Industry sources suggest that Google will soon start manufacturing its own processors. This information is strengthened when Google itself has created a new job listing, demanding a “multimedia chip architect” that can “lead a chip development effort” and “work with other engineers to take the chip to product shipment.”
Google would start making its own Processor
The job comes through the company’s Pixel team, which recently announced a high-end tablet productivity, Pixel C, based on the NVIDIA Tegra SoC X1. This effort suggests a significant expansion in the company’s ambitions in the business of hardware to achieve a deeper level control over their products, allowing them to compete more directly with Apple, which develops its own hardware and the software in order to achieve the greater advantage.
Without doubt, the trend towards vertical integration is vital, just look at the Microsoft and Apple, so we should not be surprised to see Google developing its own chips, especially for Android tablets for the sector that will allow productivity to compete with Microsoft Surface Pro and iPad Pro.
