AMD/ATI to cut 2000 jobs?

Posted on Tuesday, Oct 10 2006 @ 11:28 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
The Inquirer says we can expect a job cut from AMD just like Intel's recent big job cut, but obviously in a much smaller scale:
If AMD cut 10,500 people, well the halls in Austin and Sunnyvale would be pretty empty, a workforce of 7 would have a lot to do on a per capita basis. In any case, there are strong rumors of cuts in the merged DAAMIT organization, but things are a little hazy. Some are saying around 1000 from each side of the organization, give or take a bit will be gone, but this seems awfully high to us.

There are no specifics on what is going, but there are some obvious redundancies, especially on the non-technical side of things.
An announcement of this job cut is expected in mid-November.
