As of 2020, Frank holds 16 patents granted under his name and has been named a milestone inventor by Dell. In the summer of 2019 it was announced that Frank would be departing Dell to join AMD as Chief Architect of Gaming Solutions and Marketing. At AMD, Frank is responsible for the design and definition of innovative platform technologies and solutions using AMD’s proprietary intellectual property.
