Shrout commented that “Fall is a season for change! Yesterday was my last day at Intel.” He plans to take a couple weeks off before revealing details on his next venture.

During his time at Intel, Shrout served as Director of Customer Strategy for Graphics and AI and was instrumental in launching the Intel Xe discrete GPU brand starting in 2020.

He worked closely with Raja Koduri and Tom Petersen on Arc graphics, frequently appearing in educational videos and roundtable discussions revealing Xe Alchemist GPU details and driver updates.

Many are already missing his informative, fun videos produced for Intel’s graphics YouTube channel with animated host ‘TAP.’ Shrout brought substantial expertise and enthusiasm in explaining Intel’s graphics plans for a broad audience.

His departure follows Raja Koduri, former Intel graphics head, leaving earlier this year to found an AI startup focused on content generation. Several other Intel graphics veterans have also moved on recently.

Beyond Intel, AMD’s graphics lead Scott Herkelman also announced his year-end exit after 7 years growing Radeon’s RDNA architecture.

Given the slew of transitions among GPU technical marketing leaders, it appears much reshuffling is underway in the industry. With uncertainty surrounding Intel Arc’s future and AMD’s roadmap post-RDNA3, some changeover is unsurprising.

Wherever Ryan Shrout lands next, his technical knowledge and marketing skills will undoubtedly continue making complex graphics technology accessible for the masses. For now, he plans a brief break with family before his next chapter.
