Samsung To Ship Half Of Their Processor To Apple This Year

Posted Jan 28, 2011

Samsung is going to quadruple their shipment of mobile processor chips to Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL). Apple was receiving about 5,000 application processor sheets per month from Samsung and now they will be getting 20,000. This means that about 50% of Samsung’s application processors will be given to Apple, meaning that Samsung is giving more to them than their own mobile division. The application processor is to the mobile phone as the CPU is to a PC. Samsung is building a $3.6 billion chip processing factory in Austin, TX, where a lot of the work there will be sold to Apple.
