It became known that Google is preparing its own processor for laptops and tablets, it will be made under the control of Chrome OS.
The company has hired experienced professionals with experience from Intel, Qualcomm and MediaTek to develop processors for its needs.
The new processor will be based on the ARM architecture: sources familiar with the situation noted that the commercial success of computers and tablets with the Apple M1 processor demonstrated the loyalty of the strategy of abandoning x86.
But despite the status, Google will have to compete for a place on the conveyor belt of contract manufacturers such as TSMC and Samsung. According to Bain & Co. analysts, if within the framework of 28nm technology, the costs of developing a processor reached $ 50 million, then in the case of 5nm technology, they are ten times higher.
It is planned that the release of the device with a processor from Google will begin no earlier than 2023.
