As Intel's quest for a new CEO passes six months, one name that has been on the company's list but hasn't been previously reported is Apple's Johny Srouji.

As SVP of hardware technologies, Srouji has overseen the company's push into, among other things, designing more of its own silicon. While not an insider, Srouji does have quite a bit of experience with the chipmaker, having worked at its Israel facility from 1990 to 2005.

Intel declined to comment.

Meanwhile, Bloomberg reported Monday that several executives that had been under consideration are now out of the running. These include former Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha, and two former Intel executives Anand Chandrasekher and Renee James.

The big picture: In case it's been so long that you've forgotten, Intel has been looking for a CEO since cutting ties with Brian Krzanich for a consensual relationship with an Intel employee. 

  • CFO Bob Swan has been interim CEO and is not currently a candidate for the gig full-time.
