Who is considered the rock star of the Silicon Engineering world announced his immediate retirement from the role of VP of Intel chip engineering for personal reasons
Those who know the key people in the silicon engineering and development industry probably also know Jim Keller, who has participated in successful development teams in recent decades. Keller was responsible for developing K8's architecture AMD (It came from Athlon 64 processors). Also involved in the development of Apple's A4 and A5 processors before moving on to develop chipsets inAMD And Tesla.
Among the most famous products in recent years that have been participating in their development has been Zen architecture AMD, Which later became a series of Ryzen processors, a series that has undergone a significant and dramatic change in the world ofx86.
In April of 2018, Keller joined Intel as the VP of Giant Silicon Engineering. In that role, he worked with teams to develop future architectures that we hear a lot more recently (Lakefield, And in the future Willow Cove and Golden Cove architectures). His job was mainly to guide and guide the teams on the safe path to a better silicon future for the company.
The reasons for Keller's specific departure are unknown, however Intel She points out that this is a departure under personal circumstances. Keller will continue to serve as a consultant to Intel Over the next six months as part of the overlapping process of replacing his position, and monitoring the engineering and manufacturing programs.
Keller is known as a kind of engineering mercenary who joins companies for relatively short periods of time in order to shape the technology of the future before embarking on a new journey, so that his departure is not a complete surprise or pattern of behavior. He has done so in a variety of companies in recent decades.
Here at HWzone we got to know Mr. Keller up close And even have a dialogue with him About the future of silicon processors. We have no doubt we will hear about his various developments in the future.
