Google is building in-house, ARM-based Chromebook chips

Recently, Google announced its first in-house processor. The upcoming Tensor processor will power the Pixel 6 series later this year. Besides powering a flagship phone, the Tensor chipset promises a new future for Google. The company has started being more independent from other component makers. According to a new report, an in-house smartphone chip is only the start. Google is supposedly building its own ARM-based Chromebook chips.

Reported by Nikkei Asia, Google is working on a processor for laptops and tablets. Doing so will continue the company’s drive to develop more components in-house. The first chips will reportedly start rolling out in devices starting 2023.

Much like the upcoming Tensor chips, the laptop chips will be based on the ARM architecture. Doing so will reduce Google’s reliance on third-party component makers. It might reduce costs and increase revenue, as a result.

That said, though Google isn’t buying from other sellers directly, there is still a possibility that the company will still rely on other makers. According to a recent report, the Tensor chipset is actually based on an unreleased Exynos chip.

Of course, 2023 is still a long time coming. Regardless, upcoming ARM-based Chromebook chips hold a lot of promise for Google’s coming future.
