Wccftech published a story this morning claiming that Dr. Lisa Su was planning to leave AMD for a position at IBM, but it has turned out to be a complete work of fiction. Su took to Twitter shortly after the rumors surfaced and said there was “zero truth” to them, confirming her allegiance to AMD.
Just for the record, zero truth to this rumor. I love @amd and the best is yet to come!— Lisa Su (@LisaSu) August 6, 2019
The article claimed that Su would be exiting the company in the fall for the “#2 position” at IBM. Ex-Synaptics CEO Rick Bergman, who was recently hired by AMD to lead its PC and Semi-Custom business, was being tapped as her successor.
Lisa Su is planning to launch AMD’s Rome CPUs tomorrow and from everything we have heard so far, it is going to be a resounding success. Leaving the company in a technically and financially sound condition means that her successor should have a fairly easy job until Intel rolls out its response to AMD’s Zen parts.
