Mediatek is a fabless company that designed its own A15 bL - Mediatek is one of TSMC customers.
How the hell is Mediatek going to compete with Samsung who has its own A15 bL design, its own fabs, its own LPDRAM, its own NAND and its own display?
I think many companies like Mediatek jumped on ARM wagon to end up in a death spiral.
Always remember TI is no dummy - their own shareholders demanded to get out of mobile.
The difference between companies like Mediatek and TI is that TI has a choice to persue more lucrative business.
61 always says the ARM customers do the heavy lifting....well some of them will get crushed.
No chance Samsung will have 450mm and the more business Intel takes from TSMC the less likely TSMC will be able to go 450 - TSMC plate is more than full
