MSN Money via the Inquirer: Apple has hired graphics wizard Bob Drebin away from AMD’s graphics group. Drebin was formerly the CTO of AMD’s graphics division. Linkedin has him listed as a “senior director”, but doesn’t specify anything further. Drebin has made his mark at several big graphics companies throughout the past twenty years. He was formerly chief engineer at Silicon Graphics during the mid-nineties and an early employee of Pixar.
Does this mean Apple is going after a piece of the graphics market with both software [OpenCL] and hardware? Too early to tell.
