Former ATI president and CEO resigns from AMD
AMD today announced Dave Orton, executive vice president of AMD,
. The resignation is effective in the end of July 2007. Orton was the former president and chief executive officer of ATI before the
merger with AMD
. A new executive vice president has not been appointed yet.
“It is with mixed feelings that I am leaving AMD,” Orton said. “I am very optimistic about AMD’s future. I believe strongly in the strategies that brought AMD and ATI together and the talented employees of the ‘new AMD’ who are committed to winning in the market by delivering the best possible solutions for customers.”
Orton was one of the “key drivers in the successful integration of AMD and ATI,” according to AMD President and Chief Operating Officer Dirk Meyer. “With his integration work complete and the successful launch of key graphics and chipset products earlier this year, the time was right for Dave to take his personal and professional life in a different direction,” he added.
Despite the “successful integration” of AMD and ATI, the company continues to hemorrhage cash, with
debts mounting up fast
and an estimated $1.1 billion in the bank. The company also posted a
first quarter loss
of $611 million USD.

Thats why they have been playing catch up to AMD since the K6 right?
You couldn't be more wrong.
Well since the K6 no, but since the K7 and K8 yes. And AMD can blame itself, and the huge influence of Intel upon the spin bullshitting press for not being able to dent a much much larger dent on Intel market share.

but since the K7 and K8 yes.
Incorrect. Core 2 has places Intel in the lead. Now it's AMD's turn to catch up.
