The latest rumors from both Apple and Samsung have them working hand-in-hand on Apple's A9 internal hardware for the next gen iPhone. According to the intel, the main reason Samsung won the contract with Apple despite the bad blood between the two tech titans, is because Samsung is the only company able to crank out 14nm FinFET technology on a large enough scale to meet Apple's needs.
This new chip design process will supposedly consume 35% less energy yet offer 20% more power than previous Apple chips. The chips will also be 15% smaller than the previous gen 20nm chips.
The other intriguing thing about this news is that these chips supposedly went into production this week in Samsung's Austin, TX plant.
