Frank Azor officially joins AMD as “Chief Architect of Gaming Solutions”

Today, AMD’s CEO, Lisa Su, has confirmed that Frank Azor has officially joined AMD as the company’s “Chief Architect of Gaming Solutions”. Previously Frank Azor worked for Dell and Alienware, co-founding the latter company. 

Frank Azor is a major talent win for AMD, acting as an industry icon across the gaming sector. Azor will be reporting to AMD’s head of Computing and Graphics, Sandeep Chennakeshu, and will be tasked with building and expanding the company’s relationships with members of the PC, console and cloud ecosystems across semi-custom, Ryzen/EPYC CCU and Radeon RX/Instinct product stacks. 

At Alienware, Azor helped pioneer the world of gaming notebooks, starting with the Area-51m. Since then, Azor has had executive roles within Alienware and later Dell, the latter of which has become the largest seller of gaming PCs within the industry. AMD now hopes that this talent will be able to help AMD gain more traction within the gaming market, especially now that the company has secured the next-generation of Sony/Microsoft consoles. 

AMD is doing well within today’s gaming market, especially within the console space, but the company could be doing a lot better. Azor’s influence could prove critical as AMD moves forward, especially as AMD’s Ryzen and RDNA products are developed further.
