AMD ANNOUNCES MOBILE AMD DURON(tm) PROCESSOR, FIRST SEVENTH GENERATION
PROCESSOR FOR NOTEBOOK PCS

-NEC Japan introduces "LaVie U" all-in-one Notebook with
700MHz Mobile AMD Duron( Processor-

TOKYO, JAPAN-January 15, 2001-AMD today announced the immediate availability
of the Mobile AMD Duron(tm) processor for notebook PCs. The Mobile AMD Duron
processor is the first seventh-generation processor to enter the notebook
market, and is available in volume today at speed grades of 700 and 600MHz.

"AMD has had tremendous success with the Mobile AMD-K6(r) family of
processors, and plans to build on that success with a new family of
seventh-generation mobile products in 2001," said Pat Moorhead, Vice
President of Marketing at AMD's Computation Products Group. "The Mobile AMD
Duron processor allows us to offer our customers a great solution by
providing compelling performance and excellent value for notebook computing
performance that is significantly ahead of the competition at similar price
points," he said.

NEC has announced that its "LaVie U" series of notebook PCs will use the
700MHz Mobile AMD Duron processor. Designed for consumers, the notebooks
will include a 14" or 13" TFT display (XGA) and a 20GB hard drive. The
lineup will feature three models, including a model equipped with a fast 8X
CD-R/RW drive and one with a DVD-ROM drive that can be connected to a home
TV to watch DVD video. All models are scheduled to begin shipping January
25.

"AMD is excited that NEC Japan is using the Mobile AMD Duron processor to
power its new LaVie U notebooks," said Moorhead. "Japan is extremely
important to AMD's success," he said, noting that Japan is the second
largest notebook PC market in the world.

"In the first half of 2001, we expect to see seventh-generation notebook
systems become available in other markets and from additional
manufacturers," said Moorhead.

AMD was the first to bring technologies such as a 100MHz front side bus and
3D instruction set extensions to the notebook market with its award-winning
AMD-K6 family of processors. AMD is taking the lead again by bringing
capabilities such as a 200MHz front side bus and a superscalar
floating-point unit to the x86 PC notebook market, allowing the Mobile AMD
Duron processor to offer great excellent multimedia application performance.
for its class.

Based on the current AMD Duron processor core, the Mobile AMD Duron
processor runs at a lower core voltage than the desktop version, and
consumes less power. The Mobile AMD Duron processor is the first in the line
of seventh-generation mobile processors that AMD plans to introduce in 2001.

Pricing
The 700MHz and 600MHz Mobile AMD Duron processors are priced at $123 and $75
