Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) to supply A8 chips for Apple's future phones

Apple to severe its relationship with Samsung:

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company(TSMC) to supply chips to Apple on a 3-year agreement. TSMC is listed on NYSE.

Apple Chipset lineup according to a Digitime article:

A8  20-nanometer design rule-->2014
A9  16-nanometer design rule-->2015
A9X 10-nanometer desgin rule-->2015

The 20-nanometer node and its features appears on TSMC's site here:

But (Hodentek wonders ?) getting from 20 to 16 and 10-NM will not be easy within a year.
