Apple Hires Samsung Chip Developer Jim Mergard

“Apple could be looking to move into the ARM-based laptop market with a new version of its A-series system-on-chip processor, hiring former AMD and Samsung engineer Jim Mergard to help its custom processor development…On the surface, it’s easy to dismiss Mergard’s move to Apple as simply being the Cupertino company looking to improve its smartphone and tablet system on chip designs still further. That ignores Mergard’s role in the E-series processor, however – a chip which has only seen use in low-power PCs and cut-price laptops.
