Apple to Begin A-Series Chip Production at GlobalFoundries Facility in New York
Earlier this year, a report surfaced claiming that Apple was looking into the possibility of partnering with chip manufacturer GlobalFoundries to begin making A-series chips for Apple's iOS devices. At the time, the status of the deal was unclear, with CNET's sources indicating that the two companies were still "kicking the tires" on a possible deal.
The Times Union now reports that GlobalFoundries will indeed begin production of chips for Apple at its Fab 8 facility in Malta, New York, north of Albany. According to the Albany newspaper's sources, Samsung will be helping to set up the facility, but it is unclear exactly what the arrangements between the three companies will be beyond that.
