Intel is finally upgrading its processors with the new Sunny Cove CPUs that will make part of Intel's Core and Xeon series next year
This year's iPhone devices will be faster than last year's iPhone X and even faster than most of the competition with 7nm A12 chip processors
The 7nm-based Apple A12 processor expected to power those three next-gen iPhones in the fall has reportedly entered mass production at TSMC. Meanwhile, Samsung is getting close to manufacturing its own 7nm chip for 2019 flagship Androids.
A super-early Huawei Mate 20 prototype may have already been benchmarked at AnTuTu, racking up an earth-shattering 356,000+ points with a 7nm-based Kirin 980 SoC inside.
Samsung, the makers of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845, 835, 821 and 820 processors, could lose the Snapdragon 855 production contract to bitter rivals TSMC.
Geekbench tells us that multi-core scores on an iPhone 8 or iPhone X beat those of a Mid-2017 13-inch MacBook Pro. This, one analyst says, is ridiculous.
Both the Kirin 970 for the Huawei Mate 10 and the Apple A11 for the fall's new iPhones are being made with 10nm fabrications.
One of the reasons Apple needed so much time to launch the long-rumored 10.5-inch iPad Pro is likely this super-small TSMC-made A10X SoC.
Samsung, which produced the Snapdragon 820, 821 and 835, will not produce the 845. TSMC, which has been pushing for 7nm fabs, is on the case.
The Galaxy S8 will use either the Snapdragon 835 or the Exynos 8895 chipset, depending on the region. Samsung isn't making enough of them.
The chipset is finally getting ready for mass production and just in time, too. There's going to be a swell of demand for a pricey iPhone 8.
All of these chipsets that will be in smartphones from every big name manufacturer this year use a 10nm fabrication that hasn't worked out at factories.
The first 10nm chips are expected to go into Apple's new iPads that are rumored set for a launch early next year. And rumors have plagued them.
Longtime Apple partner TSMC is reportedly having trouble ramping up 10nm chip production, possibly leading to 2017 iPad upgrade delays.
Qualcomm is officially following up the 14nm-based Snapdragon 820 and 821 processors with the Samsung-made 10nm Snapdragon 835.
