Earlier today a few websites posted a report that AMD's CEO Dirk Meyer will be leaving the company. As for this moment, we have failed to get a confirmation or denial from AMD for this report. AMD has confirmed this report and appointed Thomas Seifert as interim CEO.

Dirk Meyer joined AMD in 1995 and made his mark as part of the design team responsible for the original AMD Athlon processor, a breakthrough product for AMD and the industry’s first processor to break the 1GHz barrier.

From 2001 to 2006, Meyer led the company's microprocessor business, overseeing related R&D, manufacturing, operations, and marketing. His leadership skills during these five years resulted in a doubling of revenue for the microprocessor business and a substantial expansion of AMD's global profile. In 2006, Meyer was appointed president and COO, and in 2007, he was elected to AMD's board of directors. In 2008, Meyer was appointed chief executive officer.

Prior to AMD, Meyer spent nearly a decade at Digital Equipment Corporation, where he was co-architect of the Alpha 21064 and 21264 microprocessors.

As one of the world's leading microprocessor design innovators, Meyer was presented with the prestigious Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Maurice Wilkes Award at the 2003 International Symposium on Computer Architecture (ISCA). Meyer is a named inventor on 47 patents and patent applications.

Meyer graduated from the University of Illinois, where he received a bachelor's degree in computer engineering. He was recognized as a Distinguished Alumni by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2009. He also received a master's degree in business administration from Boston University.

...and somehow I don't miss your posts squall and the crap you are spoiling over Red's and always hailing to the Greens.

On the side note - Imho Dirk was a good CEO... AMD was sailing in the good directions under his managment...

Neither would you, and I would recommend the ban again, you are just so extremist that your views are known before you post. It is so predictable that any AMD/ATi threads, you will jump in and post some negative shit that barely stands up to ANY cross examination. Did someone kill your parents whilst wearing a red t-shirt or something, pervert.
