Executive VP and co-GM of Intel Dadi (David) Perlmutter has worked with the company for more than a quarter-of-a-century. During his time at the firm, he has been on top of the development of some of Intel’s most ingenious technologies. Perlmutter has thus witnessed a lot of changes and advances in the technological world through Intel, having worked with math co-processors before the first-generation Pentium, and the MMX technology which launched the era of the multimedia PC. In the late 1990s, it was with Perlmutter at the helm that Timna was developed. This was an integrated, all-purpose CPU concept that Intel later abrogated during the shift toward NetBurst architecture. Perlmutter also led the augmentation of the Centrino platform and the Pentium M, and in responsible for the future Merom micro-architecture platform.
