    AnandTech is reporting Eric Demers is leaving AMD. This apparently was backed up with an official statement from AMD. Here is what they both had to say,

    Humm, sound like he's walking on his own accord, or that he feels others are getting up the ladder and he's passed over. This loss might not be good… I think Eric Demers had been vital to AMD and transitioning from ATI, while bringing pressure on Nvidia since the G92 era.

    Maybe Bob Dreblin got him a job at Apple....I hear they needed to replace that Papermaster guy...I wonder where he went.

    Maybe Richard Huddy got him a job at Intel. I hear they needed a guy to replace that Naik guy...I wonder where he went.

    Who is even left to name-drop these days in the engineering/CTO/VP dept?

    Manju Hegde?

    I bet if he wanted he could just go back where he came from. They'd prolly still take him.

    Papermaster again making the news...I think we all know what will happen next. Soon a trade dispute will break out in some backwater territory...then kids will race AG vehicles...then...Liam Nesson...Nooooo!!

    Papermaster is Palpatine, Palpatine is Papermaster! We're doomed!! Soon cloned Papermasters will own us all!! :D

    Seriously tho, shame to see a classic ATI guy leave. All the best for him and his endeavors!
