Intel has reshuffled its top executives following the announcement of a 12-month delay to the 7nm process node. Unfortunately, that means previous incumbent, Dr. Murthy Renduchintala, Intel’s chief engineering officer, will leave the company next week and his remit, the Technology, Systems Architecture, and Client Group (TSCG), divided up.

As Renduchintala steps away, Dr. Ann Kelleher will take the lead in technology development. This role will focus on the 7nm and 5nm process nodes, following a ramp-up in 10nm manufacturing. There’s an awful lot of pressure on this position to deliver results, especially considering Intel’s 10nm process node was heavily delayed and its 7nm node now slipping into the future.
