Huh; I don't know why they didn't do it. I mean NVIDIA's expertise could of given AMD an upper hand (in microcomputing, which AMD falters at at the moment) and it certainly could of benefited AMD more then ATI. I guess they had their reasons for not allowing him to become CEO but he could of been a good CEO and he could of prevented the stuff that happened at AMD, stuff like awkward staff/CEO replacements and "Bulldozer". Don't get me wrong, AMD is doing well in graphics and they have managed to slowly curb the market with good GPU's but they could of had a winning combination with NVIDIA by their side.
Maybe AMD gaining market share with it's graphics is a good thing, they're trying to make the best of a bad situation by turning it around. Still, profits that aren't there with the big boys are cause for concern; so is money lost.

Ruiz may have dug AMD in a hole somewhat, but I'm not sure letting Jen-Hsun become the CEO would have been a great move. I mean, NVIDIA's last financial report was not that great for a reason. AMD DID overpay for ATI though (this coming from a Canadian with a history of radeon cards). Hindsight is 20-20.
However, the new 'fusion' strategy looks interesting. AMD has never lacked good ideas, they have almost always sucked in the execution/implementation. If Read can correct this execution problem, they will make some good money.
