    I certainly didn't see that coming. "Kicking" Pat Gelsinger back at Intel, and taking the throne no less.

    I hope he'll stock up on some rest and relaxtion before taking the reigns in mid-February since heavy is the head that wears the crown.

    Re: Intel appoints Pat Gelsinger as new CEO

    This is without doubt one of the best things to happen to Intel in the last 20 years.

    I know Pat - I have spent time and talked to him, he always wanted to be CEO and was side stepped so moved on to VMWARE which he did an incredible job at.

    I think Intel, it's staff and shareholders should be very pleased with this news.

    It's not going to be a 1 year fix - it's going to take 4 or 5 years to see the impact of this, but in the long term this is incredible news.

    Re: Intel appoints Pat Gelsinger as new CEO

    So does this mean Intel have finally appointed someone who understands the products they make as CEO?

    Re: Intel appoints Pat Gelsinger as new CEO

    first tip for the new pres, get them releasing drivers for win8 as it's still an officially supported OS. If that means people can get them to work on win7 then so be it, but saying "we're just doing win10" becuase MS want them to is a joke.

    Re: Intel appoints Pat Gelsinger as new CEO

    Admittedly looking at this from an outside perspective, but this does seem like a very positive thing for Intel, and has the big three (AMD/Nvidia/Intel) with an engineering lead.

    Even if you're rooting for the competition, competition itself is generally a good thing for us as customers, the lack of which can be seen in climbing prices. And in the current situation it would likely help if Intel could bring their manufacturing and supply chain might to bear - I do look forward to seeing what they can do with GPUs but as always, hope for a fair and productive competitive landscape.

    What's the betting his first action is to call in the xe team and ask for an update on larrabee#2 followed by his second task, announcing it was a successful learning exercise for on die graphics but that it won't be taken further.

    They are same just look at price and have a powerful GPU. (AMD Zen2 or Intel 10th gen with at least 6 cores 12 threads)........caveat: AMD Zen2/Zen3 use less electricity.
