Respected Intel VP resigning in wake of reorg

|About: Intel Corporation (INTC)|By:, SA News Editor

Dadi Perlmutter, an Intel (INTC -1.8%) VP who presided over the company's far-reaching Architecture Group (responsible for much of Intel's CPU design and manufacturing), will be leaving the company, effective Feb. 20, 2014.

Perlmutter, once viewed as a potential successor to Paul Otellini as CEO, oversaw the '03 launch of Intel's Centrino notebook CPU line, and the '06 launch of its Core CPU line.

His departure comes a few months after CEO Brian Krzanich assumed direct responsibility for the Architecture Group from Perlmutter as part of a reorg.
