We’ve just received word from AMD that Eric Demers, the company's former corporate vice president and CTO of its graphics business unit, has decided leave his post to pursue other opportunities.
AMD CTO Mark Papermaster, who has bounced from IBM to Apple to AMD, assumes interim responsibility for the graphics business unit role until a replacement is found.
"AMD remains fully committed to our critical graphics IP development and discrete GPU products. We have a tremendous depth of talent in our organization, a game plan that is resonating with our customers and our team, and we are continuing to bring graphics-performance-leading products to market. We will attract the right technology leader for this role," AMD said in a statement. "We thank Eric for his contributions to the business and wish him well in his future endeavors."
