    Do they have the factories to produce those chips?

    Do they need foundaries? IBM sold theirs. As did AMD.
    Chip design and production are not intimately linked.
    Many companies do not produce their own chips.
    Oddly enough, NXP still retains Motorola's foundaries.
    Using TSMC (or even Samsung) makes more sense than using AMD offshoot Global Foundries.
    Its allowed AMD to produce products at a finer pitch than its competitor Intel (which is still relying on it's own foundaries).

    So again, does this matter?
