AMD Fellow Chuck Moore dies of Pancreatic Cancer
Chuck Moore, chief engineer of AMD's Bulldozer architecture, has passed away after battling Pancreatic Cancer, it was announced today. I met him briefly last year at AMD's inaugural Fusion Developer Summit, where he spoke with assembled world press about AMD Fusion system Architecture.

Chuck achieved a long and distinguished career not only as a technology innovator and visionary, but also as a mentor and leader. He spent a large part of his career working at IBM on computer chips based on the POWER architecture. During this time Chuck completed a Master's degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Texas (UT) at Austin. He continued at IBM as Chief Engineer and project co-lead for the PowerPC 601 Microprocessor, and eventually led the POWER4 Chip Architecture project. He was also elected to the IBM Academy of Technology and was named an IBM Master Inventor.
His obituary is posted here.
