Default AMD's Project WIN Strategy Revealed... Sort of

http://vr-zone.com/articles/amd-s-pr...of/13938.html#

Rory Read fired 1400 employees the whole PR & Media team, two third of marketing team, majority of them are more GPU engineers than CPU engineers. layoff alots of employees from GPU division at former ATI HQ Markham, AMD HQ Sunnyvale, closed Santa Clara office and also closed Austin campus where Bulldozer and Fusion were developed there. It seemed he is moved all GPU engineers from Markham to Sunnyvale as GPU center while Markham is became chipset center.

It does not looked so good for AMD GPU fanboys that Rory fired alots of GPU engineers, I wonder how this will affect Catalyst drivers? It would be far less reliable next year then before. Also would future Radeon GPU developements met the same fate as Bulldozer?

I wonder where the new CPU center will be when Austin CPU center closed by end Q1 2012 and what upcoming chip GPU or CPU Rory decided to cancelled?
