Deepak Patil will substitute Raja Koduri because the CVP and GM of the restructured Accelerated Computing Programs and Graphics (AXG) group. Jeff McVeigh served because the interim chief for AXG after Koduri departed to move an AI gaming software program start-up.
Koduri, who beforehand led AMD’s Radeon Applied sciences Group, arrived at Intel in 2017. Throughout his time at Intel, Koduri oversaw the chipmaker’s GPU and accelerator tasks, together with Intel Xe, Ponte Vecchio, and Arc Alchemist. As well as, he was the Government Vice President of the AXG group till a current reorganization put him again into the place of Intel Chief Architect. McVeigh, the CVP and GM of the Tremendous Compute Group (SCG), saved the AXG seat heat whereas Intel looked for an appropriate substitute for Koduri.
“Intel will ship aggressive accelerated computing merchandise and construct scalable methods with easy-to-program software program on a predictable cadence. Deepak Patil will function the CVP and Normal Supervisor of the Accelerated Computing Programs and Graphics (AXG) group.
Deepak lately held the place of DCAI Chief Know-how and Technique Officer. Having held senior engineering management positions throughout the high-tech business, together with being a founding member of Microsoft Azure and main Dell’s APEX as-a-service enterprise, he understands the necessary function that software program and open ecosystems play in enabling software builders and repair suppliers to convey revolutionary options to market, at scale. His wealthy methods, software program and companies expertise will construct on the deep silicon and graphics structure and engineering experience in AXG, to speed up the expansion of Intel’s place within the AI, HPC and consumer graphics markets.
Jeff McVeigh will return to main the Tremendous Compute Group whereas additionally serving to Deepak ramp in his new function.”
Patil labored for Microsoft for over 15 years and was one of many founding members of Microsoft Azure. He additionally has plenty of engineering management roles underneath his belt: earlier than Intel, he was the SVP of Dell’s Cloud Platforms and Options Group. Together with his ample expertise in cloud computing, it is easy to see why Intel employed Patil because the Chief Know-how and Technique Officer of the Datacenter and AI Group (DCAI).
AXG is a brutal present to run. Intel constituted the group in 2021, and AXG looks like a magnet for the dangerous information. Keep in mind the Ponte Vecchio delays? Intel has killed off many non-core companies underneath CEO Pat Gelsinger’s route, together with Optane, SSDs, 5G modems, and — most lately — prebuilt servers. So it is type of a marvel that AXG continues to breathe. The group has solely fallen to a reorganization. It will likely be fascinating to see whether or not Patil can flip the group round as CVP and GM of AXG.
