Lisa Su's reportedly leaving AMD - Update - Lisa Su Refutes IBM Rumour

- Update - AMD's CEO, Lisa Su, has responded to this rumour directly on Twitter, stating that there is "zero truth to this rumour" and that "the best is yet to come" at AMD. 


Anyone who follows AMD will know who Lisa Su is. She is the current CEO of AMD, the leader who saw the company through some of its toughest years and paved the way towards the company's newfound success. Over her time as CEO, AMD has been transformed, gaining her a position on the Fortune "World's 50 Greatest Leaders" list in 2017. 

Under Lisa Su, AMD has executed their CPU comeback with extreme precision, making the company competitive with Intel once more. Beyond that, there are some metrics where AMD is now ahead of its rival, a circumstance that would have seemed impossible when Lisa Su became CEO in 2014. 

Now, it looks like Lisa Su has plans to leave AMD behind, at least according to a report from Wccftech. While this site has a certain reputation for false rumours, their writer Usman Pirzada has a track record of breaking stories regarding executive movements within AMD. With this record in mind, his report about AMD's CEO should be taken seriously, but not be considered as truth. That said, Lisa Su's plans could change, as could the plans of the company which she intends to lead in the future. 

Rumour has it that Lisa Su wants to become CEO of IBM, and is currently eyeing up the company's #2 position. In time, she hopes to take over from current CEO and President Ginni Rometty. 

This report comes after Rick Bergman was brought into AMD as executive vice president of Computing and Graphics. Bergman is reportedly being considered as a candidate for Lisa Su's replacement, with his experience as CEO of Synaptics and work within AMD and ATI making him an excellent candidate.   
Tomorrow, Lisa Su is set to launch the company's EPYC "ROME" series of Zen 2 processors, acting as Su's crowning achievement. With ROME, AMD is now competitive within the server market, challenging Intel in terms of both performance and power efficiency. This move will secure AMD increased market share and significant growth in quarterly earnings. This move will secure Lisa Su's legacy as one of AMD's greatest CEOs.

Raja said the same, took a sabbatical and the next we heard he was at Intel.

Moral of this story? Don't trust any one.

Well she already confirmed it was a made up story so you got your wish.

So much for integrity. Literally just goes to prove that WCCFTECH is so unreliable and never worth as a news source. The fact that their integrity is so low to claim an "exclusive" article piece on a lie, just discredits anything they say from here on out.Quote

This is awful news, I remember the previous two CEO's were completely incompetent. They thought they could sit on there current CPU and GPU architectures and not put in R&D for future architectures/products the first hack jobs of theirs was the 290x which was just a bigger 7970 than the Fury X which was just an even larger 7970, They essentially handed the GPU lead to Nvidia It's hard to say if AMD will ever sit on the top of the GPU charts again. They were going the way of Konami and believed they could just create embedded devices on there current devices forever(casino machines amongst other stupidity).Quote
