The essential guide to IT transformation

A fabless semiconductor firm partly funded by Intel Capital has appointed Atiq Raza, who masterminded AMD's introduction of the Athlon chip, to its board of directors. Mellanox will design interoperable silicon in conjunction with the trade association Infiniband, and has raised funding of over $25 million in its second round of financing. Some of the funding for the technology comes from Intel and some from Atiq Raza Venture Management. Before Raza worked for AMD, he helped set up Nexgen, which was subsequently bought by AMD. Before he worked for AMD, he worked for Intel. He left AMD last summer, despite being tipped for the top job when CEO Jerry Sanders decides to retire. So what goes round seems to come round, unless this is a different Atiq Raza. And we don't think it is. The Infiniband trade association is working on specs for future IO technology, and was formed after a number of major industry players, including Intel, Compaq, Hewlett-Packard and IBM, swallowed their differences and decided to band together. ®
