Intel has two personnel changes, and it is also a high-end "cut corner".

First, John Sell, who has been with Microsoft for 14 years, joined Intel (May this year), worked in security technology and served as an Intel Fellow, reporting to Raja Koduri. Sell ​​is the lead architect for Microsoft's next-generation console (Project Scarlett), and previously Xbox One/One X's chip work was led by Sell.

Prior to Microsoft, Sell also worked at 3DO, Apple (1988-1992), and AMD (1997-2005).


In addition, Manisha Pandya, who has worked at Apple for 10 years, also quits Intel. Pandy leads many hardware teams at Apple, including power supply design, charging, sensor technology, and analog IP for Apple products. Pandya also works under Raja and is responsible for energy efficiency, especially alone.

Interestingly, the three generations of Xbox under Sell have adopted AMD's semi-custom SoC, which is re-discovered, and Intel is really interested in veterans who understand AMD's product technology.

There are also analysis that Intel has been overshadowed by the underlying security vulnerabilities of the chip this year, and AMD relies on the architectural advantage "immunity", Intel needs to steal the teacher.
