Globalfoundries announced a major management reshuffle late Thursday, appointing a new CEO and COO.

Seems like every year GLO-FO gets farther and farther away from AMD. I'm not sure I like that. :sigh:

oh well, you cant help much. I had the feeling that they would become an independent foundry when they did the the spin-off thing. AMD didnt have much of a choice though. They had to cut the losses somehow. Too bad :sad:

The Arabian is owning Global Foundries. With an overwhelming > 80% of shares, the westerners has no say at all. The reshuffle seems more political than technical to me (so are the departure of pioneer guys).
