Apple to design their own processor microarchitecture?

Apple has done a lot of bold things in the recent decade. The company switched to x86 from PowerPC, it introduced a phone with a touch-screen and a personal computer in slate form-factor as well as designed its first system-on-chip aimed specifically at its own devices. Apparently, now Apple wants to design its own processor micro-architecture, something that may potentially give its products tangible performance advantages over competitors.

At present Apple is looking for experienced qualified engineers to work/lead the micro-architecture design of a CPU. The job includes designing micro-architecture according to performance and functionality requirements. In addition, Apple wants to hire an experienced and well rounded CPU design professional to work on the definition, design, and implementation of a CPU core. The candidate will be expected to work closely with architects in product definition and feasibility analysis.
