No samsung has nothing to do with design of A7 but it has a lot to do with the power/efficiency. Wake up!
Look, you're rampant anti-Apple rhetoric is clouding even basic logic that even trolls should understand. The A7 is a chip design that is independent of the node in which it's built atop. This is way, as previously shown, the A4 is both a 45nm and 32nm variant. This means that the A7 could just as well be made at 32nm or 22nm or 14nm etc. Power efficiency and size would change but that has to do with the lithography, not the design of the chip
You're still claiming that the A7 design in and of itself is somehow 1) not possible without Samsung's 28nm node, and that the A7 would not be possible if built using Intel or TMSC's foundries. Both of those are completely false because you're premise is false. It's like you saying that a sports car's engineers can't be credited with the performance they achieved solely within the car because they can't properly test it without being on roads of a certain type. The roads are a completely different feat of engineering independent of the sports car just as the A7 is a completely different set of engineering independent on the node in which it was built.
Try being objective and fair for once. You may like it.
