Thomas Seifert is the new temp CEO
Dirk Meyer has left AMD and the decision seems to be mutual. Thomas Seifert,the company's senior vice president and chief financial officer, will succeed him until AMD finds a permanent replacement.

To make things a bit more interesting, all this happens the very same day Nvidia announces a $1.5 billion cross licencing deal with Intel, its long term legal chipset settlement.
