Samsung-made chip confirmed in Apple's iPhone 5S

The two big giants or the big competetors of digital industry are really the Competetors or it is just a thing to show.

Japan Nikkei analysis offered eveidences that Samsung A7 procesor is being used by Apple for its latest iPhones 5S, iPad Air, iPad Mini Retina.

The results of an earlier Nikkei Electronics' analysis were published in Monday's Nihon Keizai Shimbun, Japan's largest business daily. The analysis showed a Samsung-manufactured A7 processor inside the 5S.It cleary shows that at chip level, their relations will never going to end.

This follows analysis done in September by Chipworks that also showed a Samsung-made A7.


Heads up Apple, here comes 64-bit Android on Intel

Apple said to be pointing to Global Foundries for chip making.The A7 is Apple's newest processor that is used in the iPhone 5S, iPad Air, and iPad Mini Retina. It is the first 64-bit processor to be used in a consumer smartphone.

Nikkei Electronics, again echoing Chipworks analysis, said the A7 is built on Samsung's 28-nanometer manufacturing process -- more advanced than the 32-nanometer Samsung process used for the older A6 chip.

The publication found a dual-core CPU (central processing unit) and quad-core GPU (graphics processing unit). The latter is based on a design from Imagination Technologies.

Above all, shows clearly that big giants have rooted relationships but will this relationship helpful for people who are buying their devices.

Will this relation going to be continue, and make their customers befooled or viceversa a clearly different show of technology, to make people amused.

The moral of the story is that it is very difficult to wind down chip manufacturing relationships. It can take as long as five years.
