Chrome OS Version Update For Chromebook Users
Google recently launched the Chrome OS 91.0.4472.147 version update for Chromebook users. The update is now reported to be causing performance issues for some Chromebook users. Performance issues were first reported by users on Reddy and since then some comments have been made about the Chromium bug tracker. Picked users say that even after disabling extensions, each website lags behind terribly. The problem here seems to be that version 91 of Chrome OS has lost performance by running the CPU. One user found that CPU usage often slows down the clock by hitting up to 100 percent 0.80GHz- a fraction of the power available in most modern Chromebooks.
According to the report, the problems are noticeable immediately after you update that machine. However, not all devices seem to be affected. According to a report from Android Police, most of the reports come from “Hatch” and “Grant” boards that come with 10th General Intel chips and some AMD chips. For those who haven’t updated their Chromebooks to version 91, Google is advising them to shut down until they fix or at least acknowledge the performance issues. If you’re already affected by performance drops, temporarily switching to beta channels may help.
Users can send feedback to Google by pressing ALT + Shift + I on their Chromebook. Some users even reported that even basic tasks like typing, navigating around the UI, and opening applications seem to stop the PC a halt. They said that disabling all the extensions, power washing, and restarting the PC is not helping to solve all the problems. We’ve reached out to Google for feedback at the same time and will update this location as soon as a response is found.
