AMD is leading the industry by delivering the benefits of client dual-core
technology to a broader mainstream audience with the addition of the AMD Athlon™
64 X2 dual-core processor 3800+. The newest member to the AMD Athlon 64 X2
dual-core processor family provides consumers with an attractive entry point to
dual-core computing on desktop PCs. Now consumers can experience exceptional
dual-core performance at a mainstream price point.

The AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor line is targeted primarily towards
the prosumer and digital media segments — sophisticated power users who run
multiple processor-intensive applications simultaneously.  Today’s PCs can
operate in multi-tasking environments. With the new AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core
processor 3800+, mainstream consumers now have the ability to multi-task,
creating digital content while listening to MP3s and writing e-mails, allowing
them to do more in less time. Desktop dual-core processors can also deliver
increasingly superior performance as multi-threaded applications spread from the
server to the client and consumer markets.

By introducing the AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor 3800+, AMD is now
offering customers an expanded dual-core desktop processor line that delivers
exceptional dual-core computing benefits across an even broader price and
performance range. Since the launch of the AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor
line in May, AMD has been extremely pleased with its successful sales and
adoption, with more than 40 OEM partners and system builders currently offering
products worldwide.

To enable the rapid adoption of its 90nm dual-core processor line, AMD has fully
converted its manufacturing operations to the 90nm technology generation. The
transition was one of the most rapid and efficient in AMD’s history, due in
large part to its industry-leading Automated Precision Manufacturing systems.
