AMD has lost a few people to Intel in the last year, and now they're fighting back by securing an ex-Intel executive who served as the Vice President, Core and Visual Computing Group, Chief Engineer, VTT and Director of Hardware and Co-Director of Architecture, VPG at Intel. Martin Ashton had a huge title at AMD.

Ashton was with Intel for just 21 months, and before joining Chipzilla hs worked in the UK with Imagination Technologies. Imagination Technologies, in case you didn't know, made the PowerVR GPUs that went over to Apple, with Ashton moving to Intel before that happened. And now as Intel is slipping in more ways than one, Ashton has jumped ship to AMD.

AMD reached out to me to let me know that Martin will be joining the Radeon Technologies Group and will "drive architecture and execution of Radeon graphics IP that will extend across our discrete graphics, integrated graphics, and semi-custom products".

AMD told me: "We are very happy to bring Martin and his talent to AMD for our graphics roadmap and business. David Wang is building a great team, both from within AMD with key promotions, and with key external additions like Martin".
