Talk about a family rivalry, it seems that AMD CEO Lisa Su is the niece of Nvidia CEO, President and Co-founder, Jen-Hsun Huang. This information comes from Wikipedia, which I do not think is a reliable source of information because people can edit stuff there but this information has been roaming over the internet and I have not seen anyone debunk this information till now.
It seems legit and the Wikipedia page is backed by a source which seems like a Japanese news channel. I did not understand Japanese and I have no idea what the presenter said but I hope the Wikipedia page got the right translation, The page mentions the following:
Recognized with a number of awards and accolades, she was named Executive of the Year by EE Times in 2014 and one of the World’s Greatest Leaders in 2017 by Fortune. She is the niece of NVIDIA’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang.
At this point, I guess only the two CEOs can confirm this bit of information that has been presented to us and it should be very interesting to get to the bottom of this.
AMD CEO Lisa Su has brought the company a long way. While the AMD Radeon side of the business might not be much of threat to Nvidia, AMD has pulled some great moves in the CPU space. Lisa Su had led the company to a new high and we are expecting tons from the company in the future.
AMD Ryzen 2000 series is going great, AMD APUs are coming to notebooks, Threadripper Gen 2 has been announced and we will also be getting the new AMD EPYC Rome CPUs as well. All this in such a short amount of time is a great achievement.
Intel is a much bigger company as compared to AMD and keeping in mind that AMD was absent from the CPU market for a long time, I would say that the comeback is amazing.
Let us know what you think about AMD CEO Lisa Su being the niece of Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang and how you feel about that.
