Following in the footsteps of Apple, Google will use “homegrown” chips on Chromebook laptops in 2023

Tram Ho

At the end of 2020, Apple launched the MacBook with the M1 “homegrown” chip, marking a big change in the market. Now, following in the footsteps of Apple, Google is getting closer to launching its own CPUs for Chromebook laptops, according to internal sources at Nikkei Asia.

The US tech giant is said to be planning to use its CPU in Chromebooks and tablets running ChromeOS from around 2023. Google has not yet commented on this information.

CPUs can be considered as the brains of computers as they perform all major tasks. Google currently uses CPUs made by Intel and AMD for Chromebooks. Google’s new chips are said to be based on the architecture of Arm, the British chip design firm owned by SoftBank, which also provides the chip architecture for 90% of the world’s smartphones.

Earlier this month, Google announced that it would be using its own smartphone processor called Google Tensor. This chip will power the new Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro devices, which are expected to go on sale this fall.
