Google Apparently Wants To Design Its Own Smartphone Chips

This sounds good to me, so long as they’re not prone to overheating issues.

The report says that during discussions that happened this fall, "Google representatives put forward designs of chips it was interested in co-developing, including a phone’s main processor." The new chips are reportedly needed for future Android features that Google hopes to release "in the next few years." By designing its own chips, Google can make sure the right amount of horsepower gets assigned to all the right places and remove bottlenecks that would slow down these new features.
