SUNNYVALE, CA -- August 17, 2004 --AMD (NYSE: AMD) announced today that it is achieving a smooth transition to 90 nanometer (nm) manufacturing and has shipped low-power 90nm Mobile AMD Athlon™ 64 processors for thin and light notebooks (previously codenamed 'Oakville') for revenue. Manufacturers are expected to launch systems based on the new 90nm Mobile AMD Athlon™ 64 processors in the coming months.
In addition to providing performance and power benefits to AMD64 products today, the transition keeps AMD on track with its plans to deliver 90nm dual-core products mid-next year and also provides operational benefits such as increased production capacities.
