Group restructuring: Intel splits graphics group, Arc continues

from Rhonda Bachman
Intel recently announced it would split its AXG graphics group to address the consumer and data center markets separately. Raja Koduri, currently Executive Vice President of AXG Group, will return to his previous role as Intel Chief Architect. However, this conversion should not have any impact on Intel Arc.

Intel recently made some changes to its Accelerated Computing Systems and Graphics (AXG) business unit. The unit has been split into two separate groups for consumers and data centers. However, this should not have any impact on the Intel Arc graphics card series. Intel still wants to stick with the second generation Battlemage GPUs as well as the third generation Celestial GPUs. The recently launched Alchemist series will also continue to be supported.

Koduri is back as Intel Chief Architect

“Discrete graphics and accelerated computing are key growth drivers for Intel. With our flagship products now in production, we are evolving our structure to accelerate and scale their impact and drive go-to-market strategies with a unified voice to customers.” Intel in its announcement. “This includes integrating our consumer graphics teams into our client computing group and our accelerated computing teams into our datacenter and AI group. Additionally, Raja Koduri will return to the role of Intel Chief Architect, to focus on our growing efforts in the areas of CPU, GPU and AI and to accelerate the high-priority technical programs.”

Raja Koduri only took over the position as head of AXG last year. Now he appears to be returning to the post he held at Intel in 2017 after a five-year stint at AMD. Koduri is now said to be working on high-performance technical programs, driving the integration of GPU, CPU and AI architectures.

Meanwhile, the Arc Graphics division, which is of particular interest to gamers and other consumers, will be attached to the Client Computing Group, led by Lisa Pearce. Pearce is best known for her work leading the GPU team’s software and driver departments.
