TSMC is in volume production of multiple 90nm products for ATI, including the
Radeon® X1800, Radeon® X1600 and Radeon® X1300 series chips, and has shipped
large quantities of production wafers to ATI. "The ATI products produced with
TSMC’s 90nm process show a tremendous clock speed improvement and power
reduction versus earlier generation technologies," said Jason Chen, Vice
President of Corporate Development for TSMC. " TSMC’s state-of-the-art 90nm
technology frees ATI from the limitations of less-advanced processes and enables
a whole new level of performance and functionality for PC graphics. For example,
the new ATI products have clock speeds around 50 per cent higher than
products manufactured on older processes. ATI expects the latest cards to begin
arriving on store shelves by the end of September.

ATI Technologies, Inc. and TSMC have announced that TSMC is in volume
production of multiple 90 nanometer (nm) products for ATI, including the Radeon®
X1800, Radeon® X1600 and Radeon® X1300 series chips, and has shipped large
quantities of production wafers to ATI.

"The ATI products produced with TSMC’s 90nm process show a tremendous clock
speed improvement and power reduction versus earlier generation technologies,"
said Jason Chen, Vice President of Corporate Development for TSMC. "As a result,
TSMC is currently processing thousands of 300mm wafers for ATI, with many more
already delivered. At this aggressive pace, ATI has already become one of our
major 90nm customers."

"TSMC has done an excellent job of delivering on yields and speeds," said Rick
Bergman, Senior Vice President of ATI’s PC Business Unit. "As ever, they’ve
proven themselves an excellent manufacturing partner as we ramp up some of the
most advanced technology consumers have ever seen."
