Apple chip roadmap hints A5 iPhone 5, A6 iPad 3 [June 3, 2011]:

Gwennap anticipates Apple may have to think different in future. That’s because Apple should match industry trends in order to create a quad-core A6 processor next year.

Processor manufacturing is currently conducted by Samsung. But, with Apple and Samsung’s mobile division involved in an increasingly bitter courtroom dispute, it seems unlikely this relationship will continue forever. This must be why Apple is working with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing to bring that firm online as processor maker.

There’s another option too, and highly-placed executives at that firm seem willing to dance with Apple. Apple “helps shape” Intel’s road map, according to Intel SVP Tom Kilroy. And Intel CEO, Paul Otellini has observed that money from mobile processor design is “mostly going to the foundry guys”.

The notion that Intel may begin manufacturing ARM-based processors seems highly counter-intuitive…but the foundry market is set to be worth in excess of $50 billion by 2015, says Microprocessor Review.
