Rick Bergman, Scott Herkelman, and Saeid Moshkelani SVP and GM of Client are gone
Some of our colleagues jumped to the conclusion Scott Herkelman is getting replaced by Jack Huynh who now works as a Senior Vice President and GM, Computing and Graphics Business Group. This is actually the job that Jack is taking over from Bergman. It is not clear why Lisa Su, the CEO of AMD, is imposing such radical changes at this time, but we might have some ideas.
Industry veteran to leave at the end of this year
Scott Herkelman, Senior Vice President and General Manager of AMD’s Graphics Business Unit, has announced his departure from AMD at the end of this year, marking the end of an era and leaving us wondering where he is going next. Scott has been at AMD for the last seven years and launched three generations of RDNA graphics architectures.
Custom versions could launch the day after
AMD is said to launch its new Radeon RX 7800 and RX 7700 series graphics card on August 25th, with AMD AIB partners like ASRock and Powercolor teasing their versions already. Custom versions, according to fresh rumors, could launch a day after, on August 26th.
Radeon RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT, possibly HYPR-RX and FSR3 as well
AMD's Scott Herkelman, Senior VP and GM at AMD has confirmed that AMD will unveil new products at Gamescom 2023 on August 25th. While AMD does not confirm specific products, the best bet is on the recently rumored and leaked Radeon RX 7800 XT and Radeon RX 7700 XT graphics cards, and, possibly, the HYPR-RX and FSR3.
