Hi all,

Just wondered how you would become a CPU/Microprocessor Architect/Designer for either Intel or AMD?

I'm not wanting to become a CPU architect or anything - I'm thick as a plank! -not clever enough!! - but just how to people who do design them get there jobs....

do you need maths/phyisics/ degrees in engineerings????

anything on this topic would be great!!
