Intel hires Rohil Verma, and reinforces its adventure in the GPU sector

The chip giant has been embarking on a very important project for some time, his return to the sector of high-performance GPUs, both for general consumption and for the professional sector. Intel has already made significant progress in this regard, but it is aware that this sector is very competitive, and it is clear about the importance of human value to continue advancing towards its goal: to become one of the most important players in this sector.

With that in mind, it’s no wonder Intel has hired Rohil Verma, one of the most important figures within AMD’s SoCs and graphics solutions division. After his signing by the chip giant, Verma becomes Lead Product Architect of GPUs for SoCsa position of great importance not only for all that it means for him as a professional in terms of challenges and responsibilities, but also for Intel in order to achieve its goals.

Keep in mind, however, that this is not Rohil Verma’s first time working at Intel. Between 1999 and 2013before his departure to AMD, this engineer worked at Intel as Chief Architect of the SoCs division. In this period, he coincided with the current CEO of the chip giant, Pat Gelsinger, and it seems that this could have positively influenced Verma’s return to the company.

The arrival of Rohil Verma at Intel is good news for both the company and investors, since we are talking about an engineer with extensive experience who can add great value to the division in which it has been framed. On the other hand, it should be noted that this movement is further confirmation that Pat Gelsinger is recovering the human and professional talent that the company had lost in recent years.

This strategy of recovering the “old team” was perfectly illustrated by Pat Gelsinger himself in a famous phrase that perfectly reveals his intentions now that he has the helm of Intel: “The brain drain has changed. Now those brains are coming back.”. We will see what achievements Rohil Verma achieves on his return to Intel, but we already anticipate that expectations are very high.
