Samsung wants to get in on the Apple M2 chip production

Ro, 22 April 2022

Apple's current M1 silicon is used in its MacBook, Mac and iPad lineup so the company needs quite a bit of those chips. By extension, this means that whoever gets in on Apple's M1 chip supply chain is up for some serious financial gains.

Samsung wants to get in on the Apple M2 chip production

Samsung is one of those suppliers for Apple and is producing FC-BGA substrates that are crucial for modern high-density chips with circuit connections. Naturally, the Korean tech giant wants in on the M2 chip production as well.

The so-called Samsung Electro-Mechanics arm is pretty close to striking a deal with Apple to produce the same FC-BGA substrates for the upcoming M2 chip. This report coincides with recent intel of Samsung investing more than $1 billion in building an FC-BGA production facility in Vietnam and has invested over $241 million more into an already existing fab in South Korea.

Aha! ARM GPU. Thats the problem. Apple's GPU is the only mass-market ARM GPU (not counting 7c and 8cx as they sell almost nothing). There's a reason Geekbench 5 Compute gives the M1 Max 70k and the RTX 3080Ti 160k.
