Top Intel architect flees coop for AMD

Once more into the breach, dear friends
Sun Jul 10 2005, 13:01
SOURCES CLAIMED that top architect Scott Breach, who was a leader of the team on the Alpha EV7, is leaving Intel to take a job with the competition.

Breach, who has a home page that shows he seems to be a cool dude indeed, and is highly regarded by chip architects worldwide, recently worked on the system interface of Tukwila the Old and Tukwila the New.

INQ readers will recall that Intel has started to re-use code names with Nehalem getting a fresh leash of life as well as Tukwila, of course.

Many of the people who graduated from the University of Wisconsin are now top boffins. It is a great loss for Intel, which inherited him from the Alpha team.

According to his home page, his thesis work was on the design and evaluation of a multiscalar processor.

He lists his research interests as computer architecture, multiscalar projects, and beer. There are some great places to drink beer in Austin. Or so we've been told. µ
