TSMC already on board to build A5 parts
Taiwanese foundry-for-hire TSMC has already struck a deal with Apple to build A5 processors and other upcoming Apple designed processors, but an analyst expects Intel will also try to get on the Apple gravy train.

In a new report, Piper Jaffray & Co analyst Gus Richard believes Intel is also vying for Apple’s foundry business, as such a deal would make strategic sense for both companies.
