More reports are appearing in the media. Apple GPU Design Center in Orlando will focus on 3D graphics for iDevices

Apple is to further enhance up its chip making department. For this, the tech maker is on way to set up a facility in Orlando, Florida where the 3D graphics design studio of AMD, one of the world’s top mobile chipmakers, situates. It is said that Apple has developed its much-touted ‘GPU Design Center’ in Orlando with a goal to intensify its battle against AMD, and for that purpose the company seems to have hired a lot of AMD workers also.

“Apple is said to have learned that many of AMD’s 3D graphics patents were issued from its Orlando offices and targeted this area specifically,” says MacRumors. According to the blog, Apple has recruited twenty AMD engineers and more others for its new chip studio in Orlando. Its current office, which is a leased one, is located quite near to AMD’s campus. And, Apple is working on to set up a permanent factory, though.

It looks that Apple is to team up its Orlando chip division with roughly forty engineers. The team will report to the Austin-based previous Intrinsity team, which Apple acquired recently. Intrinsity was used by the firm to develop its old A4 processor and it is a firm that contributed much to make Apple’s own chipsets that powerful and competitive to others.

It looks that the Apple chip unit in Orlando will focus on 3D graphics. Most of the engineers hired by Apple have special expertise in handling 3D technology. It is a known fact that Apple has been working to bring 3D graphics capabilities in its iDevices for a while.

With the new chips from the Orlando studio, Apple might soon bring high performance 3D graphics support to it upcoming devices. The next major products expected to come from Apple include iPhone 5S, iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2, which are expected for sooner release from the Cupertino firm.
