According to the listing of the Google Trogdor on Geekbench, it has an ARM v8-based 8-core processor and a motherboard codenamed ‘Lazor.’ When we looked up Lazor on the internet, it turned out that the Lazor is a codename of a new chipset from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 7c.

Anyway, the listing of Google Trogdor reveals that this Chromebook has 8GB of RAM and that it runs on the Android 9 operating system. The device might actually be running on Chrome OS but the listing is showing that it runs on Android 9 OS because the Chrome OS is based on Android OS.

Coming to the benchmark score itself, the Google Trogdor Chromebook has scored 558 points in the single-core test and 1,528 points in the multi-core test. Considering that the Google Trogdor Chromebook has made it to Geekbench, its development seems to have been completed.
