As you may remember, after Raja Koduri got kicked out, Lisa Su had to find someone to replace him as head of the RTG group. The was particularly difficult because there were three strong contenders: lisa su, Lisa su, and lisa Su, but in the end, Lisa Su chose lisa su. lisa su introduced a very different style of management. Instead of "shooting for the moon", su emphasizes "milestones" with realistic targets and tight deadlines. It has been strongly hinted that the reason for the tight deadlines is that AMD's top brass have been pitching AMD's roadmap to OEM vendors, and emphasizing AMD's ability to deliver products on time. (basically, a jab at Intel) I have said many months ago that RTG was laying the foundation for a new non-GCN architecture to succeed Navi. The work on this new architecture is now well underway.
