We have known for quite some time that Intel is working on its own discrete GPU. Back in November, the company announced the hiring of Raja Koduri -- formerly of AMD -- and stated that he would "expand Intel’s leading position in integrated graphics for the PC market with high-end discrete graphics solutions for a broad range of computing segments." Intel today provided one additional tidbit of information regarding its discrete “Arctic Sound” GPU aspirations: a launch date. According to a rather brief tweet, Intel says that its GPU family will be available in 2020,... Read more...
During the summer of 2017, Radeon Technologies Group head Raja Kodori took a leave of absence from the company, and we later learned why -- he had taken a position at Intel as the head of the newly-formed Core and Visual Computing Group. While that was definitely a big blow for AMD, the company has announced the addition of two critical members to the Radeon Technologies Group: Mike Rayfield and David Wang. Mike Rayfield arrives at AMD after stints at Micron and NVIDIA (where he was instrumental in the development of the Tegra platform), bringing over 30 years of experience in the technology industry....

Back in September, AMD Radeon Technologies Group (RTG) chief Raja Koduri took a sabbatical following the launch of the Radeon RX Vega series of graphics cards. At the time, Koduri explained, "Vega was personally hard on me as well and I used up a lot of family credits during this journey. I have decided to take a time-off in Q4 to spend time with my family." Today, we received word that Koduri has left AMD, and the company was adamant to let everyone know that its roadmap will stay intact despite the departure. AMD’s statement was clearly crafted to let customers and investors know that there is... Read more...
AMD's Raja Koduri, the head of the Radeon Technologies Group, announced back in September that he was going to step away from AMD for a sabbatical after Vega launched. Koduri said that he was stepping aside to spend more time with his family. Originally, he had planned to return to his position in December, but those plans have changed. This is also the same executive who took to social media to answer questions about Vega when the GPU first launched. Koduri has now announced that he will be leaving the company, and there is currently no clear indication of what Koduri might be doing in the future.... Read more...
AMD's Raja Koduri is stepping aside from the day-to-day operations of leading the company's Radeon Technology Group to spend more time with his family. Barring any further announcements going forward, this will be a temporary sabbatical starting September 25, with Koduri planning to return in December. In the meantime, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su will step in to lead the company's graphics division. A knee-jerk reaction this news, as first learned by Fudzilla, is to assume there is drama brewing behind the scenes in light of AMD's Vega architecture not quite living up to the hype. However, that does not... Read more...
Raja Koduri, head of AMD's Radeon Technologies Group, is back in the United States after spending two weeks in India, a combination of a vacation and visiting AMD's engineering sites in Hyderabad and Bangalore. While he was gone, there has been much chatter about AMD's recently launched Radeon RX Vega 64 and Radeon RX Vega 56 graphics card for gamers, including perceived price hikes and supply falling short of demand. If you are wondering what Koduri's take is on all that has transpired, you need only visiting his Twitter stream. "I try to stay away from social media while traveling to be present... Read more...
There is an immense amount of excitement building around AMD's next generation Vega GPU architecture, both from outside observers like us and from within. As to the latter, AMD's senior vice president and chief architect of its Radeon Technologies Group, Raja Koduri, and the division's senior marketing director, Chris Hook, both teased a Vega announcement on Twitter that is expected later today. Starting with the head honcho, here is what Koduri threw out to the social media space: Ok..complete the sentence..we stand today on the edge of a ......

Big things are happening in graphics over at Advanced Micro Devices. That first became clear when AMD elevated Raja Koduri to head up its newly formed Radeon Technologies Group earlier this year, and in the two months since then, he's been busy planning out the future, which he recently discussed with industry analysts, according to Patrick Moorhead, an analyst who writes about disruptive companies, technologies, and usage models.Koduri expanded on what AMD's planning with its graphics driver software and how it will play a key role in growing the new RTG's business over the next couple of years....

If there’s one constant in the tech industry, it’s change. Well-rounded and highly sought after executives come and go, either moving from between tech firms or departing the industry altogether to pursue other interests (ahem, Steve Ballmer). Even tech companies themselves go through a metamorphosis of sorts, as we’ve seen a once powerhouse in the graphics industry, 3Dfx, become swallowed up by its fiercest rival, NVIDIA. Chipmaker AMD would later go on to acquire ATI — a pairing at the time that seemed a bit odd to many industry observers. AMD has once again come to a crossroads with respect... Read more...
