They haven't got anywhere else to go. Desperation it seems for companies with capabilities. It does happen from time to time I'd say. Which means... Samsung is technologically advanced and have a stable product in this field. Wonder is they already have 10nm process
AnonD-147377, 13 Dec 2014This proves Samsung is the best chipset maker, otherwise Apple would choose Qualcomm. Funny t... moreSo you know nothing about processors. You should educate yourself before posting.
I bet Apple got a real good deal considering the year Samsung has been having.
Samsung is teasing Intel for their Core M processors both are 14nm before this both were using 22nm
AnonD-46153, 13 Dec 2014yes he is... but this do prove that there are not many capable manufacturers when it comes to ... moreIt is not just tech but capacity that matters too.. TSMC is already working with ARM for 10nm bur according to reports it got swamped by the A8 demand..
And I have a feeling (pure circumstantial speculation) Apple must have managed to dictate tighter terms and strong arm a better deal given Samsungs spectacular last quarter..
Not to mention Samsung must have lots of surplus capacity as hardly any manufacturer other than Samsung uses the exynos and that it didn't get the A8/A8x deal..
Anonymous, 13 Dec 2014Why is Samsung giving away their advantage to this backstabbing patent troll?You could say it the other way too.. Why is Apple giving the business to patent infringer?
Because Apple and Samsung are both corporations. What matters at the end of the day is the financial statement.. Samsung has the capacity (I hear TSMC capacity is compeletely full due to the A8) and tech needed so Apple gives it business and Samsung wants the money so it takes the business..
And I guess Apple might have got to dictate tighter terms thanks to Samsungs spectacular last quarter report..

AnonD-200220, 13 Dec 2014So basically apple and samsung are two retarded women. After a long cat fight they make up for... moreMaybe it was all trying to drive up hype, get people talking and fighting over their devices and they end up being the 2 companies selling the most smartphones. Other companies should fight too.
AnonD-77892, 13 Dec 2014Dude, are you drunk?yes he is... but this do prove that there are not many capable manufacturers when it comes to chips... 14nm is out of the league of most of them...
This proves Samsung is the best chipset maker, otherwise Apple would choose Qualcomm.
Funny thing is Samsung put Qualcomm chipset to save some money while Apple put the best. Hope Samsung stop using Qualcomm because they are laggy and undependable look how Note II succeeded because it was pure Exynos experience worldwide there were no Qualcomm version.
Note II Sold over 30 millions units.
Note III Sold over 12 millions units.
Anonymous, 13 Dec 201414nm A9 based A9x will be a beast. Cant wait to see the performance of the next iPad.because it's 14nm, we can expect the battery life will be heaven... :D
the thing is you dont know if the exynos is better or not because they run different systems, maybe its because of a better optimization we see that apple phones runs games and apps faster and smoother...i have s4 i9500 with cm12 rom, and i have to say that the facebook app runs very smooth unlike with TW roms...it seems the optimization is the factor here...

14nm A9 based A9x will be a beast. Cant wait to see the performance of the next iPad.
AnonD-293430, 13 Dec 2014i wanna know why samsung do not use these chipsets for them self?? its like they are making th... moresamsung did use good part on flagship device too,
but those who butthurt will still saying that samsung sux too.
by this time,samsung might already developing 10nm chipset or 20nm with 3d technology which double 10nm performance.
But they won't announce for some reason,
1. profit from last technology not reach the target
2. if i have the power & technology,why should i announce that quickly,open 2 years for bidding until the price high enough to cover what i paid and what i want for.
From intel & amd you already know their conspiracy.
