Rumor: Intel in Discussions to Produce Apple ChipsReuters is reporting that Intel has been in rather unlikely discussions that could pave the way for the processor giant producing chips to Apple specifications.

A source “close to one of the companies” claims that executives from both Apple and Intel have met over the past year to discuss the idea of Intel making chips on a contract manufacturing basis. That would mean that Intel used its foundries to create chips designed to Apple’s own specifications.

How accurate the rumors of an Intel-Apple love-in are remain, of course, to be seen. But if it is set to happen, it’ll all be overseen by Intel’s next, unannounced CEO; current chief Paul Otellini jumps ship in May. [Reuters via Verge]
