AMD today welcomed three new participants – Supermicro Computer, Inc., Tyan
Computer Corporation and Uniwide Technologies, Inc. – to its Validated Server
Program (VSP), broadening the program’s reach in North America and Europe and
into new geographical regions. AMD’s VSP is designed to connect solution
providers with VSP participants to obtain qualified, reliable, stable and
well-supported server solutions based on single- and Dual-Core AMD Opteron™
processors with the industry’s best performance-per-watt. The three new
participants are expected to introduce new platforms to be sold under the VSP
banner later this quarter in North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America.
Product availability information will be communicated when the specific new
platforms are announced beginning later this quarter. More information on the

AMD today welcomed three new participants – Supermicro Computer, Inc., Tyan
Computer Corporation and Uniwide Technologies, Inc. – to its Validated Server
Program (VSP), broadening the program’s reach in North America and Europe and

banner later this quarter in North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America.

“The scope and breadth of reliable, stable server solutions validated by AMD for
the channel is growing substantially, giving solution providers, system
integrators and value-added resellers and their customers more choices and quick
access to AMD64 technology,” said Pat Moorhead, vice president, Global Channel
Marketing, Microprocessor Solutions Sector, AMD. “Adding these three stellar
companies further strengthens our Validated Server Program, which is designed to
help our solution provider customers develop and offer top-quality server
solutions to meet the needs and demands of end-users. Each of these
manufacturers has met rigorous standards of performance and service in order to
participate.”

The VSP program was launched in June 2003, connecting solution providers with
servers from Newisys, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sanmina-SCI. Newisys is an
original design manufacturer providing server and storage systems for leading
original equipment manufacturers and system builders.

VSP systems are thoroughly tested for quality, compatibility, longevity and
stability and are backed by global manufacturers who provide world-class service
and support.

Joining the program are Supermicro Computer, a market leader in x86 server and
motherboard solutions for the distribution channel; Tyan Computer Corporation, a
well-renowned designer and manufacturer of advanced x86 and x86-64 platform and
system technology for OEMs, VARs and system builders worldwide; and Uniwide
Technologies, a leader in AMD Opteron processor-based server and workstation
bare-bones platforms.

“AMD’s dual-core technology represents a paradigm shift for speed and power in
compute-intensive applications,” said Dr. T. Symon Chang, CEO of Tyan Computer
Corporation. “Working closely with AMD to deliver a full range of validated
system and platform products based on AMD’s latest processor technology is a
testament to Tyan’s commitment to meeting or exceeding our customers’
expectations.”

“Our system builder and OEM customers around the world are winning opportunities
with UniServer™, featuring one of the industry’s highest memory capacities (8
DIMM sockets per CPU) for two-way and four-way servers,” said Daniel Kim,
president and CEO, Uniwide Technologies, Inc. “By joining AMD’s Validated Server
Program, we are even better positioned to address their computing demands for
AMD Opteron processor-based server products featuring the industry’s best
performance per watt.”

“Supermicro continues to broaden its portfolio of server solutions based on
single- and Dual-Core AMD Opteron processors, and we are pleased to step up to
the critical benchmarks of AMD’s Validated Server Program,” said Alex Hsu,
senior vice president, Supermicro Computer, Inc. “Supermicro’s advanced AMD64
dual-core solutions are designed with uncompromising quality control to deliver
outstanding performance and reliability to help end users realize the full
potential of their business-critical applications.”
