The iPhone uses an Xscale processor
The processor of the new Apple iPhone has only an indirect relationship to Intel, Intel Italia executive manager Dario Bucci said in an interview with Il Sole 24 Ore. According to him, the Xscale processor, which is installed in the iPhone, is indeed related to Intel processors, but it was developed by the Marvell Technology Group, which bought a license for its architecture from Intel in June last year.
Bucci said that Intel was not involved in the development of the iPhone, but will supply NAND flash memory chips used in the new device’s internal storage.
He noted that Apple is one of the main consumers of flash memory produced by the semiconductor giant. Such announcement should seriously disappoint Samsung and other flash memory vendors, which also hoped to be involved in supplying memory chips for the iPhone.
