Frank Azor was one of the founders of Alienware, the famous equipment manufacturer born in 1996 that Dell acquired in 2006. We all know him for his computers to play high performance with designs like space. Currently, under the wing of Dell has continued to operate as a family of products independent of Dell’s XPS line. On July 3, Azor will leave the company to search for “new challenges”, and as the rumors indicate, this could lead to AMD.
The co-founder has announced his departure in a publication of the Alienware Arean forums, but Twitter adds that it has found “a new opportunity to continue cultivating the video game industry”, without specifying what it is about. However, several publications (WCCFTech, Forbes and HotHardware) have ventured to say that their current destination is AMD. While it is true that these pages claim to quote information from an internal source, there is still no official statement.
If Azor’s entry into the company is confirmed, it would be a great addition to AMD at a time when it has opened before the arrival, on July 7, of the new third-generation Ryzen processors and the new Navi graphics. Aside, remember that over the last year Intel has been busy recruiting talents and key figures in the industry to develop discrete graphic cards that will reach the market in 2020.
I’ll be taking a new opportunity to help continue to grow the gaming industry. @Alienware and @Dell will always be family, and I know they will continue to deliver the best experiences and products in the industry. (2/2) https://t.co/CQvi9NrS0g
