Frank Azor, the co-founder and public face of Alienware and also the long-term overseer of the gaming and XPS divisions of Dell, has revealed that he will leave his current position on July 3. From the beginning at Alienware 21 years ago, Azor announced that he is taking on a new challenge with a thank you message on the Alienware community board.
Wccftech has caught the wind of the likely destination of Azor, the source of which indicates it is about to become AMD & # 39; s first chief gaming officer, reporting to Sandeep Chennakeshu, who is the newly appointed vice president who is in charge of the Computer and Graphics business group at AMD. When reached for comment from The edge, Azor refused to proceed with his departure message and did not want to confirm or reject the reports on his next destination.
"The developer and creator in me is ready for the next challenge," read Azor & # 39; s message to fans of Alienware. In October 2018, he proudly revealed that Dell's gaming activities were worth $ 3 billion, far surpassing all other game hardware manufacturers. That seems like a suitable time to look for new opportunities and AMD is a company with an upward trajectory. This year, it has expanded its gaming login data to secure chips for the next Xbox and PlayStation and Google Stages. Apple & # 39; s 2019 Mac Pro will also rely on Radeon graphics cards.
Chief gaming officer is not a particularly common (or serious, incidentally) title, but given Azor & # 39; s established seniority as a leader at Dell, it speaks both of his likely influence within AMD and the importance of gaming for the future activities of that company. Perhaps, as he did with Alienware, Azor will be a pioneer in the professional discipline of CGO, and others will follow in his wake.
