Google Chrome update for the Apple M1 chip to run faster and smoother
Chrome browser after updating a version exclusively for Apple’s M1 chip has improved performance up to 80% compared to other platforms.
As we all know, Google recently released a Chrome browser update specifically for Macs running on new Apple Silicon chips. Previously, users of these devices would have to run Intel x86_64 version Chrome via the Rosetta 2 emulator, which reduced Chrome’s performance compared to running “native”.

However, after being updated to the ARM architecture version, Google Chrome unexpectedly improved its performance dramatically compared to when running through emulator, even many times faster than other Other platforms.
Through testing of ArsTechnica page, the performance of Chrome browser after being updated for M1 chip has improved significantly. In some browser benchmarks such as Speedometer 2.0, Jetstream 2 or MotionMark 1.1, Chrome version for M1 chip proved to excel with up to 80% higher performance score than the version for Intel x86_64 system running through Rosetta compiler. 2. Of course, this score is a comparison of all Chrome browsers, and Safari, of course, will always be at the forefront of processing performance.
In addition, when compared to the Windows 10 platform on a laptop is the HP Elitebook running the Ryzen Pro 4750U chip, one of the chips for the most powerful ultrabook models currently, the Chrome browser. The “native” for the M1 chip is significantly more powerful than the Chrome version for Windows.
Currently, in terms of web browsing, users of Mac devices running M1 chip no longer have to “fret” about compatibility issues anymore because the 3 most popular browsers on Mac are Safari, Google Chrome, Firefox have all been updated to be compatible with the ARM platform. In the future, Microsoft is also committed to update the Edge Chromium browser for ARM platforms soon.
