I normally side with the employee, but in this case, their actions definately indicate a high level of premeditated criminal activity. If it were just taking information that you personnally developed, I could see some leeway, but this is an excessive act. I think those involved at AMD and the people at NVIDIA that aided and abetted this IP theft should be punished. Just my opinion.
