Google prepping Chromebook based on NVIDIA Tegra X1?

Posted on Thursday, July 02 2015 @ 11:17:14 CEST by

ZD Net writes evidence is showing up that Google may be planning to market a new NVIDIA-powered Chromebook that features the Tegra X "super chip". At present, the Tegra X1 is only used in a small number of devices like NVIDIA's own Shield Android TV console.
Tom's Hardware found references on Wednesday of the X1 being supported by Coreboot, an open-source replacement for proprietary BIOS firmware. Google typically creates code names for system boards for Chrome OS testing; the one with the Tegra X1 reference is dubbed "Smaug."

I did some digging in the Chromium issues tracker -- a place to monitor for Chrome OS developments -- and found nearly a dozen tickets open for the Smaug board, so clearly Google is working on integrating its Chrome OS software with Nvidia's hardware.
