昨天AMD刚宣布与Intel合作的大新闻，今天另一则令人措手不及的消息又从AMD传出。AMD RTG（Radeon Technologies Group）领导者，SVP兼首席架构师的Raja Koduri宣布辞职，明天生效。
To my AMD family,
Forty is a significant number in history. It is a number representing transition, testing and change. I have just spent forty days away from the office going through such a transition. It was an important time with my family, and it also offered me a rare space for reflection. During this time I have come to the extremely difficult conclusion that it is time for me to leave RTG and AMD.
I have no question in my mind that RTG, and AMD, are marching firmly in the right direction as high-performance computing becomes ever-more-important in every aspect of our lives. I believe wholeheartedly in what we are doing with Vega, Navi and beyond, and I am incredibly proud of how far we have come and where we are going. The whole industry has stood up and taken notice of what we are doing. 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.
I want to thank Lisa and the AET for enabling me to pursue my passion during the last four years at AMD, and especially the last two years with RTG. Lisa has my utmost respect for exhibiting the courage to enable me with RTG, for believing in me and for going out of her way to support me. I would also like to call out Mark Papermaster who brought me into AMD, for his huge passion for technology and for his relentless support through many difficult phases. And of course, I want to thank each and every one of my direct staff and my indirect staff who have worked so hard with me to build what we have now got. I am very proud of the strong leaders we have and I’m fully confident that they can execute on the compelling roadmap ahead.
【感谢Lisa和AET在这4年里让自己追求自己的激情，特别是在RTG的后两年。Lisa Su让Raja带领RTG，信任他，并以自己的方式支持他，Raja对她很敬重。还有把Raja带回AMD的Mark Papermaster，也给了他很大支持。以及对每个员工的付出表示感谢。相信领导人能把路线图执行下去。】
I will continue to be an ardent fan and user of AMD technologies for both personal and professional use.
As I mentioned, leaving AMD and RTG has been an extremely difficult decision for me. But I felt it is the right one for me personally at this point. Time will tell. I will be following with great interest the progress you will make over the next several years.
【离开AMD和RTG是个艰难的决定，但个人认为当前是最好的选择。Time will tell.】
On a final note, I have asked a lot of you in the last two years. You’ve always delivered. You’ve made me successful both personally and professionally, for which I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I have these final requests from you as I leave:
. Stay focused on the roadmap!【专注于路线图】
. Deliver on your commitments!【兑现承诺】
. Continue the culture of Passion, Persistence and Play!【继续Passion, Persistence and Play的企业文化】
. Make AMD proud!【让AMD为之骄傲】
. Make me proud!【让我为之骄傲】
Earlier today, we announced two unrelated updates for our Radeon Technologies Group: 1) Raja Koduri has decided to leave AMD and 2) we are taking the next steps in our work to strengthen RTG by further focusing the organization on key growth areas.
I wanted to also make sure you understood these updates do not impact our plans or the strategic direction we are driving our graphics business. We appreciate the contributions Raja has made helping establish our dedicated graphics focus and strong team that is capable of accomplishing the ambitious goals we have set for this part of our business. Also want to make sure it is clear that there are no changes to our public product or technology graphics roadmaps, and we remain on track to deliver on our commitments in 2018 and beyond. Lisa will continue to lead RTG on an interim basis while we complete our search for a new leader.
We have made significant progress across AMD these past two years delivering the first wave of our high-performance products, best exemplified by our improved financial performance and year-over-year market share gains across all of our client, graphics and server products. Today’s changes are designed to allow us to better take advantage of the significant growth opportunities in front of us.
至于AMD和RTG的未来，自从Raja休假开始起，CEO Lisa Su就一直在管理RTG。AMD也确认不会改变计划，在找到新领袖前Lisa Su会继续负责RTG。同时AMD官方也称，将加大对游戏和服务器GPU业务的投入。在这些领域，Vega只是开始，但更多的资源会带来更好的回报。
