Intel's Jim Keller gets interviewed

Jim Keller is one of the more recognizable names in the processor industry. He played a big role in the development of the AMD K8 and Zen designs, as well as Apple's A4 and A5 SoCs. A couple of months ago, the tech community was shocked to learn that Keller took up a position at Intel. He's now six weeks into the jobs and granted AnandTech an interview, which you can read over here. Here's a little snippet about how he got hired:
Ian Cutress: For a number of my generation, it was a shock to hear that the famous Jim Keller was set and poised to join Intel. Is it like a Formula 1 driver wanting to drive for Ferrari - did you expect that Intel was going to be on the cards at some point in your career? Why join Intel?

Jim Keller: To be honest, I didn't really ever think about it much. In my career, you know, some people have asked me how I planned it, and the honest truth is I've really just kind of worked on the next interesting thing. And so, I've had a bunch, at least to me, of almost random jobs and interesting experiences and they've all been interesting. When this came up (at Intel), Murthy, Brian, Raja kind of pinged me after Raja joined. I talked to them at some length before I joined Tesla, well to BK [Brian Krzanich] a couple of times at least, and then they pinged me again later. They offered me an opportunity that seemed really interesting so, I took it.
