AMD Delivers Complete and Balanced Solutions for Desktop PCs

- Three new AMD Phenom(tm) X3 triple-core processors add to the
flexibility and scalable performance of AMD processor-based platforms -

SUNNYVALE, Calif. - April 23, 2008 - AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced the
availability of three new AMD Phenom(tm) X3 triple-core processors that,
when combined with the AMD 780 series chipset, can give consumers a full
HD experience and visually stunning gaming and digital performance. As
the world's only triple-core x86 processor, AMD Phenom X3 processors can
bring multi-core technology to a broader audience in search of desktop
processors that easily handle today's multi-threaded digital
entertainment workloads.
The proliferation of digital media devices and entertainment changes the
way consumers use PCs and creates stronger demand on the processing and
graphics capabilities. Two of the biggest determinants of the user
experience when purchasing a PC are graphics and processors, with
consumers weighing trade-offs. AMD solution-based PCs can free consumers
from this dilemma with balanced platforms that enable the Ultimate
Visual Experience complete with scalability and great value.
"In today's market customers are too often forced to weigh the benefits
of one component over another while sifting through one-sided marketing
claims," said Leslie Sobon, AMD director of Product and Brand
Management. "AMD is the only company in the world that is able to
deliver a balanced platform solution without compromising performance,
delivering a thrilling visual experience and powerful multi-threaded
application performance."

True multi-core technology based on AMD's Direct Connect Architecture
has enabled AMD to bring the industry's first and only triple-core
desktop processor to market. These unique processors possess benefits
similar to those available with AMD Phenom X4 quad-core processors and
are designed to increase performance for today's multitasking usage
models and multi-threaded digital media and game applications in
comparison to dual-core processors at the same clock speed. The new AMD
Phenom X3 triple-core processors respond to market demand for increased
performance with multi-core capabilities, as well as real world
scenarios like running state-of-the-art applications on Windows
"AMD multi-core technology, including AMD Phenom X4 and AMD Phenom X3
processors, lead the growing trend toward power and performance
improvements in desktop computing," said Keith Smith, director for the
Microsoft Developer Division at Microsoft Corp. "As an industry leader
taking advantage of multi-core technology, we are planning to utilize
the powerful processing technology of AMD Phenom X4 and AMD Phenom X3
processors to benefit customers using the Microsoft suite of products."
AMD solution-based desktop platforms allow channel partners flexibility
and choice, while providing platform differentiation to meet the varying
demands of their end-users. AMD has unique mainstream value with AMD
Phenom X3 processors and AMD 780G chipsets; platforms based on this
solution can deliver the processing and visual performance users have
historically received only in higher end systems. The addition of ATI
Radeon(tm) graphics processors enables a range of compelling, premium
desktop offerings, delivering the ultimate gaming and digital media
entertainment experience. Specifically, ATI Hybrid Graphics Technology
can accelerate performance by harnessing the power of both the ATI
discrete graphics card and the motherboard's AMD 780G integrated
graphics for outstanding performance and value.

Industry Support
"By using the combination of AMD Phenom(tm) X3 triple-core processors
and the latest AMD 780G motherboards, we now have the ability to create
incredibly powerful high definition home entertainment systems for our
customers. When customers witness the smooth playback of their Blu-Ray
movies and their other high definition content on our machines, they are
just blown away!"
Todd Swank - VP of Marketing, Nor-Tech

"The AMD 780G chipset and AMD Phenom(tm) X3 processors are fantastic
additions to our award-winning luxury PCs. They provide an elegant
platform for our Axess HD media center with full support for Blu-ray and
digital cable at full HD 1080p resolution - without the need for a
discrete video solution. In addition, ATI Hybrid Graphics gives an edge
to our Dash Friends and Family PC with more powerful 3D performance for
today's demanding games. We couldn't be more thrilled with the AMD
Phenom X3 processor and AMD 780G chipset from AMD."
Wallace Santos - CEO and Founder, Maingear

"Our Gamer Ultra Series are proud to feature the latest AMD Phenom(tm)
X3 8000 Series triple-core processors paired with the robust AMD 780G
chipset; this unique pairing enhances video quality and efficiency in
desktop computing, enabling Cyberpower PC to bring customers superior
gaming solutions at an incredible price."
Eric Cheung - CEO, Cyberpower
