Pentium guru to retire

Albert Yu, Intel's longtime chip guru, will retire this September. Yu, 61, is a 30-year Intel veteran. Most recently, he worked as the leader of Intel's international expansion efforts. But for 16 of his 30 years at the chip giant, Yu was devoted to PC processors. As senior vice president and general manager of the Intel Architecture Group, his most recent processor-related position, Yu oversaw the development of several new chip architectures, including Intel's newest Pentium 4. "Albert has been a key contributor to Intel's success over the years, and we wish him well in retirement," said Intel CEO Craig Barrett in a statement. Yu's last day will be Sept. 5.
