Apple to double down on graphics in next-gen processors

Apple A7 Graphics

Apple has hired at least a dozen former graphics engineers from semiconductor maker AMD, MacRumors reported, citing new employees’ LinkedIn profiles. The company reportedly hired a number of graphics architects, hardware engineers and others after AMD laid off numerous employees this past January. Recent job postings reveal that Apple is building an advanced team of chip engineers for its Orlando Design Center, and is currently seeking a manager to lead the “Orlando GPU team” and “deliver high quality IP to specification and on schedule.” Apple debuted the iPad in 2010 with its first custom designed mobile processor, the A4 chip, and since then the company has continued to develop more of its technology in-house.
