    Default AMD Looks To Ramp Up Its Linux Engineer Count

    Phoronix: AMD Looks To Ramp Up Its Linux Engineer Count

    NVIDIA isn't the only one looking to expand its Linux team, but AMD is now in a mad dash to dramatically ramp up its engineering teams. AMD has been looking to hire at least another open-source developer in recent months to work on its graphics stack, but Advanced Micro Devices has now announced they're looking to hire over one thousand "tech professionals" where the software engineers are skilled in Linux and open-source development...

    Default Awesome!

    I am not sure whether any of our AMD friends in the forum can give us more details, but this is certainly awesome. My feeling is that they want to make sure they can be a strong player in the cloud, where Linux is a driving force in the backend. I am not sure how much of this will leak into end user stuff. It's still pretty cool.

    thumbs up to AMD!
    I'm definitely considering converting when I upgrade my system.
    NVIDIA has worked well, but it seems AMD is stepping up.
