Business – sphere of activity is quite ironic. Especially in the world of IT. Visible in the events just black or white – is silly. Real life is much trickier than it seems.
Take, for example, the relationship Apple and Samsung. Sworn – according to many – the enemies. Recently Cupertino even stopped buying chips nearby competitor. 70% of innovative A8, the key components of iPhone 6, produced in the factories of another firm – Taiwanese TSMC.
Sneaky blow to the South Korean enemy? Nothing of the kind!
If you believe the leadership Samsung, then Apple has signed a new deal with them. More profitable last.
This is the release of the CPU A9, which will build the next generation of “apple” smartphone. Moreover, the platform for the iPhone 7 significantly surpass the old solutions.
TSMC recently mastered the process of 20 nm with the prospect of the imminent introduction of a 16-nm. Which allowed for a time to “replace” Samsung. But the latter immediately cost the company from Taiwan.
14-nanometer A9 – a triumph of progress. His project involves a surprisingly compact, high power and high energy efficiency. He is better on all counts “iron” used in phones and tablets Apple is now.
The news for the semiconductor unit Samsung is extremely favorable. More recently, a break with the Cupertino seemed inevitable and promised financial losses. But a negative scenario was avoided.
There are obvious gains on both sides.
