SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(CCNMatthews - Jul 13, 2005) -

Microprocessor Business Establishes New All-time Quarterly Records in Total Sales, Server and Mobile Processor Sales, Gross Margin, and Operating Income

AMD (NYSE:AMD) today reported sales of $1.260 billion and net income of $11 million, amounting to $0.03 per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 26, 2005.

Second quarter sales were flat compared to the second quarter of 2004 and increased three percent from the first quarter of 2005. In the second quarter of 2004, AMD reported sales of $1.262 billion and net income of $32 million, or $0.09 per diluted share. In the first quarter of 2005, AMD reported sales of $1.227 billion and a net loss of $17 million, or $0.04 per share. The operating loss was $7 million as compared to operating income of $72 million in the second quarter of 2004 and an operating loss of $46 million in the first quarter of 2005.

"Our microprocessor business delivered another record quarter driven by increased demand for AMD server and mobile processors from our largest global OEM customers," said Robert J. Rivet, AMD's chief financial officer. "Once again we continued to gain momentum with microprocessor sales growth increasing 38 percent compared to the second quarter of 2004. The solid overall demand was enhanced by our newer processor offerings. Strong Dual-Core AMD Opteron™ processor sales contributed to an 89 percent revenue increase in our server products from the prior quarter. This demonstrates the acceptance of the AMD64 platform by enterprise customers. Likewise, the AMD Turion™64 processor captured more than 60 design wins and drove record mobile sales in the thin-and-light mobile PC category."

"Memory Products Group sales increased slightly in the quarter, driven by record MirrorBit™ Flash memory sales and overall higher unit demand."

Business Overview

Second quarter gross margin was 39 percent compared to 34 percent in the first quarter of 2005. The improvement was largely due to record Computation Products Group (CPG) gross margins.

Record CPG sales of $767 million increased 38 percent from the second quarter of 2004 and increased two percent from $750 million in the first quarter of 2005. CPG generated record operating income of $110 million in the second quarter, up from $92 million in the first quarter of 2005. CPG's second quarter sales growth was driven by record server and mobile processor sales, a six percent higher overall average selling price, and record sales to our largest global OEM customers. Geographically, sales were especially strong in China, North America and all of our high-growth markets.

Memory Products Group sales of $462 million decreased 31 percent from the second quarter of 2004 and increased three percent from $447 million in the first quarter or 2005. Memory Products Group incurred an operating loss of $90 million, as compared to an operating loss of $110 million in the first quarter of 2005. MirrorBit Flash memory sales accelerated to more than 20 percent of total Memory Products Group sales in the quarter, with increased wireless demand for second-generation, 110nm MirrorBit devices. Quarter-over-quarter, sales in Europe and the Americas increased and unit volume shipments were up twelve percent.

Cautionary Statement

This release contains forward-looking statements concerning the fiscal quarter ending September 25, 2005, which are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Investors are cautioned that the forward-looking statements in this release involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from the company's current expectations. Risks that the company considers to be the important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those set forth in the forward-looking statements include the possibility that global business and economic conditions will worsen resulting in lower than currently expected sales in the third quarter of 2005; that Intel Corporation's pricing, marketing programs, product bundling, new product introductions or other activities targeting the company's processor business will prevent attainment of the company's current processor sales plans; that demand for computers, and, in turn, demand for the company's processors will be lower than currently expected; that adoption of AMD64 products by OEMs will not continue to occur as expected; that demand for the company's Flash memory products will be lower than currently expected; that Intel Corporation's pricing, marketing programs, product bundling, new product introductions or other activities will negatively affect NOR Flash memory prices; that OEMs will increasingly choose NAND-based Flash memory products over NOR-based Flash memory products for their applications; that customer acceptance of MirrorBit technology will not continue to increase; that the company may not achieve its current product and technology introduction or implementation schedules; that the company will not be able to raise sufficient capital to enable it to establish leading-edge capacity to maintain its market leadership positions and that solutions providers will not timely provide the infrastructure to support the company's AMD64 technology. We urge investors to review in detail the risks and uncertainties in the company's Securities and Exchange Commission filings, including but not limited to the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 26, 2004 and the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 27, 2005.
