Intel’s Skylake Visionary returns to lead client chip development

Intel announced that as CEO Pat Gelsinger continues to rebuild its engineering roster, it will bring back another well-known chip architect and 28-year veteran Shlomit Weiss. Weiss will lead all of Intel’s consumer chip development and design, and appears to succeed Uri Frank, who recently left to lead the Google SoC team. After four years as senior vice president of silicon engineering at Mellanox/Nvidia, Weiss returned to Intel, where she was responsible for managing the company’s network chip design team, which has more than 1,000 people. Nevertheless, her previous achievements during Intel’s service are equally impressive.

During her previous tenure at Intel, Weiss received Intel’s highest achievement award for her work in developing the company’s dual-core architecture, which is the company’s highest award. Later, she was commissioned to lead the team that developed Intel’s famous Sandy Bridge and Skylake processors.

Intel’s Skylake may be one of the company’s most famous chip architectures, simply because the company has delivered multiple iterations of the same design over a period of six years when dealing with the effects of its 10-nanometer delay. Perhaps proving the potential of the design, Skylake played an important role in helping Intel survive the incredibly long delays between processing nodes-the architecture spanned Intel’s 6th to 10th generation Core processors and Multi-generation server chips.Intel has largely conceded AMD’s 10% overall market share (About 8% for servers and 10% for desktops/laptops), but given the severity of the company’s delays, this is surprisingly limited.
