AMD Radeon Technology Group, senior viceprezident a generálny riaditeľ, Mike Rayfield rezignovať



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'.

Jeho dočasným nástupcom bude David Wang (obrázok vpravo dole), súčasný viceprezident strojárstva v RTG. V AMD už má za sebou bohatú históriu, pracoval na grafických kartách ATI / AMD ako inžinier GPU od R300 do GCN 1.0 v časovom období od rokov 2000 do 2012. Podľa modelu duálneho vedenia AMD, ktorý bol implementovaný po Raja Koduri rezignácia, Wang a Rayfield spolupracovali na vedení skupiny RTG. Vďaka tomu by mal byť prechod povinností relatívne plynulý, aj keď úloha Wanga je iba dočasná a bude zaujímavé zistiť, koho AMD vyberie ako dlhodobého nástupcu Rayfielda.
