TSMC Starts Apple A8 CPU Production in July

The upcoming iPhone 5S will likely run on the Apple A7. TSMC will according to a new Digitimes report already start producing small volumes of Apple's next A-series CPU. The Apple A8 is expect to be in iPad and iPhones in 2014.

TSMC has reportedly secured a three-year contract with Apple to make A-series CPUs. Together with it IC design service partner Global UniChip TSMC is making next A-series chips built using 20nm, 16nm and 10nm process nodes, according to industry sources.

The Apple A8 CPU will be found in a new iPhone 6 in early 2014, and the A9/A9X chips will be used in the wave of iPhone and iPad products coming after that.

Apple is moving away from Samsung for making its A-series CPUs. The A7 might still be a transition product and the A8 might be already coming completely from TSMC.
