    This is the same chap who on Twitter said Ryzen had low single thread performance before launch.

    He jokes about his phone keyboard the tweet after, to be fair.

    "Because my knowledge about Intel is too deep, I would get lawyers knocking on my door next day,"

    By the way A.M.D has equally smart engineers and they don't need to steal intel employees to come up with better products. If ZEN is killing intel what of ZEN 2?

    I don't think this has anything to do with Intel vs AMD matter. It's just a somewhat well known Intel ex-employee that decides to leave. Nobody talked about stealing people.

    I can imagine how working in the same place and position for over 20 years can be tiresome. Hope for the best for him.

    I bet he'll miss the perks of the job, like free toothpaste from the CPU fabs

    For some reason he missed Prescott off his list of CPU ranges. I can't imagine why.

    You should have a read of some of his stuff on twitter - he is an interesting character indeed!

    Technically, AMD still does have lower single-thread performance than Intel, that's why Ryzen has so many cores to make up for it. Although Ryzen did close the gab quite a bit.

    When a guy like this leaves a major company like intel, something is wrong.

    Re: Intel's principal engineer quits for 'new adventures'

    Personally, I wish M'seur Piednoel every success in his new job.

    (Interesting literal translation of his name as "Feet of Christmas" so perhaps I should hope that all his Christmas's come at once.)

    But it's a pity he engages in spats on anti-social media though, the early part of that 'thread' needs a good bit of moderating - he wouldn't have got away with it here. )

    This is always a cheap dig at the best of times, as if the writer is telegraphing his/her intellectual superiority over another person on the basis of a typo (yet you didn't notice "publically" [sic] in the article itself?).

    But in this case, the guy literally designs the best consumer CPUs in the world. The phrase "sit down" has never been more applicable.
