🎭 Delay Drama: Google’s Custom Chip Struts the Catwalk…in 2025? 🤷♀️
🚀 Google is like the fashionably late celeb at an award show! 🎩💅 Their fully custom chip for Pixel phones, code-named Redondo, was supposed to walk the tech runway next year but is now playing hard to get until 2025. 😅 And guess what? They’re dumping Samsung, their current chip designer, for Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. 😱 Let’s explore this tech soap opera, shall we?
First things first, why is Google being such a tease? 🤔 Are they taking a page from the book of Elon Musk, notorious for his SpaceX launch delays? 😂 Or is there more to it?
The Information gave us the 411 that the chip, with the spicy codename Redondo, was initially set to make its debut in 2024, but now we’ve got to wait an extra year. Talk about playing hard to get! 😩 But hey, in the world of tech, better late than never, right?
And in a plot twist straight out of a soap opera, Google is switching their chip-making allegiance. 💔 Yes, Samsung, the tech giant’s current chip designer, is out of the picture, and the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (TSMC), who also hobnobs with big shots like Apple and Nvidia, is stepping in. Who saw that coming? 😲
Now, that’s some spicy gossip! But what does this change of heart mean for us, the end users? What’s the impact on the next-gen Pixels? More importantly, will this affect the selfie game? 😱📸
One thing’s for sure, Google isn’t staying idle while waiting for 2025 to roll around. 🕰️ They’re sticking with Samsung for another year, so we won’t be left high and dry. Phew! 😌
But the anticipation for 2025 is building up! The new fully custom chip, codenamed Laguna (they sure love their beach town codenames!), will be built on TSMC’s 3-nanometer manufacturing process. For those not fluent in tech-speak, this is currently the world’s most advanced chipmaking process. 🧠💥 Google is going all in!
So, will this be the evolution that rockets the Pixel to new heights? 🚀 Or will it end up being a case of ‘too little, too late’? And how will Samsung react to this change in relationship status? 💔
🎬 And cut! That’s a wrap on today’s tech drama. But before the credits roll, let’s leave you with a thought-provoking question: How do you think this delay will impact the smartphone market, especially Google’s position within it? 🤔 Will they lose their current user base, or will this add to the allure, making the Pixel even more desirable when it finally launches? Let’s hear your thoughts! 💬
