When it comes to designing custom chipsets for its products, Apple is way ahead of the pack. For a long time, Apple’s custom-designed chipsets have been used in the iPhone and iPad, and the company is now in the process of switching from Intel to Apple Silicon. According to the latest flagships, the iPhone 12 series is far ahead of the competition in terms of CPU and GPU performance. Now, it appears that Samsung is looking for former Apple and AMD silicon engineers to design its custom CPU.
Samsung may be working on its custom CPU due to its dissatisfaction with the performance of ARM processors
In all of its Galaxy-powered smartphones, Samsung has always included two processor variants. Furthermore, you will see how the company’s latest flagships are powered by either an Exynos or a Snapdragon processor. The first is the company’s designs, which have been used in its smartphones since 2016. Samsung, on the other hand, shut down Moongose, an internal team that specialized in designing custom CPU cores, in November of 2019. Instead, the company has decided to license ARM’s CPU cores.

Samsung appears to be back on the road to developing its own processors after being underwhelmed by the performance of the ARM CPU design. As a result, the company is on the lookout for new engineers who have previously worked for Apple or AMD (via Tron). The reason is simple: to create a custom CPU and GPU solution that will allow the company to remain competitive in terms of performance while remaining relevant in the industry. According to GSMArena:
According to a new report, Samsung is courting former Apple and AMD CPU engineers, one of whom was a key figure in the development of Apple’s custom chipsets. That engineer wants complete control over their team and the ability to pick and choose which employees to hire.
Apart from that, Qualcomm is working on its own CPU design, following its $1.4 billion acquisition of Nuvia. In 2019, Apple engineers who worked on the company’s M1, A14, and other chips founded Nuvia. The processors are said to be suitable for a variety of devices, including laptops, smartphones, and other mobile devices.
Folks, that’s all there is to it. As soon as we have more information, we will provide an update on the story. Do you think Samsung’s custom silicon will be used in the next Galaxy flagship? Please let us know in the comments section.
