I don't think they can just go with tsmc without a dedicated fab...any chance Apple would go with Intel for their foundry work?
Would the $10 billion chip plant be the TSMC dedicated fab? you think?
I don't think Apple has the experience/know-how to become their own fab.
Apple should buy TQNT!!
There's an article out speculating they are going to spend $10 B to build their own in NY.
Do their own. But, the awesome latest new Intels will go into Macs in mid 2013.
+, data centers need an strong computing power with low energy consumption.
Thus, Apple might start their own.
