Google has reportedly made significant progress in making its own chipset for use in its Pixel phones and in Chromebooks. According to a report from Axios, Google’s Pixel phones could be powered by its own processors as soon as next year.
As per the report, this new chipset is codenamed as “Whitechapel, which was designed with the help of Samsung. This new chipset features 5-nanometer technology would be used to manufacture the chips. The report claims that Google recently received its first working versions of the 8-core ARM processor.
The chip is said to be hardware optimized for machine learning and will work with Google’s existing custom Pixel chips dedicated to machine learning and image processing tasks. The report also mentions that some of its silicon will also be given over to improving the performance and “always-on” capabilities of Google Assistant
Google is said to be hoping that the future version of this chipset will be used to power Chromebooks. But for now, the tech giant has its priority for the Pixel phones.
Well, this is not the first time that Samsung has helped any tech giant to make their own chipsets. Earlier, the North Korean giant has helped Apple to make its own chipset which delivers impressive performance over recent years and allowed the company to save on costs.
Well, if everything goes well, it will be shocking news for Qualcomm which currently supplies its chipset for Pixel phones. Still, we will be able to see Google’s own chipset by 2021, most probably in the next Pixel phones.
