Samsung is no stranger to using a wide range of chip manufacturers for its devices, even though the company fabricates its personal processors. The main reason for this have often been Samsung’s not able to produce enough processors on its own and thus had to look at other OEMs to supply the chips.
Although Samsung and Intel have worked jointly in the past on a number of products. As per the sources at Reuters, Samsung is working with Intel to get the latter’s Clover Trail+ series of x86 mobile chips in at least one variant of its forthcoming Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 tablet. As per Korea Times, the reason again is associated with supplies, as Samsung is apparently struggling to produce enough of its personal Exynos range of chips.
Although it’s difficult to tell just how Intel’s chips stack up against Samsung’s in terms of performance, the former have performed nicely so far on their own and should offer decent performance on Samsung’s tablet.
