Brian Krzanich
Intel confirms new CEO will take office May 16

We have known for quite some time that Intel CEO Paul Otellini was set to retire this year. Today, however, Intel voted unanimously to replace outgoing CEO Otellini with new CEO Brian Krzanich.

Kzanich will assume the CEO position at Intel's annual stockholders meeting on May 16. He has been Intel's chief operating officer since January of 2012 and his appointment to CEO makes him the sixth CEO in Intel company history.

“After a thorough and deliberate selection process, the board of directors is delighted that Krzanich will lead Intel as we define and invent the next generation of technology that will shape the future of computing,” said Andy Bryant, chairman of Intel.

“Brian is a strong leader with a passion for technology and deep understanding of the business,” Bryant added. “His track record of execution and strategic leadership, combined with his open-minded approach to problem solving has earned him the respect of employees, customers and partners worldwide. He has the right combination of knowledge, depth and experience to lead the company during this period of rapid technology and industry change.”

Krzanich has been with Intel since 1982.

“I am deeply honored by the opportunity to lead Intel,” said Krzanich. “We have amazing assets, tremendous talent, and an unmatched legacy of innovation and execution. I look forward to working with our leadership team and employees worldwide to continue our proud legacy, while moving even faster into ultra-mobility, to lead Intel into the next era.”

" They arent dead yet, they have a ton of talent and massive manufacturing capabilities. If they decide to "focus" on mobile I would bet my house on it that withing a few years they will be huge in it. "

They have wasted 5 years on the Atom and it has gone nowhere in mobile (ie tablets and phones not netbooks). This time around, it is architectural challenges and manufacturing challenges that Intel is up against. Firstly ARM rules in 32bit small devices. Now Arm is going 64bit and hitting the server space with power efficiency that Intel still cannot match. Will Intel match it one day?. Sure but Intel has to eclipse it in order to win big. No doubt they will try.
If they take an ARM license and optimize the design, it would be easier to make a top-notch chip. X86 legacy is dragging them down, they ought to know it by now. In the mobile space, x86 is a burden best left out rather than carried. I wish them luck but they are wasting their resources again ...

LMAO. Economics 101.

ARM based CPUs sell for less than $50 with razor thin margins.

Intel profits in x86 more than most ARM suppliers gross in revenue selling the tiny little cpus.

What powers all the servers that all our fancy Apps rely on. What powers the Cloud storage that all our data and pictures and music end up on....

Oh right, Intel HIGH margin Xeon based servers.

Watch the winds... Haswell has ARM suppliers quaking...

That and we already have atom CPU's running Android in a few products. It's fast as hell and not horrible with battery power. Atom is still on 32nm. Like a said, another process shrink and a few more power tweaks and it can easily be the best. It would be the fastest mobile CPU and very competitive with regards to power. Intel is always ahead of the pack on process. They were shipping 22nm CPU's when everyone else was beginnning production on 28nm. Next year, they will be on 14nm. A 14nm Atom with some Haswell power tweaks could rule the roost, if that is the direction Intel decides to go.

Intel has proven clueless in the past AMD was the company that advanced x86 into 64-bit realm whilst intel tried to push itanium as the 64-bit successor.

And yet Intel still makes and sells all of the worlds fastest CPU's and at the highest profit margins.

"Intel has proven clueless in the past AMD was the company that advanced x86 into 64-bit realm whilst intel tried to push itanium as the 64-bit successor. "

Totally agreed, AMD was first with "dual core" and "on die" memory controllers as well. At that time I had a Athlon 64x2 and loved it. Intel was caught sleeping no doubt, but all AMD did was wake them up. Intel punched back and punched hard with the Core architecture and kicked AMD back to the bargain bin. Its not even close anymore. Intel is huge and huge companies can be inefficient and make bad chooces at times, but they do still have the best chip manufacturing capabilites on Earth and most of the best chip engineers as well. Other posts here are right, dont count them out. ARM should be feering them and hoping they dont decide to concentrate on mobile because if they do, ARM just might be done for... Or simply bought out.
