I hate point this out but they're not really "making" they're own chips, neither are Apple or Samsung for that matter. Basically everyone licenses an ARM design, customizes it for their purposes and has TSMC print them out. That's why ARM is the most widely used architecture in the world. Saying LG is making they're own chip is like saying you're local McDonald's makes everything from scratch.

The real winner here is TSMC, but aren't they over loaded already? I find it hard to believe 2Q 2014 is a shipping date not a begin making date.

TSMC seem to have good investment potential. ARM keeps chugging alone too.

Shame most people have horrid upload speeds, great tho nvidea are on the right path to awesomeness as this's the future along side oculus rift.

While mobile devices and pc hardware are so far and wide technologically, you gotta ask is our home internet on a global level that ancient.
