AMD's Radeon Technologies Group Boss Raja Koduri Leaves, Rumored to be Defecting to Intel

Accepted submission by takyon at 2017-11-08 21:06:00

The boss of AMD's Radeon [] Technologies Group is leaving the company []:

Remember when we reported on the Radeon Technologies Group boss, Raja Koduri [], taking a leave of absence with an intent to return to the fold in December? That isn't going to happen, according to a memo Raja has written to his team, because today is his last day in the job.

[...] Our sources tell us that Lisa Su, AMD CEO, will continue to oversee RTG for the foreseeable future. AMD appreciates that such an important role cannot be the sole domain of the CEO, and to this end is actively searching for a successor to Raja. We expect the appointment to be made within a few months.

The rumor mill suggests that Koduri will take a job at Intel [], which would come at an interesting time now that Intel is including AMD graphics and High Bandwidth Memory in some of its products [].

Also at HotHardware [] and Fudzilla [].
