That’s the word on the Taiwanese street. Digitimes reports that TSMC is already making Apple A8 CPUs for iPhone 6 smartphones.
Apple is expected to announce the next generation of its iPad in the New Year – amidst consistent reports that sales of tablets are flagging.
The CPUs will be built on a 20 nanometre process and, the report added, is codenamed the A8X.
Shrinking the die to 20 nanometres accounted for 10 percent of its revenues in Q3 2014.
TSMC turned over $6.87 billion in its third financial quarter of this year.
