Apple is not going to release A6 Processors till 2012 [Rumor]

So it has been reported that Apple is not looking forward to put their new A6 Processor in upcoming iPad or other device. The report says that there won't be any A6 Processors until 2012. As you might have know that the chip is a quad-core Cortex-A9 CPU built on 28nm at TSMC and utilizing 3D fabrication technology. While the Cortex-A9 is a proven design, Apple's A6 will be one of the first 28nm chips on the market.The chip will serve as a test case for TSMC's introduction of both 28nm gate-last technology and 3D chip stacking.

This is actually TSMC's first effort with an Apple device. The A4 and A5 have both historically been manufactured by Samsung.

The Linley group notes that,
"if Apple launches the iPad 3 in January 2012, following its usual schedule, the tablet will have to use the same A5 processor as the current iPad 2, relying on the rumored new high-resolution “Retina” dis­play to drive the upgrade cycle. Apple could then deliver a midyear iPad upgrade, which would be unusual for the company, or it could plug the A6 into next year’s iPhone first and then into the iPad in early 2013."
