The former architect will return to Intel to lead the development of consumer chips

Last month, Intel announced the transfer of some senior executives, which will integrate the two original departments and establish two new departments, as well as the addition of two technical officers. However, Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger seems to have not finished his management changes. There are continuing to be resigned senior Intel employees to follow Pat Gelsinger’s pace and return to their old club.

According to a report by TomsHardware, chip architect Shlomit Weiss, who has worked for Intel for 28 years, will return to his old company and will lead the design and development of all Intel consumer chips in the future. Prior to this, Shlomit Weiss served as Senior Vice President of Mellanox/NVIDIA Business Engineering for about four years. Shlomit Weiss is even more impressive for his previous achievements during his tenure at Intel. Weiss won the Intel Achievement Award for developing dual-core architecture processors, which is also Intel’s highest internal award. Subsequently, Weiss was entrusted with an important task to lead the team that developed Sandy Bridge and Skylake processors.

Relying on the Skylake micro-architecture, Intel designed multiple iterative products over the next six years, across the 6th to 10th generation Core series processors and a variety of server chips, withstanding the consequences of the 10nm process delay. During this period, Intel gave up about 10% of the market share to AMD.

Before Shlomit Weiss returned to Intel’s work, Uri Frank was in charge. Uri Frank recently left Intel and went to Google to lead the development of self-developed SoC. Shlomit Weiss will partner with Sunil Shenoy, an old Intel employee, and Glenn Hinton, a well-known chip architect. The specific division of labor is unclear. At the same time, Shlomit Weiss and Sunil Shenoy will also be responsible for managing the Israel design team.

From the arrangements in recent months, it can be seen that Pat Gelsinger wants to rely on the rich experience of Intel’s old employees to rebuild the internal structure. In the past few years, Intel has many heavyweights due to management and decision-making issues. Shlomit Weiss holds an honors degree in electrical engineering and a bachelor’s degree in computer science from the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology and has registered a number of microprocessor development patents.
