These changes in the biography of Jim Keller are reported by the Tom’s Hardware website with reference to the official press release of the Canadian startup. In the management of the company, Jim Keller will combine three roles at once: president, technical director and member of the board of directors. Tenstorrent aims to develop a machine learning processor that accelerates low-level software. Keller described the Grayskull processor architecture used by Tenstorrent as promising and expressed confidence in the company’s ability to become “The giant of the next generation computing industry”

Recall that before joining Intel, Jim Keller had a hand in creating the AMD Zen architecture, although the corresponding first-generation processors had already entered the market without his participation. At Apple, Keller worked on the A4 through A7 generations of processors, and in his earlier career created the AMD K7 and K8 architectures. After leaving AMD for a while, he worked at Tesla for a while, and then moved to Intel at the invitation of longtime friend Raja Koduri.
