Tesla loses Autopilot VP and chip architect Jim Keller

Intel confirms hire of former AMD CPU architect Jim Keller from Tesla Chip designer Jim Keller interviewed during his second term at AMD

Raja will be building out the IP blocks for the CPU and GPU side of things for Intel, while Keller will take those IP blocks and build chip designs out of them. It is now confirmed that Jim has quit his job at Tesla to join the biggest name in chip manufacturing - Intel. In the past, he worked for AMD on the Athlon 64, before jumping over to Apple to develop the A4 and A5 SoCs found in the iPhone 4 and 4S.

If Keller does indeed join Intel, he would be the following another (former) CEO of AMD, Raja Koduri, the chief architect of the Radeon Technology Group, who also moved to Intel and likely soon to be joined by Chris Hook, who was Senior Director of Global Product Marketing for AMD. We'll be looking forward to seeing other changes at Intel in the years to come, as work gets underway on new CPU designs, in addition to GPUs. Tesla halted the production of the Model 3 for the second time earlier this month, ostensibly because of over-reliance on automation.

"Prior to joining Tesla, Jim's core passion was microprocessor engineering and he's now joining a company where he'll be able to once again focus on this exclusively", Tesla said in a statement to Electrek.

Tesla said that Pete Bannon, who has been at the company for more than two years, no will lead Autopilot hardware.

Driver Walter Huang's passing in the crash and vehicle fire in a Tesla Inc Model X close Mountain View, California, provoked examinations by the NTSB and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Tesla is experiencing another shakeup in its Autopilot hardware leadership as vice president Jim Keller departs. "We appreciate his contributions to Tesla and wish him the best".

Tesla also doubled down on its commitment to building its own chips, saying it is "deeply committed" to doing so with plans to "dramatically increase" its investments in chip design.
