The Man Behind 'Sandy Bridge'

Editor's Note: With the imminent launch of Intel’s next-generation Core processors at the International Consumer Electronics Show on Jan. 5, we thought it would be interesting to hear a perspective from the person who has been leading the chip design teams responsible for Intel’s latest flagship product. Ron Friedman is vice president and general manager of Intel’s Microprocessor and Chipset Development group responsible for microprocessor design teams in California and Israel, including Intel’s new “Sandy Bridge” architecture

Previously, Friedman was design manager for the original Pentium M processor, He was also involved in the design of the next-generation mobile processor code named “Merom” — which would become the first mobile variant of the new Intel “Core” architecture, sold as the Intel Core 2 Duo.
