Apple s ex-employees seem to be quite in demand in the job market. After Facebook snapped up former Apple Maps executive Richard Williamson, a report on CNET now claims that chipmaker Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has reportedly hired former Apple graphics chip designer Raja Koduri to join its engineering team.

Koduri, who served as AMD s chief technology officer, left the company in 2009 to join Apple which was in the process of ramping up its own chip manufacturing business. After working for about four years, Koduri left the Cupertino-based company last month and since then, according to CNET, AMD has been trying to persuade Koduri to return to the California-based company.
As part of AMD s engineering team, Koduri is expected to have an important role in the chipmaker s graphics team, though his exact designation is currently not known. A formal announcement is expected sometime this week.
