You have got to be kidding. Give him a break! His image was "tarnished by what many consider less then stellar performance"!! Oh poor guy with a tarnished image. What is truely amazing is that after his equally tarnished image from his great Motorola run - - that pathetic board of directors picked him for a rerun at AMD. Why dont you check out how his pay was for this performance? Dont forget salary, bonus and stock in your calculations. Forget whether or not he was whispering to his pathetic buddies - - he should have been fired and run out of town long before his desperate GlobalFoundries move. Any company that hired him after that should have seen a massive stock selloff as smart investors should know the company is about to be run to the ground. And please --enough of the big bad Intel whine. Why dont you do some research. AMD and Intel were founded within 1 year of each other. Why do you suppose one company has so completely dominated the other? I suppose it is because Intel cheated right? You and Hector only need some big over size shoes and a big red noze that honks - - you are both bozo's.

Give this guy a break? You have to be kidding. His less than stellar performance at AMD preceded him at Motorola. I will not give this crook a pass. He should be behind bars along with the tools he was passing off info to.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
