During his 13 years at AMD, Ali Ibrahim has worked on the development of current and future generation consoles and more recently, new projects for cloud gaming, an area that is likely to be of interest to Intel as it expands the market presence of its dedicated graphics. The Blues didn’t mention what Ibrahim’s goals in the company will be, so at the moment everything is just speculation. However, it will undoubtedly be a hard blow for AMD, which continues to lose part of its team before the introduction of its new GPUs and the new consoles from Microsoft and Sony.
