Samsung ramp up production of A5 processors: iPhone 5 launch draws ever closer
Sources are saying that chip makers and suppliers Samsung are set to "quadruple monthly shipments of [processors] to Apple", with factories pulling long hours to meet the expected demand. So much so infact that 50% of Samsung's production capacity is now dedicated to churning out the Apple hardware.
Though on the face of things Samsung, with their Galaxy Tab and Galaxy S hardware, are direct rivals to Apple, the partnership means massive business for Sammy. Even now they are said to be looking into building a $3.6 billion dollar plant in Austin, Texas, to ensure shipping to Cupertino goes ahead without a hitch.
