Word has reached KitGuru that Manju Hegde, nVidia’s VP for CUDA and PhysX, is moving to AMD. What can we infer from the situation, when Vidia’s own VPs seem to believe that Fusion is the Future?
The former professor of electrical engineering for Washington and Louisiana State Universities, founded Ageia in 2002 and has beed as responsible as anyone for putting physics and GPGPU centre stage in the evolving graphics market.
As nVidia confirms, Hegde has been on a mission to improve game play and Jen Hsun Huang was so impressed with the physics guru’s talents that, after buying Ageia out, Hegde was given a critical role in leading the development and deployment not only of PhysX, but also CUDA.
