AMD CTO Mark Papermaster, who has bounced from IBM to Apple to AMD, assumes interim responsibility for the graphics business unit role until a replacement is found.
"AMD remains fully committed to our critical graphics IP development and discrete GPU products. We have a tremendous depth of talent in our organization, a game plan that is resonating with our customers and our team, and we are continuing to bring graphics-performance-leading products to market. We will attract the right technology leader for this role," AMD said in a statement. "We thank Eric for his contributions to the business and wish him well in his future endeavors."
