After serving in various roles over the past 21 years at AMD (and originally ATi), Phil Rogers has joined NVIDIA as Chief Software Architect of the Compute Server group. Rogers played a key role in AMD's heterogenous computing software development and was appointed to AMD Corporate Fellow in 2007.
We have confirmed this morning that Mr. Rogers is now with NVIDIA, and not in a minuscule role. His new title at NVIDIA is Chief Software Architect - Compute Server. Congratulations Mr. Rogers! While this is not on our usual radar, this is certainly a good move for NVIDIA and not such a good one for AMD. It makes us question what is going on over at AMD nowadays.
