AMD hires software specialist to write better drivers

When it comes to PC graphics cards AMD’s graphics division (formerly ATI) has always had nice video solutions with great performance and a number of nice features. Video cards are not hardware only, unfortunately, and even if you have the latest and greatest 3D card you need a software driver to power the hardware inside. This is where AMD lacks – despite the company’s premium hardware offers drivers have always been somewhat buggy, a fact that stems from AMD’s ATI past. A while ago we wrote that AMD would try to dramatically improve the quality of its video card drivers as part of the company’s new business strategy and now we see the first steps in this direction.

The thing is that AMD is now looking for a software specialist who, if hired, will work on improving the company’s software drivers. The person hired will have a specific task – to look for weak spots in the software drivers who make the cards depend too much on the power of processor that sends them data.

The perfect candidate for this AMD position should have experience with AMD processors and video cards, 5 years (or more) of programming in C, C++ and assembler and suitable education. The people selected should also live in California or Massachusetts but if they do not then this is not a problem.

Let’s hope to soon see dramatically improved AMD graphics drivers.
