In Retrospect, his intro speech during the Vega launch event kinda gave you that feeling, he sure has worked his ass off all these past years, maybe it's a good time to take a big break from everything and focus on spending time with his family. I guess, it has a name, it's called "research fatigue", timelines and schedules are pretty tight and when you fail to deliver to the exact specs it's nerve racking... At the Faculty we have 5-6 professors that had a huge career in companies like IBM, Microsoft, HP even the Max Planck Institute project leaders and such and they've all quit it for the more laid back professors life and family time...

It's not like Raja will have a hard time being accepted to a job....

Pretty sad to hear. He really put them in order and got everything on track.
I figured there stock would drop but so far it's no change.

TBH this doesn't surprise me when I first heard he was taking a break I really thought it meant he was leaving

AMD is the only thing stopping Nvidia from charging £699 for a 1070 type card, And we all know they would if they could get away with it, We all better hope AMD's GPU arm stays afloat, Especially if you're an Nvidia customer.

That could make sense if the rumour is true with the up and coming joint venture between Intel and AMD

Yeah, at every major press event he hosted he always talked about his family and being away from them a lot. That would get to a guy after a while.

Hard to know if there is any truth to that. AMD is sure to have a non-compete clause in his severance package. That being said, California, where Intel is based, dies not support anti-compete clauses, so who knows.

There is also the fact that the said "As I think about how computing will evolve, I feel more and more that I want to pursue my passion beyond hardware and explore driving broader solutions."

"Beyond Hardware" does not suggest that he plans on moving to another hardware company.

Got any source to back that up? As WYP said, I can guarantee AMD would have a non-competing clause in his contract

Glad to see someone else sees the bigger picture. I'm sad for Raja but at the same time, this could be a breath of fresh air that helps AMD after Navi. Which is what I'm praying for, they've really shook up the CPU market, just need the same for the GPU market.
