After 20 years in PC industry and five in AMD,Henri Richard has decided to step down as AMD’s Sales and Marketing chief and move on to a new position. Richard’s exit might have caught AMD at a wrong foot, as the company is already dealing with lot of problems at hand. Richard is the next to quit after Dave Orton who was incharge of Graphic business at AMD. A representative of AMD has said that Henri Richard has fulfilled his job to make AMD as a new global sales and marketing organisation. AMD prepares to launch Barcelona its quad core server processor, which is already facing lot of hurdles in its release.
So far the going has been tough for AMD due to the stiff competetion with Intel. Guess we need to see the performance of AMD after the release of Barcelona in September.
