Next to one of the world's largest phone makers, Samsung is also a major player in the processor market. In addition to its own Exynos chips, Samsung also makes processors for big names like Apple and NVIDIA. AMD was once a major player in this market, but now owns a share of less than 20 percent and might soon turn to Samsung to remain relevant.

According to a report by South Korea's Electronic Times quoted by Reuters, unnamed sources revealed that Samsung will start manufacturing new AMD processors in 2016. Obviously, these will be 14 nm parts. Right now, AMD is still stuck with the 28 nm technology, while Intel has both 22 nm and 14 nm processors on the market. 

The report mentioned above reveals that Samsung's foundry business and GlobalFoundries will work together in a central processing unit and a graphics processing chip for AMD. Unfortunately, Samsung and AMD did not comment anything about the rumors yet.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
