Update: Lisa Su Introduces Frank Azor
AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su introduces Frank Azor as AMD's new Chief Architect of Gaming Solutions. The introduction was announced at Lisa Su's twitter account. With AMD's recent success with the launch of the third-generation Ryzen 3000 Series processors and Radeon RX 5700 Series GPUs, more successes should come in AMD's way having an industry-veteran like Azor on their team. AMD may have regained its competitiveness in the desktop market today but we hope to see AMD take on the gaming laptop market seriously in the near future. The addition of Frank Azor is looking to be a step forward to that direction.
