Google created Tensor processors for its Pixel 6 phones in 2021 and now wants to power its cloud with its own hardware.
A new report from The Information claimed Google is working on two server chip designs. One has the code name Cypress and has been designed completely in-house by Google Israel. The other chip, based on a design from Marvell Technology, has the code name Maple.
Cypress will be the "Plan A" processor, with the Maple chip as the "Plan B" processor. Both will use ARM-based 5nm chips. If Google does move ahead with its custom data server processor plans, Intel and AMD will lose a lot of cloudy business.
