    Intel is becoming like MS and Apple now. Buying off the competitors talent.

    I suppose AMD should be flattered??

    Haha

    Well, main weakness of intel CPUs is that CPU is not glued with IHS.I am not sure if Jim can make cores out of TIM but time will tell. If he can't pull it off, I don't think anyone will.

    Well, except Jim Keller left AMD to work somewhere else before he even got to Intel. He worked at Tesla for the last two years.

    ^ You're


    Fwiw, nev does have an outstanding point in the sense that he hasn't been working actively for AMD before moving for Intel. Where most of the news is is that the guy was behind two of the more successful processor series for AMD is now going to work for the other team.

    Imho Raja's move to Intel seemed more like what Embra's talking about, moreso than with Keller

    Jim Keller is not an AMD employee. He left AMD long ago. He works in many companies. He goes, he designs, he leaves.
    As for Raja. AMD boot him before Intel decided to pick him up.

    Damn it!
    I've read recently describing whether he was booted or he left. And now I've forgotten :)

    I think it was a gkick... something along the lines he was scheming with Intel away from Lisa's eyes. Plx don't kill me if I am wrong...

    Looks like Intel could use help making CPU "glue."
