AMD has appointed the former vice-chairman of Dell to its board of directors.

AMD has brought in Morton Topfer, who was also formerly executive vice-president at electronics giant Motorola. Topfer, 68, is also managing director at venture capital company Castletop Capital.

AMD chief executive officer Hector Ruiz said, "Mort’s experience at Motorola, Dell and more recently with Castletop Capital will bring an incomparable mix of financial, operational and manufacturing expertise to AMD."

Topfer used to share an office with Michael Dell and current Dell chief executive officer Kevin Rollins. Topfer left the Dell board last year.

Dell currently relies on PC chips from Intel and does not use any from Intel’s main rival AMD.
