When a graphics chip company exec changes jobs, it’s not usually a big news item. But Bob Feldstein’s move from Advanced Micro Devices to rival Nvidia is likely to set tongues wagging about the next-generation game console competition.
The Wall Street Journal reported that Feldstein left his job as vice president of strategic development at AMD on July 13 and reported for duty at Nvidia on July 16. Feldstein was critical to the design and production of AMD’s last generation of console graphics chips. He helped create the Xbox 360 graphics processing unit (GPU) and also worked with Nintendo on its Wii GPU.
