AMD Radeon Technology Group, višji podpredsednik in generalni direktor, Mike Rayfield, da bo odstopil



AMD's Radeon Technology Group (RTG) continues to be in a state of flux, with another executive leaving the company. This time, RTG General Manager and Senior Vice President, Mike Rayfield (pictured on the left below) will be resigning by year's end, marking the second time in a calendar year the group has been devoid of a formal leader. Rayfield previously worked for NVIDIA as the General Manager of their Tegra business unit, and was Vice President and General Manager of Micron's mobile storage business unit prior to that. Having served in all these roles for quite some time, it is somewhat of a surprise to see him leaving AMD so quickly, having only just joined the company back in February 2018. With that said, AMD has said the reason for this departure is so that he can 'spend more time with his family and pursue his personal passions'.

David Wang (slika spodaj), trenutni višji podpredsednik inženiringa na RTG, bo njegov začasni naslednik. V AMD-ju že ima zgodovino, saj je na grafičnih karticah ATI / AMD kot inženir GPU-ja delal od R300 do GCN 1.0 v časovnem obdobju od leta 2000 do 2012. Pod AMD-ovim dvojnim vodstvenim modelom, ki je bil implementiran po Raji Koduriju odstop, tako Wang kot Rayfield sta skupaj vodila skupino RTG. Zahvaljujoč temu bi moral biti prehod dolžnosti razmeroma nemoten, čeprav je Wangova vloga le začasna, zanimivo pa bo videti, koga AMD izbere kot Rayfieldovega dolgoletnega naslednika.
