AMD Radeon Technology Group, Senior VP and General Manager, Mike Rayfield to Resign
AMD’s Radeon Technology Team (RTG) is still in a dispute of flux, with every other executive leaving the corporate. This time, RTG General Supervisor and Senior Vice President, Mike Rayfield (pictured on the left below) will doubtless be resigning by year’s finish, marking the 2nd time in a calendar year the group has been devoid of a proper chief. Rayfield previously worked for NVIDIA as the General Supervisor of their Tegra enterprise unit, and became Vice President and General Supervisor of Micron’s cell storage enterprise unit earlier than that. Having served in all these roles for reasonably a while, it is miles a shrimp of a surprise to belief him leaving AMD so rapidly, having simplest impartial right joined the corporate lend a hand in February 2018. With that acknowledged, AMD has acknowledged the explanation for this departure is so that he can “spend more time with his family and pursue his non-public passions”.
David Wang (convey on the honest below), the recent Senior Vice President of Engineering at RTG, will doubtless be his meantime successor. He already has a storied history at AMD, having worked on ATI/AMD graphics cards as a GPU engineer from the R300 to GCN 1.zero in a timeframe ranging from the years 2000 to 2012. Below AMD’s dual management mannequin which became performed after Raja Koduri’s resignation, each Wang and Rayfield occupy worked together leading the RTG group. Due to this, the transition of responsibilities must be pretty mushy even supposing Wang’s feature is simplest temporary, and this might well occasionally be exciting to belief whom AMD picks as Rayfield’s long-timeframe successor.
