AMD GPU Exec Joins Intel

Last week, we reported on the deal for Intel to buy AMD GPUs, and we also saw a very positive article from Dr Jon Peddie that highlighted that Raja Kudori, a veteran of AMD, was leaving to spend time with his family. However, it has now been reported that Kudori has recently joined Intel’s newly formed Core and Visual Computing group.

Analyst Comment

I suspect that this move not only helps Intel’s graphics division, but also should help Intel to do more to address the other development area in GPUs which is in non-graphics applications. Deep AI and new technologies are sometimes best done on GPUs and Intel will not want to concede that market to Nvidia, or to AMD. (BR)
