After seven years as the prominent face of AMD’s Radeon division, Scott Herkelman has announced his departure from the company, set to take effect at the end of this year. Scott’s farewell comes on the heels of his active involvement in AMD’s recent launch of the Radeon RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT graphics cards, marking a fitting culmination to his tenure.

Throughout his time at AMD, Scott Herkelman was more than just a spokesperson; he was an embodiment of Radeon graphics. His approachability and willingness to engage with the community set him apart, as he frequently dropped hints about upcoming Radeon developments and eagerly tackled challenges faced by Radeon graphics cards.

The GPU industry is known for its rapid pace and fierce competition, there is an abundance of opportunities for Scott. With three major players now vying for dominance in the discrete graphics sector, Herkelman’s expertise and experience will undoubtedly find a new home where he can continue to shape the future of graphics technology.
