Rogers has joined NVIDIA, where he takes the throne of the Chief Software Architect of Compute Server. He had been a Corporate Fellow of System Architecture and Performance at AMD before he jumped ship. Rogers' updated LinkedIn profile also shows that he is now with Team Green. For AMD, this isn't the first veteran to leave the company in recent months, with its CPU architect Jim Keller leaving the company last month.

Keller was responsible for its future Zen architecture, which will be unveiled next year.

Anthony joined the TweakTown team in 2010 and has since reviewed 100s of graphics cards. Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games built around consoles. FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU tech is unwavering.
