This discussion of Krzanich's education seems not only elitist, but downright silly. The man has been working at Intel for more than 30 years, many of those in very senior positions. Whatever he learned or didn't learn in chemistry 101 at SJSU is irrelevant.
the problem with appointing a long term Intel inside is that Intel will keep being Intel... when it desperately needs to morph into a combo of Samsung, ARM, Broadcom and Intel ... but Intel just doesn't get it. Outside of x86 they have failed at every turn, and predictably so.
One big change seems to be downgrading of Perlmutter's position. "After Perlmutter transfers his business groups, he and Krzanich will "define his next significant contribution at Intel," according to the email described by the source."
Hmm... Basically he has his chair taken from under him, with no replacement in sight.
some folk think Krzanich's education sucks.
but who cares. How is he got picked among competitors? there is no exam, test, competition. all that matters is the board like him. why? maybe because he is dumb and won't make the board members looks stupid.
ie. one major US semi company's ceo dragged a group of his operator friends to senior management role.
they might be good guys, but dumb indeed.
anyway, they can promote their dog to be a vp literally. dog has many virtue anyway.
