Chrome OS operating system for laptop devices or computers made by Google will have its processor. This is likely due to “plagiarizing” Apple products already with their processors and operating systems.
Earlier this year, Google confirmed that the Pixel 6 smartphone series will be powered by the first chipset made by the world's largest search engine company.
Processor Tensor (TPU) made by Google, which is claimed to have several innovative machine learning, will be used in Pixel 6 and Chrome OS. This processor will also be supported by a modem made from Samsung.
Sensor TPU Processor
As reported by Nikkei Asia, Google is currently building its processor for and tablets supported by Chrome OS. Quoted from 3 sources who know the plan, Google will soon launch its first product with TPU tensor in 2023.
As both sources told the media. Apple's success was so inspired that Google to develop chipsets specifically for smartphones and computers. As is known, Apple has been producing chipsets for the iPhone itself since 2010 with the iPhone 4 product.
The processor is believed to be used on Google's Chrome OS and for its smartphone chipset. The chipset will be based on the arm's design. This suggests that we will look at ARM Cortex and possibly Mali GPUs.
Sources from Nikkei Asia also said Google was stepping up efforts to build processors on Pixel smartphones and other devices. This means that Google will continue to develop tensor processors for pixel 6s. And it's likely to be working on a mid-range smartphone pixel A.
Google Chrome OS vs Apple
It's too early to say Google will be able to fight Apple in desktop computing with Chrome OS. And it should be noted that Apple is also developing its CPU and GPU. Don't rely on chip designers like ARM. We'll see in 2023 that Chrome OS that uses Tensor processors will compete fiercely with Processor from Apple.
