AMD Loses one of Key GPGPU people to Intel
12/1/2010 by: Theo Valich
Ever since project Larrabee came crashing down and the inevitable oust of the executives and some highly-paid engineers and marketeers, Intel has been laying low and hiring people with expertise in GPGPU i.e. GPU Computing.
One recent hire got our attention though - Michael Chu, former Product Manager for ATI STREAM i.e. GPGPU business division called it a day at Red team and decided to switch to a Blue team. Michael's new job is cryptically named "Experience Product Manager", without the name of exact business unit.
We have contacted Michael and got a cryptic answer, so it's easy to suspect that Intel is up to something when it comes to GPGPU and massivelly parallel computing, then again - Intel is always up to something, you can ask ARM folks about that.
In any case, we wish Michael all the best in his new career.
Michael Chu, AMD, Intel, INTC, GPGPU, GPU, ATI, STREAM, ATI STREAM, Advanced Micro Devices, CUDA
