TSMC manufacturing company has released this Monday revenues of nearly 7 billion dollars in the second quarter, and is expected to grow even more profits in the third quarter of 2016.
As well you will know many of you, TSMC has been the only company responsible for developing the A10 for Apple chip , a processor that will be implemented in the iPhone 7 and new iPad.
According to DigiTimes, Q2 revenues (Second Quarter) rose sequentially 8%. Moreover, from Commercial Times suggests that this increase has been due to the A10 chip, and the benefits of Q3 could surpass records, between 7,140 and 7,450 million dollars.
Apple Samsung marginalized and trusted TSMC
Despite denying the differences between chips Samsung and TSMC , Apple will stop making work exclusively A10 processor and TSMC 16 nanometer FinFET process, thereby marginalizing Samsung, its "archenemy".
The A9 processor iPhone iPhone 6s and 6s Plus was produced by TSMC and Samsung, and when people heard about this, curiously complained to learn that their iPhone had a chip Samsung. This could be one reason for Apple's decision to order all production to TSMC, thus freeing themselves from dependence on Samsung.
Returning to the issue at hand, from Apple Insider report the successful quarter of TSMC differs from other supply companies Apple, as Foxconn, which reported orders very low compared to other years in the same cycle.
If you really TSMC has become the only company responsible for manufacturing the A10 chips, it could mean a turning point in the production of future smartphones, and even processor power could take a big leap. IPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be presented, probably in September. On the other hand, no rumor indicates that Apple to release another iPad to market. We will be reporting!
