We know that Paul Otellini will be leaving his position as CEO of Intel this year and The Inquirer just heard about what is happening to senior management because of his departure.  There are eight newly promoted senior executives at Intel and it is likely that one of them may be in line for the chair as Intel is most likely to look internally for their next leader.  On the other hand, it seems that investors are questioning some of Intel's past decisions, particularly in Fab development, which might bring pressure to bear for an new, external hire to become the next leader.  Keep an eye out as Intel's inside might be headed for drastic changes.

"Last year Intel announced that Otellini will be leaving the company in May, concluding what is generally regarded as a successful tenure leading the chipmaker. Now the firm's top brass have been jockeying for position, with eight senior executives being promoted closer to the CEO's chair."

And still after 3 years no Intel HD graphics driver updates for my Toshiba C655 laptop first generation core I3 processor, and no Intel HD graphics driver updates for my Samsung series 3 laptop (Sandy Bridge i7)! My Asus laptop ( Sandy Bridge i5) has genaric Intel HD graphics drivers, and I get regular Intel HD graphics driver updates for it! What is this deal with OEMs customizing the Intel HD graphics drivers on their laptops, then never updating the drivers? So what if haswell has better graphics, if Intel is going to let the OEMs customize the HD graphics drivers and then never offer any updates! Intel offers no way for me find out if the laptop, that I may want to purchase, has Intel genaric HD graphics drivers, as I need to have administrator privileges to install the web components from the Intel website that will tell me if the Intel HD graphics drivers are genaric or not, Hard to do on a computer that is a display model at the local computer store! Intel has no intention of requireing OEMs to keep their customizied HD graphics updated, Intel just wants to sell their silicon, to hell with the laptop owners who are stuck with graphics software that will not work properly without HD graphics driver updates! I have one computer out of three that has ever had a Intel HD graphics driver update! Thanks to you, Paul Otellini!!!!
