He's looking to bring Intel up to speed

ARM-based chipmakers may have beat Intel to the punch when it comes to mobile, but the company famously known for PC chips is looking to make a big splash at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) next week.  
According to a new report from Re/code, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich has big plans to unveil devices at CES that will be available in "several months" or a year. These include wearables, Quark chips and Intel-powered tablets and PCs. 
“Wearables is wide open,” said Krzanich. “What you will see at CES is that we are actually going to bring some very innovative wearables to the show that are developed and manufactured here.”
Devices such as wearables will be powered by Quark chips, which were introduced early last year. These chips have found a home in heating and air conditioning systems in Europe, but will move into other devices soon. 
Quark chips, according to Krzanich, will make devices smart and able to communicate. He didn't care to elaborate much on that.

While Intel doesn't have any concrete plans for smartphones, since Apple and Google's Android (specifically Samsung) have taken over that space, it wants to power 40 million tablets sold this year alone. Krzanich said Intel chips would make these tablets perform in ways never seen before, specifically with innovations in imaging.
Intel realizes it can no longer just focus on PCs, as that industry continues to slump in favor of mobile devices. Krzanich said the key to turning that around is to innovate, and innovate quickly.
Intel looks to be on the right path. In November 2013, it was announced that Intel created a new division for internet-connected devices.
