Jim Keller To Join Samsung As Chief Architect Claims Source

According to the rumor mill, Jim Keller has reportedly joined Samsung as chief architect after leaving AMD just over a month ago. I'm not sure what kind of arrangement Mr. Keller had with AMD, or if he had a non-compete clause, but this seems awful soon for him to be joining another company.

Keller will be joining Samsung’s R&D centers in Austin, Texas as chief architect and will undoubtedly help the company further improve its mobile hardware offerings. After all, even though Samsung managed to gain quite a lead for itself with the debut of the 14nm FinFET for mobile processors, its competitors including TSMC are eager to catch up and are quickly developing their responses as well.
