Apparently, the information was not just a figment. Based on the latest job vacancies, Apple is known is looking for employees to design and develop a GPU chip.
Other positions are also sought after is someone who has knowledge of the design of micro-architectural details, including the operation when using a larger GPU.
However, Apple did not mention explicitly that position will be devoted to the development of the GPU. For information, the news about the Cupertino-based company plans to work on its own GPU from Imagination Technologies known some time ago.
According to the British company, Apple plans to no longer use their technology within the next two years. Apple plans to work independently to control its own products and reduce dependence on technology Imagination.
If this news is true, it turns out there is another problem that is expected to be Apple's face. Imagination feel the Cupertino-based company's efforts to work on the GPU itself is almost inextricably tied to patent infringement.
