According to sources at Chipzilla, Pat Gelsinger penned a memo expressing his disappointment at Jeff Richardson's move. Obviously the INQ would breach copyright if we just published Pat's memo to the staff, so let us paraphrase.
Richardson has joined Abhi Talwalker at LSI Logic. Now Diane Bryant and Kirk Skaugen will run "two in a box" at Intel for the serving general managers of the server platform group.
I heard when I was out in Ole Taipei that there were defections. In fact, I heard that Abhi was rushed out of the building when he announced his decision to move to LSI Logic.
Gelsinger told his group that they should consider staying at Intel "because of the exciting news of Apple becoming a major customer of Intel's as well."
