"Intel’s (INTC) competitive advantage is its expertise in manufacturing," writes Quartz's Christopher Mims, making the case ex-manufacturing chief Brian Krzanich is a better choice for CEO than an outsider. Though its mobile processor lines have lagged in adopting its most advanced processes, Intel's PC CPUs are made on a 22nm process at a time when Qualcomm, Nvidia, and others are at 28nm ... and they should get to 14nm while rivals are at 20nm. If Krzanich can eliminate the lag, it could give Intel an edge when battling for mobile design wins, at least when 4G modem integration (where Qualcomm has a lead) isn't required. (previous: I, II)

    That was the alleged Street's expectation that Intel would go outside due to the lack of mobile presence.

    And then there will be AMD system architecture on Intel's production technology.
