Broadcom (NASDAQ:AVGO) stock is sliding lower on Thursday as investors discuss the potential of Alphabet’s (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL) Google dropping the chip company.

According to recent reports, executives at Google are discussing the possibility of no longer using Broadcom chips for its artificial intelligence (AI) projects. Instead, the tech giant is considering making its own chips for AI use.

The latest news claims that Google wants to end the use of Broadcom for AI chips starting as early as 2027. Investors in AVGO stock will also note that reports claim Google is moving away from Broadcom in other uses, such as server and ethernet chips. These reports claim that it’s switching over to Marvell Technology (NASDAQ:MRVL) for these cases.

Google switching away from Broadcom would be a major blow to the company. Especially as it’s one of the chipmakers that has seen major growth alongside the AI boom. That could slow its growth and cause worries among investors in AVGO stock.
