Quite a lot of talent jumped ship from AMD to Intel, and the other way around. Notable examples include Raja Koduri and Jim Keller*, but there are many more. WCCF Tech takes a closer look in a new article that zooms in on the raging talent war.
Talent is one of the most precious commodities in the silicon industry and last week’s headlines saw some executives move between Intel and AMD. The chip triumvirate pay handsomely to retain key engineers and executives so usually there is always an interesting story behind a big move. I talked to some sources intimately familiar with the matter and realized there was a lot more to the talent war that had been hush-hush so far.
