Leaving AMD

Dave Orton, former CEO of ATI, resigns

July 10, 2007 - Dave Orton, former president and chief executive officer of ATI Technologies, has resigned as executive vice president of AMD's Visual Media Business, effective the end of this month.

Adrian Hartog, senior vice president and general manager Consumer Electronics Group, and Rick Bergman, senior vice president and general manager Graphics Products Group, will now report directly into the Office of the CEO.

Troubles

AMD acquired ATI for $5.5 billion in October 2006. According to analysts, integration of the two companies has gone poorly. Furthermore, both processor and GPU group currently have troubles with the performance of their products and the execution of their roadmaps.
