KitGuru website has brought us news that Manju Hedge, former CUDA and PhysX Solutions Vice President (previously – CEO and co-founder of Ageia) has left NVIDIA to join AMD.
Our own sources at NVIDIA are indicating – this information is truthful.
However, according to our data, Manju departure won’t affect PhysX (he hasn’t been working on PhysX for over a year) or CUDA development process in NVIDIA, and his new roll in AMD won’t be connected to game physics related projects (instead, Manju is going to be involved in ISV recruitment).
Update: Pursuant to latest press-release, Manju Hedge will lead AMD Fusion Experience Program.
Update #2: from X-bit Labs article
In particular, [Manju Hedge] will manage the developer relations teams that help independent software developers (ISVs) to implement program code optimized for heterogeneous multi-core microprocessors.
We want to thanks Manju Hedge for awesome work on PhysX front and wish him best of luck with this new assignment !
