According to a report from the Nikkei, Google is developing an Arm-based processor and is expected to launch it in 2023, and is expected to be applied to Chromebooks or tablets.
Google expects to use a customized “Tensor” processor on the upcoming Google Pixel 6 mobile phone. Recently, it has been reported that it will use a self-developed ARM-based processor on Chromebooks and tablets. Through the features of the Arm architecture, it can provide Faster response speed and longer battery life, while the performance performance will not be too different.
In recent years, in addition to Pixel phones, Google has also launched Pixelbook, Pixel Slate and other laptop and tablet products, and most of them use Intel processors. However, according to the “Nikkei Shimbun” report, Google will accelerate hardware development after the Tensor chip and launch an ARM-based processor, which is expected to be launched in 2023 and applied to Chromebooks or tablets.
After Apple launched the ARM-based M1 chip last year, Google’s move is not surprising, and there are already some Chromebooks using the ARM-based architecture on the market. For example, MediaTek and Samsung have launched processors for Chromebooks. Google wants Self-developed and applied to devices equipped with Chrome OS in the future may be able to strengthen the integration of software and hardware. In addition, Google is hiring chip engineers in countries/regions such as the United States, Israel, India, and Taiwan. Nikkei Asia is also analyzing LinkedIn profiles. Google is recruiting technical talents from chip companies such as Intel, Qualcomm, and MediaTek. Strengthen its own processor design capabilities.
