Apple would have a quad core processor only at the end of 2013
To date, there are several mobile phones with Quad-core central processors, like the Samsung Galaxy S III, direct competition to recently launched iPhone 5. That is why many Apple customers are expecting the company to rule on the possibility of releasing a chip of this kind, as the company has developed its own internal platforms that give life to their mobile devices.
But fans will have to wait, because as reported, Apple would have prepared CPU designs at 20nm quad-core for its realization only at the end of 2013, at which point it will begin mass production of the new product. And is that the month of August 2012 began development, pending the month of November 2012 for the first tests of its manufacture, which will instruct the Taiwanese company TSMC, which also provides industry greats such as NVIDIA and AMD.
Point aside, an interesting deduction that arises from this information that if true, means that Samsung will no longer microprocessors to Apple, it will enter its replacement TSMC, solving a problem for people in Cupertino as they are engaged in a series of lawsuits with Samsung, as well as being its main competitor in the mobile area.20 nm, 20nm, A6, a6x, a7, Apple, apple a6, apple a6x, apple a7, four cores, Quad-core, quadcore, TSMC
