CORRECTION: ATI Drives the Overwhelming Majority of Windows Vista'TM' PCs at Microsoft's Windows Hardware Engineering Conference 'WinHEC'

MARKHAM, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - May 23, 2006) -

The following corrects and replaces the release sent on May 23, 2006 at 0600 ET titled "ATI Drives the Overwhelming Majority of Windows Vista'TM' PCs at Microsoft's Windows Hardware Engineering Conference 'WinHEC'". There was an error in the body of the release. The complete and corrected release follows.

ATI Technologies' (TSX:ATY)(NASDAQ:ATYT) superior support of Microsoft Windows Vista™ has made the company's graphics processors the natural choice to power an overwhelming majority of demo PCs running the new operating system at WinHEC, May 22-25 in Seattle, WA. Over 220 Windows Vista demo systems on display at the event feature ATI graphics processors-a testament to ATI's exceptional driver stability and advanced support of the new operating system which is set to launch to consumers in January 2007.

Windows Vista demonstration PCs at the event which use ATI graphics processors include 35 AMD gaming systems running the latest game titles on the new operating system, as well as 185 desktop PCs-all of which are publicly accessible by conference delegates to experience Windows Vista first hand.

"Windows Vista represents a huge opportunity for ATI because it makes dedicated, high performance graphics matter to everyone, not just gamers," said Ben Bar-Haim, VP of Software, ATI Technologies. "The fact that ATI is driving the vast majority of publicly displayed Windows Vista demo PCs at WinHEC demonstrates we are more than ready for the new operating system when it launches- with our complete top-to-bottom line of graphics processors."
