Mr Wilcox reported about his job change on his LinkedIn page: “I am very pleased to announce that I have started my new position as Research Scientist at Intel as CTO of the Client SoC Architecture Engineering Team.”… This is an interesting permutation when you consider that he oversaw the development of its own processors at Apple to replace Intel chips. The Arm-based M1 processor debuted on the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Mac mini, iPad Pro, and iMac; In 2021 it was replaced by the more powerful M1 Pro and M1 Max. Wilcox helped design the T2 security chip, which is also based on the Arm architecture.

At Apple, Jeff Wilcox spent 8 years as chief engineer at Intel, where he was lead architect for custom PC chipsets for 3 years. He also spent time at Magnum Semiconductor, a video compression technology company, and NVIDIA.
