sources are reporting that AMD has recruited Folding@Home
GPGPU client developer, Mike Houston. Houston, while best known in the “Folding” community as the developer of the GPGPU client, as one of his many research projects while at Stanford University.
It is not known what kind of specific role Houston would have at AMD/ATI, but his site on the Stanford Intranet indicates that he has take a position at AMD and that he will be working on architecture design. So, we guess we can slide this rumor over into the “confirmed” category.
