The chief architect of Pentium 4 is in charge of Intel's GPU project

Last month the tech world was thrust into widespread speculation over Intel's decision to re-enter the discrete graphics market. Intel is actively recruiting employees for its new Visual Computing Group, or VCG, previously known as the "Larrabee group.”

According to Beyond3D, the Chief Architect of Intel’s VCG is Douglas M. Carmean. Carmean has been with Intel for 13 years, “working on IA-32 processors from the 80486 to the Intel Pentium 4 processor.” Intel also states that Carmean was a key architect behind the definition of the Intel Pentium 4 processor. In addition, Carmean also has experience working with ROSS Technology, Sun Microsystems, Cypress Semiconductor and Lattice Semiconductor.

Carmean has been travelling to various universities across the United States giving a presentation titled, “Future CPU Architectures -- The Shift from Traditional Models.” On the seminar information page, Intel labels Carmean as its Principal Architect with Intel's Desktop Products Group, though this information appears to be dated.

Intel's VCG website no longer claims the project is oriented for discrete GPUs, though Intel has off-the-record confirmed this fact to several publications.
