How dumb do you have to be not to be able to understand that if Apple's chip-maker (Samsung) is not ready for A6 chip on 28nm and the I-Pad 3 will have what is called the A5X chip......it means Samsung is making the chip but not on 28 nm, hence the name A5X and not A6.... geez.
Please explain oh wise guru of nothing why adding the x makes it obvious that this is indeed a Samsung fabbed chip. Truth is you are guessing and have no idea, so your theory is no better than mine.
You should know, Apple recently added iOS features to OSx with Mountain Lion. If you really think this was a coincidence, buckle up buttwipe you are in for a bumpy ride.
Apple use to have the power PC chip for them before.
Then they decided to just move everything to Intel.
Why did they? Can you answer that?
So maybe, the same scenario can happen for thei smartphones and iPad.
Your quick to call people names, are you forgetting every mac leaves with a intel chip and that samsung and apple are in court every day all over the world suing eachother, don't make it sound like you know everything. Intel could be inside more of apples products very easily.
As I recall that comment about not fabbing ARMH based APs, it was they would make them on trailing technology (32nm) but not leading edge until the chip was re-designed with an Atom core.
Mar 7 we will see if Samsung's 32nm processis ready for prime time.
