Few weeks ago, we broke the story about Eric Demers leaving AMD, and landing in Qualcomm in a very significant role. Following that departure, we wondered is the next big announcement regarding AMD will be a departure of another key figure or rather a signing of a big name that will turn the tide.
Unfortunately, this story is of the former kind. We have just learned that Godfrey Cheng, one of old timers from the days of ATI Technologies just resigned from his position of Director, Client Technologies at Advanced Micro Devices. This position followed his former role of Director of Technical Marketing, which as we know was the most successfully launched processor for the company. Fusion APU launch was synchronized throughout the company segments, and the results are as you all know it.
Godfrey Cheng confirmed on Facebook that after almost 12 years at ATI and AMD he resigned last week. He will remain at the company for approximately the next week.
