AMD today announced it began this month offering microprocessors with reduced lead content to customers worldwide, nearly one year in advance of a regulatory deadline to reduce lead in electronic products. AMD began offering RoHS-compliant* processors earlier this month, including the AMD Opteron™, AMD Athlon™ 64, AMD Athlon 64 X2, AMD Athlon 64 FX, AMD Turion™ 64 Mobile Technology and AMD Sempron™ families of processors. AMD also has several RoHS-compliant chipsets already available, including the AMD-8111™, AMD-8131™, AMD-8132™ and AMD-8151™ chipsets.

AMD today announced it began this month offering microprocessors with reduced
lead content to customers worldwide, nearly one year in advance of a regulatory
deadline to reduce lead in electronic products.

AMD is committed to developing products that optimize energy use, save money and
help protect the environment. AMD has been striving to reduce the lead content
of its PC processor and chipset products and to transition to lead-free for
several years.

The European Union has established a directive that restricts the use of lead by
electronics manufacturers. The Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS)
legislation takes effect July 1, 2006.

AMD began offering RoHS-compliant* processors earlier this month, including the
AMD Opteron™, AMD Athlon™ 64, AMD Athlon 64 X2, AMD Athlon 64 FX, AMD Turion™ 64
Mobile Technology and AMD Sempron™ families of processors. AMD also has several
RoHS-compliant chipsets already available, including the AMD-8111™, AMD-8131™,
AMD-8132™ and AMD-8151™ chipsets.

“AMD has been committed to using environmentally friendly materials in our
operations,” said Dirk Meyer, President and Chief Operating Officer of AMD’s
Microprocessor Solutions Sector. “AMD is steadfastly developing effective
technical solutions that reduce lead content and achieve RoHS compliance without
sacrificing other product features.”

AMD began identifying solutions for production of lead-free semiconductor
packages in 2001. AMD has formed a lead-free research and development program,
and is working with suppliers and other industry leaders to establish lead-free
standards and testing requirements, as well as to identify lead substitutes.

In addition to its own manufacturing initiatives, AMD is actively supporting a
number of key consortia among industry, universities and trade associations to
expedite the development of lead-free technology.
