ARM/Apple/Samsung all make ARM processors. None of them that I am aware of have ever created an X86 processor.

All ARM CPUs except some IBM are x86?

I don't think IBM has made an X86 processor this decade. If you are thinking the PowerPC then no, it is not an X86 chip.

ARM chips use a RISC architecture, x86 is a CISC based architecture.

It's why there is a specially ported version of windows for ARM.

A little Google goes a long way to finishing your homework alone.....

But, as you can not be troubled to do your own research, let me share this Wikipedia link with you:

Hi :) 

Totally agree, you would think if they are bright enough (or stupid enough) to come here to get us to do their homework for them, that they would know how to use Google first.... lol

All the best Brett :)

Nope. Totally different architectures.
