AMD has confirmed that Henri Richard, head of its sales and marketing, will step down from his post in September.
However the company has denied that he was pushed to leave as thecompany is desperate to improve its market share with the release of its Barcelona chip.
In the press release, Richard simply says that after 20 years in the PC industry and five at AMD, he has decided to move to a different business segment. He didn't say where or why this sudden conversion had happened. AMD said the move was "completely amicable" but for some reason hadforgotten to announce it itself.
The news was first reported by Hexus.net and confirmed by our friends at The inquirer here.
