I don't really know about this. It seems like they grabbed the right person but for the wrong job. They need people that are in the x86 business. That's where their company is going down-hill in. Their portable/ultra portable market is fine.

Yeah, today it is. When it first introduced in 2001 it changed the portable music player.

The strong ones are still, probably, working there...

The bad ones are changing companies all the time, this one looks really like one of those "bad apples".

Didn't say that. I specifically said HARDWARE as the articles states.

IMHO, the future of AMD rests on thier ability to improve fusion. They will never be able to catch up with intel unless intel screws up badly. They have lead in fusion and they have to aggressively try to build on that.

And again, this is the only market AMD is falling behind in.

They need people in the x86 world, not everywhere else.

But non the less, lets see how this folds out.
