AMD’s Chuck Moore has passed away (semiaccurate.com)

I look forward to seeing articles on Moore's work; I did not have the pleasure of knowing him.

In the meantime, this headline had me a little confused, thinking of the chip designer Chuck Moore who was Forth's creator. It doesn't seem that this is the same Moore. Just FYI :)

-----


Just to further make it easy to confuse the two, the Forth-inventor Chuck Moore is also involved in chip design these days (at Green Arrays - a company doing embedded heavily multi-core chips running a forth-like instruction set)

-----


Thank you for that clarification - I was wondering if it was the same man as invented Forth.

-----


I wondered if it was the person who coined Moore's law, he's not that either.

-----


Intel co-founder Gordon is the Moore of Moore's Law.

-----


This is probably not the right moment, but kinda funny that AMD has also an important person called Moore.

-----


FWIW, Moore is the 9th[1] most common name in the United States.

I also wondered for a while (checking wikipedia and work...). May he rest in peace, even if from that little article I didn't get to know what advancements he was responsible of (and I'm now quite curious about)

-----


For anyone else who is confused, this is not the same Chuck Moore who invented the Forth programming language. As the title states, this is the Chuck Moore of AMD.

-----


This is not the person who coined Moore's law either.

-----


Also, not the guy who played James Bond in the 70s

This is terrible news. I got to work with Chuck Moore in grad school. I was a PhD student when he was a senior member of our research group. At the time he'd already led the design of IBM's Power4, the first multicore processor.

Chuck was a friend. He was a brilliant guy. He will be missed. -d

Ask PG: Can we get a HN black bar for him today?

-----


Using my laptop with AMD fusion processor, I wish Chuck Moore to rest in peace.

Damn, what is it about pancreatic cancer and tech giants?

Must be something in the silicon. (on a lighter note)

It's sad that it's happening so young, wasn't Mr. Moore just a bit over 50?

-----


The tap water in Silicon Valley is generally terrible - a legacy of [a] not enough water in California and [b] the industrial legacy of turning "The Valley of the Heart's Delight" into a manufacturing center.

-----


Can anyone find a Wikipedia article about him? It sure seems he's notable enough to have one.

Wrong Moore.
