Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) has reportedly begun production of the A8 chip for the new iPhone, according to the Commercial Times.

The AFP relays the report:

The world's leading contract microchip maker last month started producing the A8 chip, which is tipped to power the expected iPhone 6, the Commercial Times reported. The report, which cited supply chain sources, said TSMC had won most of the manufacturing orders for logic and power management integrated chips for the new handset.

The Commercial Times says the A8 chip will be made with a 20-nanometer process and include a quad-core 64-bit processor and quad-core graphics.

Production is said to have started earlier than previous years which means Apple could potentially release the new iPhone in Q3 2013 instead of Q4.

Previous reports have indicated that Samsung has been forced to abandon orders for the Apple A8 processor due to low production yields.
