Korean media reports Samsung plans to build out its foundry business and will, over time, enter direct competition with TSMC by not only making mobile processors but also CPUs and GPUs for PCs. The firm is currently making its own custom core smartphone chip, the results of this project are expected to be seen by Q1 2016 at the latest, as well as its own chips with integrated modems.
Samsung Electronics aims to mount its own integrated chip on high-end smartphones to be released after the Galaxy S6. The company will also expand its foundry businesses, which mostly produced mobile APs, and gradually diversify product groups such as graphics processing units (GPUs) and central processing units (CPUs) for PCs.

Since GPUs and CPUs have much more intricate structure than a mobile AP, they require more advanced processing and designing technology in the process of production. Samsung has signed various technology licensing contracts with STMicroelectronics.
