[9TO5Google] More Snapdragon Chromebooks are on the way, starting with ‘Trogdor’

After last week’s revelation that Google is “not pursuing” Intel’s Ice Lake processors for use in Chrome OS, the near future of Chromebook hardware development seemed like it would be somewhat stagnant. Thankfully, Intel is not the only name in Chromebook hardware, with competition heating up from AMD, MediaTek, and Qualcomm.

AMD has been working with Google on bringing Ryzen-powered Chromebooks to market, building upon the foundation laid by the first generation of AMD Chromebooks released early this year. Meanwhile, MediaTek has been including their chips in Chrome OS devices for years, powering some of our favorite budget-friendly Chromebooks.

Qualcomm, for its part, hasn’t officially entered the Chrome OS space yet, as their “Cheza” Chromebook is still in-development and has not made it to market. The Cheza Chromebook is planned to use the same Snapdragon 845 seen in most 2018 flagship Android phones. Now we’re over halfway through 2019 and Android flagships are running the Snapdragon 855.

If you think Win 10 has telemetry, a Chromebook is probably a damn homing beacon.

Goolag is only monitoring you for your own protection.

No need to worry as the PrimeProtection does not interfere with your Privacy®. Back to your PrimeDesks and PrimeCubicles everyone. Nothing to see here fellow PrimeCitizens.

Studying consumer marketing + a low information diet makes these manipulations all too painful to observe.

On the other hand the snapdragon processors entering chromebooks is nothing but good. The existing intel options are painfully slow and in contrast most snapdragon cpu's perform well and can be overclocked easily. Open the device up and improve cooling with thermal pads and good TIM and you can see substantial performance improvements even on low end SKU's.

I like the Google OS from a dev perspective. I play around a lot in the custom rom community and the whole java environment on top of the Linux kernel makes for a nice lightweight yet powerful OS.

Unfortunately until the moders get a hand of Chrome OS and rip all the telemetry out it's a no go.
