Speculations will get u nowhere!
At least there is a team that doesnt cock around for their achievements,
doesnt set release dates without the full working product at hand and doesnt
makes changes (revisions) along the way like other "teams"!
1000% working product without any bugs!
My opinion is by even making it public the fact that they are working on a chip,
something is cooking!
Patience is a virtue!
Maybe we will get a nice surprise soon!
As for two teams working together for a common task, i dont think it would be a setback!
Mutually understanding and common tasks is required for cooperation and if they didnt
have it they wouldnt have merged!
