It was the HP CEO yesterday, now Rick Bergman, head of AMD's Products Group has left the company. CEO Rory Read will take over in the meantime. Bergman joined AMD from ATI after the 2006 merger, where he went from Senior VP of AMD's Graphics Product Group to head of the Products Group for AMD when they combined their graphics and microprocessor businesses in May 2009.

Bergman is leaving to "pursue a new opportunity", which shows this is an actual resignation rather than "here's the door". AMD has also announced that Paul Struhsaker, who was Comcast's former Senior VP of Engineering has joined AMD's freshly formed Commercial Business Division. Struhsaker has the task to "oversee product management and roadmap planning for AMD's server, high performance computing and embedded products".
