New Accelerated Computing Systems and Graphics Group

The other new business unit Intel formed as part of the restructuring is the Accelerated Computing Systems and Graphics Group, which will be led by Raja Koduri (pictured), a former AMD executive Intel hired in 2017 to design discrete GPUs to compete with Nvidia and AMD.

The new group will focus on high-performance computing and graphics, which will include integrated and discrete solutions for client, enterprise and data center customers.

Intel has been working on expanding beyond its traditional integrated graphics technologies for CPUs to include new discrete GPU solutions that includes its first discrete graphics product for laptops that launched last year, the Intel Iris Xe Max Graphics. The company has also launched a discrete GPU solution for the data center, the Intel Server GPU, and it’s planning a major assault on Nvidia’s accelerated computing prowess with Ponte Vecchio, which will power the U.S. Department Energy’s new supercomputer at Argonne National Laboratory when it launches in 2022.

Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger said in his Tuesday memo that Koduri “has shouldered several critical roles for Intel over the past few years” as the head of its Architecture, Graphics and Software group, and he will “now focus his full energy” on the Accelerated Computing Systems and Graphics Group.

The Accelerated Computing Systems and Graphics Group will consist of multiple teams, according to Gelsinger’s memo. The HPC team, which was previously under the Data Platform Group, will be led by HPC veteran Patricia Damkroger. The compute architecture team will be led by veteran architect Debbie Marr. The graphics architecture, IP, product and execution teams will be led by David Blythe, Roger Chandler, Mark Hirsch, Balaji Kanigicherla and Jeff McVeigh. Separately, graphics software leader Lisa Pearce, developer software leader Sanjiv Shah and machine learning software leader Wei Lei will lead their own teams within the group.

Gelsinger said in his memo that returning veteran engineer Glenn Hinton, chief data center CPU architect Sailesh Kottapalli and hardware engineering leader Manisha Pandya will move to Intel’s Design Engineering Group. The Design Engineering Group is led by Intel veteran engineer Sunil Shenoy, who rejoined the company in February as Gelsinger promised “key leaders” would return.
