Chromium development team announced that Google Chrome will no longer work on some legacy x86 processors.
With the recent announcement, Google announced that some old x86 processors will not support Chrome 89 and future versions. In the statement made by the Chromium development team, it is said that support will also be cut for processors that do not use SSE3.
If we consider the explanation of the development team, we see that processors older than Intel Core 2 Duo and AMD Athlon 64 will no longer be able to use the scanner. This means that processors over the age of 15 will not be able to run the current version of the browser.
In addition, Google has not made any detailed explanation about why support for older generation processors was removed for now. However, according to the reports shared on the subject, the biggest reason for Google ending this support is shown as the old processors do not meet the minimum requirements after the new update.
It is also pointed out that a noticeable performance improvement will be made after this update, which will be published in the near future.
