Default AMD CEO Steps Down

I say it's about time. He brought Motorola down drain and he's been doing it to AMD. He doesn't deserve to be CEO of the company and good riddance.

He ruined AMD. Hopefully the new CEO can get things back on track.

I agree. As much as I like Intel, I really want to see AMD get back on their feet and push out something good.

seroiusly, this man single handedly ruined AMD (not really single handedly at all, but still, he was in power)

i thought AMD was looking up (ATI actually)- i'd easily take an hd4870 over a 9800GTX (oh wait, that card's not good enough for the Radeon ) or GTX260 anyday

and btw, i had the WSOD for 8 hours today, couldn't access the forum until now.

They recently released some pretty impressive integrated graphics processors for their mobile line.

He did the same back when he was CEO of Motorola. Now look at Motorola after he left.
