Follow Devdiscourse, whom Microsoft has just hired is Mike Filippo – a veteran engineer in the chip industry, who has worked for Apple for more than two years.
At Microsoft, Filippo is expected to take on the responsibility of developing in-house chips for servers running its cloud computing services and Surface personal computers. Microsoft currently relies heavily on Intel and AMD for chips for its Azure cloud computing services as well as Surface computers.
Mike Filippo used to work at many leading chip companies
The report added that the move to hire Filippo implies that Microsoft is accelerating the production of “homemade” chips used on servers providing its Azure cloud computing service.
Filippo’s LinkedIn profile shows that he started his career as a CPU designer at chip company AMD in 1996. After working at Intel (USA) and Arm (UK), he joined chip design team at Apple.
Currently, neither Microsoft nor Apple has commented on the above information. Before that, Apple also lost the talented general in the Apple Silicon chip manufacturing division, Jeff Wilcox, after he returned to Intel to work. Wilcox is responsible for developing the T2 security chip for Apple, and when he moves to Intel, he will oversee the architecture for all SoC chip designs for the manufacturer.
The recent continuous loss of senior personnel is forcing Apple to find ways to keep the remaining talents attached to the company, as evidenced by the company just offering a bonus of $ 180,000 for technicians. monk.
