An anonymous reader writes with reports that TSMC is preparing to do a first test run of Apple’s A6X chipset currently manufactured by Samsung. The TSMC manufactured chips will feature a process shrink from 32nm to 28nm, and there’s a good chance Apple will grant them the contract for the next generation A7 chip. From SlashGear: “The test will kick off in Q1 2013, The China Times reports, with TSMC producing a new, 28nm version of the existing 32nm A6X that Samsung has been producing for the full-sized iPad 4th-gen; the smaller chip, which will likely be more power efficient as well, will debut in a new iPad 5th-gen and iPad mini 2.” Read more of this story at Slashdot.
