Another AMD suit legs it

Larry Hollatz, AMD's group vice president of the Computation Products Group, has quit Chimpzilla to 'pursue other interests'. Hector Ruiz, AMD president and chief operating officer, will stand in as acting group vice president for the business unit which produces PC processors.

"Following Intel’s announcement of their recall and suspension of shipments of their 1.13-gigahertz processors earlier this week, AMD stands alone as the only supplier of PC processors with clock speeds above 1 gigahertz," gloated Ruiz.

He added that AMD remained on target to double shipments of Athlon and Duron processors to 3.6 million units in the current quarter and to again double unit shipments to 7.2 million units in Q4.

Despite Chimpzilla's recent string of victories over Intel, the steady stream of senior suits jumping ship must give cause for concern. In recent months Atiq Raza, Dana Krelle, Vin Dham and now Hollatz have headed for pastures new.

Ruiz is justly famed as the man behind Motorola's wacky Digital DNA scam, sorry, scheme. ®
