Google Chrome ending support for older processors — what you need to know

If you’re still using Chrome on a computer that’s more than 15 years old, it might be a good time to consider upgrading. The Chromium development team has unveiled that support for older x86 CPUs will be going away. Specifically, CPUs that don’t meet a minimum of SSE3 (Supplemental Streaming SIMD Extensions 3), will be excluded in the next update, Chrome 89.

This issue is unlikely to affect many users as most people should be on more modern hardware. This is also only a Windows issue. Mac, Android and Chrome OS all require SSE3 to run.
