Ryan Shrout departs from Intel

Today has seen lot of big changes are happening in the world of semiconductors. First Scott Herkelman revealed his plans to leave AMD. Now, we have news that Ryan Shrout has left Intel. While it may not be uncommon for technologists to move from one company to another, it is uncommon to see several of these announcements on the same day. Well, at least when it comes to public facing employees.

For some PC enthusiasts, Ryan Shrout will be best known for his informative videos on Intel’s ARC series of graphics cards. For others, Ryan Shrout will be known for his work prior to his arrival at Intel in 2018. Ryan Shrout was the head of Shrout Research and the President of the tech news site PC Perspective. Prior to that he was the owner/operator of AMDmb.com, a website that was dedicated to AMD motherboard reviews.

Shrout joined Intel as the company’s Chief Performance Strategist. From there, Shrout became the Senior Director of Technical and Competitive Client Marketing and eventually moved to his position as Senior Director Of Client Strategy for Graphics and AI.

Shrout’s impact on Intel

During his time at Intel, Shrout has had a huge impact on the company’s marketing efforts. He has also revamped how Intel internally analyses their products. He created an in-house “virtual reviews” program that evaluates Intel’s products early to provide a faster feedback loop for future product development. This gives Intel access to feedback ahead of press or public product availability, feedback that can be used to assist with future product development.

September 25th was Ryan Shrout’s last day at Intel. After a few weeks with his family, Shrout plans to reveal “what’s next”. Currently, we can only guess at where Shrout’s going next.
