Sometimes, (science) fiction or just visionary ideas create visions of technology which does not after all contradict laws of physics / technical either economical feasibility. Sometimes though it's quite clear what are the limits and the fiction/dream remains fiction/dream.

Now it is great to see how companies like Neuralink but also others create advance technologies to support prosthetics integration with BCI.

There seems to an idea that once we could "somehow" integrate our brain with chips/computers. But what about cognitive capabilities?

If a chip becomes a "part" of the brain, is it really possible we could somehow perceive new "computational" capabilities? I am asking this because learning that there is a new limb is not same as learning there is a new part of the brain. That is, brain already has capabilities for example for visual and motorical processing, and so we could learn to operate an artifical limb or an eye etc.

But how should we perceive there is "something" allowing advanced cognitive capabilities given chips provide after all logical gates?
