Sun's top chip architect heads to Microsoft

Posted on Thursday, April 09 2009 @ 19:05:23 CEST by

eWeek reports former Sun chip architect Marc Tremblay has been hired by Microsoft as a distinguished engineer. It's believed Tremblay will help a unit of Microsoft that focuses on parallel computing, green computing and adaptive computing.
According to reports in the Wall Street Journal and other outlets, Tremblay will be joining Microsoft's Strategic Software/Silicon Architectures group, also known as SiArch.

But, you might ask, what would a software company want with somebody like Tremblay?

Well, the WSJ hazards a notion:

"Stepping back, it’s easy to see how a person with Tremblay’s talents could help the company. Microsoft’s Xbox division, for example, has to think about which microprocessors to consider in designing a follow-up to its current gaming console. Its Windows group, meanwhile, has to design new versions of the operating system for the rapid proliferation of chips with many electronic brains rather than one or two."
