What just happened? Like the infamous Steve Ballmer, Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger is a man who isn’t afraid to speak his mind, albeit in a less manic way than the former Microsoft CEO. The Blue Team boss recently posted a video recounting his past 11 months at the helm of the company, including the launch of Alder Lake, which he says left AMD “in the dark”. mirror”.
Gelsinger’s LinkedIn video lists 11 highlights from Intel over the past year while looking to the future. Eleven is both the number of years he’s been away from the company (Gelsinger left in September 2009 to become CEO/President of EMC) and the number of months he’s been back.
Much of Gelsinger’s top 11 consists of the general fluff expected of CEOs. He describes his personal superpower as the “passion and optimism” he has that “technology can truly change and improve the lives of every person on the planet”, which is unlikely to get him into the X- Men.
The CEO also notes that Intel’s plan for five nodes in four years – Intel 7, Intel 4, Intel 3, Intel 20A and Intel 18A – is on schedule or ahead of schedule, before talking about Alder Lake. The 12th Gen chips have been among Intel’s best-received processors for years, earning excellent reviews from critics and consumers alike, and their release coincided with AMD’s loss of steam ground. Survey for the first time in months. We’ll see how they perform in the laptop market from next month.
“Alder Lake. All of a sudden…Boom! We’re back in the game. AMD in the rearview mirror of customers, and they’ll never be in the windshield again; we’re just ahead of the market,” said Gelsinger.
Gelsinger may be full of confidence against AMD right now, but the red team has a lot to do. CEO Lisa Su announced the Ryzen 7 5800X3D at CES, which the company calls the number one gaming processor. Su also teased the Zen 4 architecture which is expected to drop later this year. But whoever wins this battle, having more options is generally good news for consumers.
