“I’m excited at the opportunity provided by this new role,” Chambers said in a statement. “AMD’s main goal is to work as closely as possible with our customers and business partners to help them win.

“The recent launch of our second-generation Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) will help continue building on our regional retail channel sales momentum.

“We are excited to introduce a new range of APUs for the mainstream and ultrathin notebook markets, where AMD-based computers provide consumers with an uncompromised visual experience and long battery life.”

Before joining AMD, Chambers worked in sales roles at Fuji Xerox and Lexmark.
