Google is reportedly planning to develop its Google TV platform for ARM chips, as well as Atom CPUs. If the rumor is true, then it could contribute to putting the future of Intel's Atom chips into question.

People from the Rumor City have reported that Google is planning to develop its Google TV platform for ARM chips and Atom CPUs. The current Google TV devices are restricted to x86 processors. Majority of its design goes for Intel’s Atom CE4100 low-power processor.

Hence, a move to support ARM on Google TV would free OEMs that produces their own ARM-based processors. In addition to this, other manufacturers are given a choice of processor architecture. As of the moment, neither Google nor ARM have officially confirmed the rumored deal. But if it is to be believed, then the future of Intel’s Atom chips will questioned.
