I hope he installs an aftermarket shiatsink.

You know you're a shiatty CEO when the stock price jumps 7 percent when everyone finds out you're being replaced.

Stock price popped on the news. Shows how shiatty he really was.

He probably got a $25M, a stock compensation package, and use of a private jet for a year.

Hopefully this one manages to keep his floppy out of his coworkers' RAM slots, unlike the CEO before last

I can think of a few ryzens for him to work harder.

I suppose that will be a fun board meeting.

CEO: 'What do we need to do to turn this around?'

Board: 'Sell more chips.'

CEO: 'Why can't we sell more chips?'

After looking at each other for two minutes, one board member whispers 'We don't know how to make more chips.'

Way to be diverse.  Replace one white male with another.  There wasn't a gay black single mother available to take the job?  Or did they not even bother looking for minority representation?

The replacement is a Christian. Next chip will be measured in PPS -- prayers per second.

/ Will also feature cache in the afterlife.

Pat Gelsinger is probably one of the best qualified people for the job. I suppose they could have brought back Renee James, and I am sure she was considered during the previous CEO search. The more surprising thing about this hire is Gelsinger was not hired instead of Shaw.  It is not like Gelsinger's name came out of thin air. There had been expectations he would be a candidate in previous searches. With his seasoning and success with VMWare, he will likely be a good change for Intel. Hopefully Ann Kelleher can get the fabs back on track.

I'm thinking he probably is getting more than that.  His salary is $5m/yr, so his parachute package is probably 10x that.  Also, he's got a butt-ton (it's a technical term) of shares already for comp., and will most likely going to get a lot more..

First thing on the docket, outsource production to TSMC.  Does not bode well for the supplier of their steppers....

Yeah, I don't understand the metric system. Sorry
