Mooly held various technical and management positions with the chipmaker throughout the three decades, where he says: "I have had the privilege to lead many Intel groups in a long line of jobs. Beyond that I was privileged to work with creative people who over the years became good friends". Eden joined the company back in 1992, where he was quickly put to work on the new Pentium MMX processor at the time.

 

After that, he worked on Centrino, and is considered the 'father' of the original Pentium M, as well as the Core 2 Duo which saw Intel doing incredibly well from 2003-2010. From 2009-2012, Eden was the Vice President and General Manager of the PC Client Group for Intel, where he was in control of platform planning, architecture, enabling and marketing Intels' PC solutions for the desktop, as well as mobile computing solutions.
