Apple will soon be developing its own graphics chips for the iPhone. Well we had to know that was coming.

According to British chip designer Imagination Technologies, in less than two years, Apple will no longer be licensing their graphics chips.

The British chip designer was notified in a statement from Apple that said that Apple was, ““working on a separate, independent graphics design in order to control its products and will be reducing its future reliance on Imagination’s technology.”

The statement further presented: “Apple has not presented any evidence to substantiate its assertion that it will no longer require Imagination’s technology, without violating Imagination’s patents, intellectual property and confidential information. This evidence has been requested by Imagination but Apple has declined to provide it.

Further, Imagination believes that it would be extremely challenging to design a brand new GPU architecture from basics without infringing its intellectual property rights, accordingly Imagination does not accept Apple’s assertions.”





"It's okay. The scenarios aren't that clear. But it's good looking. [Steve Jobs] does good design, and [the iPad] is absolutely a good example of that." -- Bill Gates on the Apple iPad
