Apple has made another high profile hire as the company convinced John Bruno to move from Canada to California.
Until recently, Bruno was system architect at AMD and responsible for "all aspects of the definition and delivery of the 2012 Comal platform that includes the Trinity Fusion APU," according to his LinkedIn profile.
The profile reveals that he joined Apple as a system architect, but there is no further information about his new responsibilities. His expertise is in the integration of the Trinity APU and covers a range of graphics chipset projects at AMD, including the 690G, 780G and 880G. According to Slashgear, Bruno was part of AMD's 10 percent job cut last November, that led some of them to take on SoC design roles at companies such as Samsung.
The Internet rumor mill is full of ideas what Bruno could be doing at Apple. One example could be that Apple would leverage him on the road to ditch Intel processors in its notebook and/or desktop computers. Bruno did not reply to our request for comment on his new job.
