Ex-RTG Marketing boss in Chris Hook, Athlon and Ryzen architect Jim Keller (who is also ex-Tesla) and now ex-Intel and Larrabee CPU architecture architect Tom Forsyth has announced he's re-joining Team Blue to work with Raja on Intel's new GPU architecture.

Intel's refreshed GPU division has some serious talent and brainpower behind it now, with Forsyth's recent announcement taking place on Twitter where he said: "I start at Intel shortly as a chip architect in Raja Koduri's group. Not entirely sure what I'll be working on just yet". Gives me shivers, the excitement for Intel's mysterious GPU division is growing, and I love it.

Forsyth worked on the Larrabee CPU architecture, something that kicked off the AVX-512 instruction set, and the Xeon Phi that was designed around the GPU-style highly parallel processing for general purpose computing. He's someone that has had major influence on the industry while working at not just Intel, but Oculus, Valve, and even 3DLabs.

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.
