AMD Radeon Technology Group, Senior Vice President und General Manager, Mike Rayfield tritt zurück



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 (Bild rechts unten), der derzeitige Senior Vice President of Engineering bei RTG, wird sein vorläufiger Nachfolger. Er hat bereits eine lange Geschichte bei AMD, nachdem er in einem Zeitraum von 2000 bis 2012 als GPU-Ingenieur von R300 bis GCN 1.0 an ATI / AMD-Grafikkarten gearbeitet hatte Rücktritt, sowohl Wang als auch Rayfield haben zusammengearbeitet, um die RTG-Gruppe zu leiten. Dank dessen sollte der Übergang der Aufgaben relativ reibungslos verlaufen, auch wenn Wangs Rolle nur vorübergehend ist, und es wird interessant sein zu sehen, wen AMD als langfristigen Nachfolger von Rayfield auswählt.
