Scott Herkelman has announced that he is leaving AMD at the end of the year. Herkelman, who currently serves as Senior Vice President and General Manager of AMD’s Graphics Business Unit, revealed the news on X today, pointing out that he has been with red team for seven years already, with career achievements that include launching three generations of AMD Radeon graphics cards based on the RDNA architectures. There doesn’t seem to be any word yet on where he’s headed, but AMD named Jack Huynh as its new Senior Vice President and General Manager, Computing and Graphics, earlier this year.

After seven years at AMD and launching three increasingly competitive generations of RDNA graphics architectures, I have decided to leave AMD at the end of this year.

I will miss every single one of you, fighting shoulder to shoulder in the trenches together, the excitement we shared during new product launches, and the joy of being in the arena for this wonderful, vibrant industry.

May you continue to punch above your weight class and one day… beat the final boss.
