Late last week the sudden departure of AMD's CPU architect veteran puzzled computer enthusiasts but there's some optimism coming out of AMD. MyStatesman talked to Suzanne Plummer, another chip engineer at the help of the Zen team, and go tot hear that Zen is coming along nicely:
Suzanne Plummer, the veteran Austin chip engineer who heads the Zen team, exudes confidence about the project.

“It is the first time in a very long time that we engineers have been given the total freedom to build a processor from scratch and do the best we can do,” Plummer said. “It is a multi-year project with a really large team. It’s like a marathon effort with some sprints in the middle. The team is working very hard, but they can see the finish line. I guarantee that it will deliver a huge improvement in performance and (low) power consumption over the previous generation.”

Plummer has worked at AMD since 2002, when it acquired the startup she was working for, Alchemy Semiconductor.
