The former leader of Advanced Micro Devices' graphics chips unit is jumping to rival chipmaker Intel Corp. Raja Koduri announced his resignation from AMD on Tuesday after serving as senior vice president and chief of architecture for the Sunnyvale-based company's two-year-old Radeon Technology Group. By Wednesday morning, reports began floating that he might join Santa Clara-based Intel but the company didn't make an official announcement until Wednesday afternoon.
The whole thing makes no sense to me on both accounts. Why is Intel using an AMD graphics chip in a MCM when they could have used NVidia and is Intel planning on developing a competitive graphics device of their own?
