Google corporate news, as a rule, always catches unprepared readers by surprise – because they skillfully use various trends in related developments in similar areas.

 

 

For example, Apple’s developments from the very beginning had their own zest – they often went completely their own way, both in the direction of developing their own processors and chips, and in the strategy of developing their operating system.

 

What seemed easier for the user and more difficult for technicians and programmers in comparison with their counterparts is now almost equal to the available technologies of other companies – and even for several years Apple used Intel processors in its devices…

But progress does not stand still: for the new requirements of energy efficiency and performance, Intel processors have become a dead end branch of Apple’s evolution – and they have again gone their own way: integrated several components into one unit, keeping in mind the paradigm of advanced security and size reduction as the main direction, whatever they say.

 

Google is somewhat behind in this race: their practice of starting and unexpectedly completing developments, if they do not meet some hidden goals of the company, without any explanation, creates a certain aura of detachment from development, which, of course, is completely untrue.

 

Analysis of Google’s activities directly suggests that they prefer to surprise with ready-made products, especially without advertising raw semi-finished products, and this strategy, which does not allow them to play on the preliminary assessment of their developments by competitors, works perfectly.

 

However, now they have openly announced the development of a new concept that speaks of the need for systems on a chip – that is, a new type of motherboard.

 

The reason for this is a reduction in power consumption and the speed of data exchange between the various components, as well as much closer integration with the basic elements of the hardware, which is especially important for servers.

 

Interestingly, a few years ago, there were developments of mini-operating systems, including for servers, which, being written in a language such as assembler, in addition to speed, had such a small size that they could safely fit into the processor’s cache memory.

 

Unfortunately, this remains at the level of enthusiast developments, and if these two technologies can be combined, then it is difficult to even give an adequate forecast of the increase in performance and energy efficiency of such systems…
