I wonder if any of these clever, obscenely overpaid suits will recognise the fact that all of Intel's current problems can be traced back to when they had no (serious) competition in the desktop space and they sat on their fat lazy arses, shovelling out pointless CPU revisions for 5yrs with no value to the consumer...

That is why the are sacking those overpaid suts that sat on their lazy arses. There will probably be a few of them sent home but they will report only on the biggest slackers.

Intel's problems stem from the company being controlled by financials and not engineering. They focused on diversification because there was no more market share to gain with x86.

Delays in 10nm didn't matter, it wasn't like there was any real competition. What? You want to do X to fix the node? That will cost a lot, it's best to just refine what we have and focus on 7nm, that will be easier and cheaper.

Instead of trying to innovate within their own market, Intel tried to diversify and kept buying up start-ups, practically all of which have been failures from the outside. Everything was fine and dandy so long as they made money and the share price kept rising.

Now Intel needs to rebuild its culture, it needs engineering leadership and enough paranoia to seriously be working to create the best processors and innovate beyond adding x performance to their CPUs per year.

They should give Jim Keller a shot at the top spot.

You can't really blame intel for their complacency, it is human nature after all.
But instead of growing fat and lazy, they really should have taken the new blood and injected some innovations, or at the very least consider their new ideas.


Jim at Adored TV has recently covered Intel's serious managerial problems and now to take intel back to top tier, is going to take monumental effort.

You could argue that Apple over the past 10 years were complacent, and on the face of it they were. In the background they were working hard to try new products, hence they are now back to ARM.

Steve Jobs basically said the same thing in 1995: https://www.businessinsider.com/stev...polies-2014-11

And it remains true to this day.

I hope for their sake they have not burned their bridges. Because if they have? I wish them luck. That's not sarcasm either, that's genuine. They will need serious luck.
