Hook was the former Radeon marketing boss and will be leading marketing for visual technologies and dGFX (think graphics cards) at Intel. Hook will become their first graphics card marketer, where he'll form a strategy for Intel to use to fight AMD and NVIDIA in the graphics card market in the coming years.

Intel is forming quite the ex-AMD dream team for its CPU and GPU divisions, with both Raja and Hook quite the duo in the not-so-long-lived RTG team. AMD has been morphing very silently into a semi-custom company, with a bunch of high level executives exiting the company over the last few months, bleeding talent out into Intel, and other companies.

My industry sources told me many weeks ago now that Raja was building a "kick ass team" that wants to take "big bold wins, think big, courageous" and drive them to be putting in 100%. Raja wants to bring people to win with him at Intel, and Hook joining the fray is only going to highlight that.

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.
