Intel has been talking about a process technology lead for 15 years that would allow Intel to win the mobile market that has clearly not worked
See this 15 year old Intel propaganda
Bryant again saying more of the same
"Otellini felt it was time to turn over the reins to a new generation as Intel admittedly faces challenges in the mobile computing arena — challenges, however, that Bryant feels Intel can meet through its superior chip-making technology."
Insanity to keep doing the same thing over and over and expect a different result.
Time for an outsider to clean house and install a new management team that understand what it takes to win in mobile.
US Made - I also worked Intel and agree.
"Moore's Law" is not a business model but that has been Intel's plan under Otellini. Silicon technology keeps changing for no real benefit at communication SOC level. Intel silicon manufacturing also does not understand low cost.
My old Intel group still using foundry and would like to continue to use foundry rather than use Intel internal silicon.
Andy Bryant is just wrong when he says " Intel can meet (the mobile challenge) though its superior chip making technology" .
Otellini/Bryant just do not mobile SOC design and the failed high cost silicon strategy (copy exactly, design rule restrictions, Et cetra).
Paul Otellini was paid a package worth $17 million for his efforts in 2011 http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4370482/Intel-CEO-pay-2011
So if you think you can do a better job perhaps you should ask for $20 million.
