puzzled! apple has done nothing distinguished in chip engineering - their main strengths are cosmetic design and supply-chain management. apple's SoC is mundane...

Nothing to do with Opteron? Anand would beg to differ: http://www.anandtech.com/show/6129/apple-a4a5-designer-k8-lead-architect-jim-keller-returns-to-amd

My mistake. I had Keller mixed up with someone else.

Untrue! He had *nothing* to do with Opteron. He has been around succesful designs and is certainly knowledgeable on them but he has not been the chief architect for any of the shipping Apple or AMD parts.

Keller was one of the engineers behind Opteron, the generation that really made an innovative leap over Intel by integrating the memory controller and a coherent bus (HyperTransport) on a server chip. AMD needs some of that leap ahead product innovation today. It now has all the pieces in place with leading graphics cores, multiple x86 cores, an ARM partnership--and now a returning veteran microprocessor designer.

I hope so. Mobile chips will be the market over time.

It all depends how that is done but it probably wouldn't go down very well with Apple.

Maybe he can build a good team by pulling more engineers from Apple.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
