An Intel spokesperson said it does not plan to replace Renduchintala's role as chief engineering officer or as group president Technology, Systems Architecture and Client Group, which is being split into separate teams.

Intel announced last month that Keller was leaving. The company suffered two years of delay in its current 10nm chips, which is raising questions on the company's business model.

Murthy, a veteran of the semiconductor industry who served as Qualcomm president for 12 years, joined Intel in 2015.

Technology Development. Led by Dr. Ann Kelleher, this team will now lead Intel technology development focusing on 7nm and 5nm processes.

Design Engineering is going to be led by Josh Walden in the interim while Intel "conducts an accelerated global search to identify a permanent world-class leader".

This is part of a number of changes happening in Intel's executive leadership team. "We have the most diverse portfolio of leadership products in our history and, as a result of our six pillars of innovation and disaggregation strategy, much more flexibility in how we build, package and deliver those products for our customers".

The change comes after Intel announced that production problems have led to the delay of its next generation chips. The primary driver is the yield of Intel's 7nm process, which based on recent data, is now trending approximately twelve months behind the company's internal target.

But don't worry guys, Intel is aware of the issues - and that the company has "root-caused the issue and believe there are no fundamental roadblocks" explains Swan.

This means that Intel had originally planned its debut of 7nm processors towards the tail end of 2021, and that will now not happen until 2022 - and quite possibly, more like 2023.

"It makes selling the Intel story a little tougher", they said. Last week, the company had said the smaller, faster 7-nanometer chipmaking technology was six months behind schedule and it would have to rely more on outside chipmakers to keep its products competitive.
