    You might be thinking of Raja as the guy who went straight from AMD to Intel. The circumstances of his departure from AMD were never entirely clear. IMO, the only thing that saved Vega from being a flop was the crypto boom. Even Polaris wasn't very competitive, except for its price. In terms of perf/W and presumably profit margins, Nvidia's Pascal ran circles around it (most GTX 1060's used a 200 mm^2 die @ 16 nm, whereas RX 570 and 580 used a 232 mm^2 die @ 14 nm). With a track record like that, I could imagine Raja's departure might've been a "mutual decision".
    Well, since new architectures take years to develop and put into the shelves, is difficult to estimate exactly what cards he was responsible for. Personally I think the first ones were models launched 2 years after he joined AMD. Since they launched a couple of under-performing models while he was there, he ended taking the blame for other people's mistakes.

    Is like what Jim Keller said in his recent interview: success has many names. Failure only has one.

      He was "vice president in Visual Computing" from 2013 and then given the title "senior vice president and chief architect" in 2015. So, Vega should be all him, if not also Polaris. He probably also had a big hand in RDNA, to be fair.

      First of all, I never said he was the only one deserving blame, or even the main one. As an outsider, I just look at the timing and mystery around his departure and speculate as I'm free to do. My speculation about such things is worth little more than the bits it's written in.
