AMD Reportedly Lost its CPU Architect Jim Keller Joins Samsung

AMD’s CPU architect Jim Keller has reportedly joined Samsung as their Chief Architect of SoC research and development, bringing his experience in creating AMD’s K7, K8, and the upcoming ARM K12 and x86 Zen CPUs as well as his experience working on Apple’s A4 and A5 SoC to the tech giant.

He will be working out of their R&D centers in Austin, Texas. Keller should further develop Samsung’s already great mobile offerings, especially since the South Korean giant is on the forefront of 14nm FinFET technology.
