TSMC Chairman and CEO Morris Chang says the company achieved close to 100% market share on its 28nm chip process and should continue to succeed as wafer shipments triple this year, prompting market watchers to predict a crucial deal with Apple for its A series processors, according to "The China Times" -- as noted by "TNW" (http://tinyurl.com/a32pnkw).
According to the article, Chang’s comments led analysts in attendance to believe that TSMC has secured orders from Apple for its upcoming A series processors. Apple’s A6X chip is currently produced on a 32nm process by Samsung, but a reduction to 28nm could result in power savings and improved performance for future devices. Apple is also rumored to be moving away from Samsung for chip production as the two companies wage a global battle over alleged patent infringements.
