After spending $15 billion on Mobileye and unwinding efforts in wearables and other gadgets, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich says he is ready to take a break from making big changes at the chip giant. "I think you can only take on so much at a time and you need to stop and breathe and let the organization breathe and re-form," Krzanich said in a brief interview after his appearance at TechCrunch Disrupt yesterday.

Despite giving up on a few projects, Krzanich said Intel's biggest bets are paying off. "Our Altera investment has been great," he said, referring to another of Intel's 11-figure deals.
