Last week news hit the wire that NVIDIA saw the departure of Mike Rayfield, the company's mobile business unit leader.
Rayfield left NVIDIA on August 24th, 2012, details on his next venture were unknown, but Bright Side of News did some digging and found out that he took on well deserved vacation time before taking up a new job as senior executive at Micron Technology.
Rayfield will lead the memory company's low-power DRAM unit, focusing on LPDDR2, LPDDR3, DDR4, DDR4L and ultimately LPDDR4.
Currently, it is not certain who will lead the Mobile BU in NVIDIA, but we're not surprised at Micron managing to scoop the top talent. The company is in a great shape, and regardless who wins in the numerous computing wars (Storage, Mobile, Desktop, Server), chances are they will need the memory from Micron. The company is working on management restructuring and preparing the business units for the arrival of new memory standards, such as LPDDR3, DDR4, Hybrid Memory Cube and ReRAM.
