The transfer of specialists from one company to another in the IT world is the norm. But in the new case, the situation looks ironic.
Intel got Jeff Wilcox on its staff, and lured him out of Apple. The irony is that at Apple, Wilcox, after eight years as director of Mac systems architecture, was also responsible for the concept and products of Apple Silicon and, accordingly, for Apple’s abandonment of Intel processors. And now this person will be engaged in architectures already in Intel itself as the technical director of the design group. Wilcox will be responsible for architecture development for the company’s client SoCs.
The story becomes even more interesting if you know that Wilcox has previously worked at Intel, and for 12 years.
