Apple man relocates to AMD – confirmed

Our old friend  Raja Koduri, who was poached by Apple four years ago to head up its graphic stuff, has been re-poached by AMD, it has been confirmed.

The story, first revealed on Cnet, has been confirmed by highly placed sources at AMD, we can reveal tonight.

Koduri was an ATI man and a high flyer at the company until Apple approached him with an offer he couldn’t refuse.

We met him last at AMD’s Sunnyvale offices where he waxed lyrical about Feng Shui in Silicon Valley.

Koduri, a highly affable chap, will bring much needed expertise back into the AMD fold. We look forward to making his acquaintance again on the right side of the Feng Shui tracks. We reported on Koduri’s departure here and here.
