TSMC to fab Apple 20nm SoC

Just a rumour at this point, but it looks like Taiwan`s TSMC is going to get the contract to fabricate the generation of Apple`s SoC that powers the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.

digitimes reports:

"In addition, Chai noted that though TSMC with its 20nm SoC process will most likely secure its first chip orders from Apple, the foundry's 16nm FinFET process will play a key role in Apple's "breakthrough" product.

TSMC's 20nm SoC process should be able to enter mass production between fourth-quarter 2013 and first-quarter 2014, followed by a newer 16nm FinFET node in less than one year"
