Key OEM Customers Announce Support For Dual-Core AMD Opteron™ Processors

— Sun, HP and IBM showcase dual-core platforms based on dual-core AMD64 processors; Leading server solutions providers to begin offering AMD Opteron processor-based systems —

NEW YORK -- April 21, 2005 --In support of the Dual-Core AMD Opteron™ processor, the industry's first enterprise-class x86 dual-core processor for servers and workstations launched today, AMD (NYSE: AMD) announced its key OEM and system builder customers will introduce a broad portfolio of server and workstation dual-core solutions.

AMD's key OEM customers, including Sun, HP and IBM, announced today their intention to launch ground-breaking, dual-core processor-based platforms based on the non-disruptive AMD64 dual-core technology, the world's leading x86, 64-bit computing environment. Additional partners also announced dual-core systems.

'Because we built AMD64 technology from the ground-up for multi-core processing, it is a non-disruptive, upgradeable platform, for high-performance software and hardware solutions. AMD OEM partners and system builders can now have several inherent advantages over the competition—faster time-to-market, lower design and support costs and potentially lower cost of operations. This is the height of customer-centric innovation,' said Marty Seyer, corporate vice president and general manager, Microprocessor Business Unit, Computation Products Group, AMD. 'AMD64 dual-core processors are designed to fit inside the same thermal envelope and infrastructure as our AMD64 single-core processors. OEMs who will be supporting upgrades of dual-core processors can perform a BIOS upgrade and immediately enable their existing AMD64 platforms to take advantage of the power of dual-core processing for servers and workstations. AMD leads this market with superior innovation, superior architecture and an unwavering vision with dual core.'
