Samsung is courting former Apple engineers to create a custom chip

According to the latest rumors, Samsung is attempting to hire former Apple and AMD engineers for a project focused on creating a custom chip.

The rumor, which appeared on the South Korean forum, states that Samsung is in talks with former Apple and AMD engineers. The ultimate goal would be to build a custom architecture for Samsung’s next chips.

Samsung already produces its own line of Exynos chip, but which is always based on ARM architecture. The company’s goal would be to make something completely customized, in such a way as to reach the level of Apple’s chips.

Samsung is reportedly already talking to a former engineer who headed Apple’s chip architecture development. The engineer in question would have asked to have control of the project and the team. Of course, it is impossible to verify the authenticity of this information, names of engineers who would be in talks with Samsung have been mentioned.

This would not be the first time that former Apple employees have been hired by other companies in the field of chip manufacturing. For example, last January, Qualcomm acquired chip design company Nuvia, which was founded by former Apple executives who worked on Apple Silicon and other chip-related projects.
