AMD Extends Energy-Efficient Processing Leadership with World's First
65-Watt Quad-Core Desktop Processor

- AMD Phenom(tm) X4 9100e processor enables full-featured, sleek and
quiet quad-core PCs-

SUNNYVALE, Calif. - March 27, 2008 - AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced the
availability of the world's first energy-efficient desktop quad-core
processor, providing customers with a cool and quiet digital media
workhorse. With AMD Phenom(tm) X4 9100e quad-core processors, digital
media enthusiasts and performance-hungry users can experience the
powerful computing capabilities of a true multi-core architecture with a
processor operating at a maximum of 65-watts.
By coupling an AMD Phenom X4 9100e with an AMD 780 series chipset, AMD
offers an efficient PC platform that plays Blu-ray movies and delivers a
rich computing experience for casual gamers and multimedia enthusiasts.
The processor gives consumers extensive multi-tasking capabilities like
creating digital content while checking and writing e-mails and
simultaneously downloading music files off the Web. AMD Phenom X4 9100e
and AMD 780 series based PCs are ideal for consumers and business
customers looking for cool, quiet, energy-efficient PCs.
"By infusing energy-conscious design into everything related to
AMD - facilities, products and alliances - AMD has emerged as a leader
in establishing eco-friendly practices. The AMD Phenom X4 9100e
processor is our latest endeavor to help customers reduce energy
consumption and environmental impact," said Greg White, corporate vice
president and general manager, desktop and embedded division, AMD.
processors from AMD not only enable differentiated solutions but are
extremely conducive to smaller and sleeker form factors like Home
Theater PCs that take up less space and operate quietly. PCs such as
this can also help reduce energy consumption and the associated
environmental impacts of traditional PC form factors."
"Consumers and businesses alike are requesting smaller, more
elegant PCs that aesthetically complement home and office environments,
offer lower noise for a better computing experience, and deliver the
same performance of larger systems," said Jim McGregor, research
director and principal analyst, In-Stat. "Energy efficient desktop
processors like the AMD Phenom X4 9100e offer greater
performance-per-watt over traditional desktop CPUs while addressing the
growing concerns of end-users for more energy efficient and eco-friendly
The AMD Phenom(tm) X4 9100e processor embodies a series of AMD
energy-efficient innovations, including:
* Cool'n'Quiet(tm) 2.0 technology, the next generation of AMD's
award-winning power saving technology;
* AMD CoolCore(tm) technology, which helps users achieve more
efficient performance by dynamically activating or turning off parts of
the processor as needed;
* Independent Dynamic Core Technology, which allows a fully
independent frequency control per processor core that can reduce
processor energy consumption by adjusting power usage according to core
* Dual Dynamic Power Management(tm), which enables a split power
plane design, allowing independent voltage planes for processor and
memory controller for greater control over performance based on system
* AMD Wideband Frequency Control, for simplified performance state
transitions to help reduce power consumption, latency and software
overhead of performance states changes; and
* Multi-Point Thermal Control, multiple sensors across processor
silicon designed to reduce speed and heat when temperature exceeds
pre-defined limits.

The AMD Phenom(tm) X4 9100e processor is expected to be available from
leading OEMs and System Builders. For processor pricing details, please
