Google Chrome will no longer support some older processors

The Chromium development team announced via a policy document that support will be dropped for older x86 CPUs that do not meet a minimum of SSE3 (Supplemental Streaming SIMD Extensions 3) support, starting in Chrome 89.

The expected impact on Chrome usage is expected to be extremely small, given that the affected devices will mostly be running pre-Intel Core 2 Duo processors. As most post-2005 processors support SSE3 already, hardware will need to be upwards of 15  years old to be affected by this change.

Ancient hardware history

Windows will be the only operating system impacted by this announcement as Mac, Android and Chrome OS all already require SSE3 support to operate. It’s also likely that Microsoft Edge will be affected by this drop in support, given the browser is based on Chromium
