It seems, Intel gets pretty aggressive with a set of drives (or should I say "Odyssey") for the team of visual technologies. After poaching the head Technologies Group Radeon Raja Koduri, Intel, it seems to "persuade" the Petersen, One of the most famous (former) faces in the NVIDIA, to go to the other side. He worked as director of technical marketing there since 2005.
Especially popular with journalists and enthusiasts for his calm temperament and his departure from NVIDIA was not quite expected. For NVIDIA, he worked at IBM and Motorola as a designer on the PowerPC CPU commands, as well as Director of Engineering at Broadcom for one of its built-in four & # 39; core chips.
Today was my last day as an employee of NVIDIA. I will miss him. They carried me through difficult times, and I am eternally grateful.

Meanwhile Petersen was the guy who cleaned up any mess, the marketing team at NVIDIA made from Maxwell-based GTX 970 fiasco in asynchronous computing drama, which was on the green team when DirectX12 was first implemented in AOTŠ. He was also the guy who usually participate in product predapuske press calls and answered numerous after the launch of criticisms.
Before Koduri and Petersen, Intel is also brought a bunch of other veterans on board its discrete Xe GPU development team. These include former Sr. director of global product marketing at AMD, Chris Hook, Jim Keller and Darren McPhee, both of which are playing a leading role in AMD back in the day.
As HotHardware points to it, it has not been made official, but as long as it is quite certain that Tom Petersen will be joining Technologies Team Intel, Visual Xe bring chips to the end.
