss of orders Apple to release processors did not appreciably affect the work of the branch Samsung, as the South Korean company will be able to better meet their own needs at the expense of the released capacity.
