AMD Hires Away Key Intel Developer

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 3:34 pm

Press reports indicate that Advanced Micro Devices has hired away one of the leading designers of the Itanium processor, along with eight of his colleagues, from competitor Intel. Samuel Naffziger had only been with the company for less than a year, having been hired away previously from Hewlett-Packard in 2005.

AMD confirmed the move Wednesday and said Naffziger would work on chip design as a senior fellow. However, the company would not elaborate on the work he or his counterparts would be doing.
