Foregoing news have stated that the company named as Apple coming with a recent development in iPad lineup consisting of many various slates and is expected to be announced upon the year 2017. But it is unfortunate from the origin of the news closed to matter have stated ‘lower than expected’ yield for 10nm chips may vigour Apple to increase the official announcement month of the family of iPad. To incorporate Apple’s A10X SoCs inside the lineup of iPad can mean that the architecture of the chip would be made on 10 nm FinFET, ensuring in lower power consumption, thermal efficiency and better performance.
Monumental Issues Might be faced by Samsung and TSMC- A10X production May delay, Date extension of the Imminent iPad
These chips as said by the authorities that they can overtake the capacity of the 16nm FinFET chips; a process where inside the iPhone 7 lineup A10 chips were found. But the untimely announcement date for iPad lineup may seem that it could cease to exist because both Samsung and TSMC have been going through a lot of issues regarding the making in 10 nm FinFET chips. It surely is a difficult process; major companies like Samsung and TSMC have done tons of investments in the monetary resources in constructions buildings suits to major productions of these chips.
Buildings are strong enough to withstand major vibrations and other element, which may hinder the high level of production process and alone the steps required to make such chips on a bigger scale is not an easy task which is why the origin are saying that both developers are facing difficulty here. If they can’t meet the demand that the announcement dates fot the product can be pushed forward and many new freshies coming in that they are coming up with a stronger demand. Preceding rumors have suggested that in 2017 linup for iPads may include three of the models:
- Upgraded 12.9-inch model
- Upgraded 9.7-inch model
- Brand new 10.9-inch model
The technology of 10nm FinFET can also be used to make the A11 SoCs which will be presented in iPhone 8, but it is expected to commence in Q2 2017, expected to be announced earlier, they need to find the solution for the impeding element for their progress.
