AMD Executive Bob Feldstein Leaves Company, Joins NVIDIA
Bob Feldstein, AMD's corporate Vice President of Business Development and Boston Design Center lead, has left the company. You may be asking why that's important, well it just so happens he is the man who helped put AMD hardware into all of the next generation gaming consoles. Essentially his work has been instrumental in AMD winning big contracts against NVIDIA, as well as helping grow AMD into new markets and opportunities. The next question is where will Bob Feldstein go from here? The answer is simple: NVIDIA. Feldstein will be joining NVIDIA as their Vice President of Technology Licensing. While it is unknown how his position in NVIDIA will play out in the future, the man behind the Xbox 360's Xenos GPU and Wii's Hollywood GPU as former ATi Vice President of Engineering may give us some idea. Feldstein not only has the ability to make deals and get contracts, he has an understanding of the hardware and its uses which should make him a valuable asset to NVIDIA in the future. How this will affect AMD remains to be seen, however at this time Bob Feldstein is a worrying addition to a growing list of executives to have left the company.
Bob Feldstein, who joined AMD when the company acquired graphics-chip maker ATI in 2006, has taken on the role of vice president of technology licensing at Nvidia. He most recently served as AMD's corporate vice president of business development and also led the company's Boston Design Center, which focuses on design engineering for AMD's various chips.
