AMD Duron™ processor enables superior PC solutions for value concious business and home users

" Systems featuring the AMD Duron processor planned to be available worldwide from Compaq, Fujitsu-Siemens, HP, IBM, NEC, Systemax and others. "

SUNNYVALE, CA-- AMD introduced the AMD Duron™ processor, delivering industry-leading performance for businesses and consumers in the value PC space, characterized by systems that typically sell for less than $1,000. The AMD Duron processor is available today at speed grades of 700MHz, 650MHz, and 600MHz.

The AMD Duron processor provides up to 25 percent more performance on many industry leading benchmarks than an Intel Celeron processor at the same clock speed. Leading computer manufacturers worldwide have announced plans to offer AMD Duron processor-based systems, including Compaq, Fujitsu-Siemens, Hewlett-Packard Company, IBM, NEC, Systemax and others.

AMD Duron processor-based systems are ideal for applications commonly used by value-conscious users, including word processing, sending or receiving e-mails, managing personal finances, surfing the Internet and running edutainment products. "With the AMD Duron processor in the value space and the AMD Athlon™ processor in the performance space, AMD now offers superior solutions, top to bottom, across all desktop system price points. Regardless of how much business and home users want to spend, at any given system price point, they will get a better PC with an AMD processor-based system," said Hector Ruiz, president and chief operating officer of AMD.

"During the past year, thanks to strong execution and its overall processor portfolio, AMD grew its unit share of the microprocessor market noticeably. AMD looks to continue its success with the AMD Duron processor," said George Iwanyc, principal analyst at Dataquest.

"The AMD Duron™ processor is an innovative processor designed for the value PC market. With the AMD Duron processor, computer users will get a PC capable of running today's applications with ease, and with enough power to run the applications of tomorrow," said Brett Faulk, director of Retail Desktop Product Marketing at Compaq.

"With the AMD Duron processor, value PC purchasers will receive a no-compromise chip, offering the ultimate combination of capability, durability and value in low-cost systems," said Dick Grote, R&D Manager for HP's home products division.

"IBM is committed to providing high-quality computing solutions for individual customers," said Tom Tobul, worldwide manager desktop product marketing. "With the new AMD Duron processor, IBM expects to continue to build on the success we have had with past AMD processors."

"We recognize the AMD Duron processor is a superior product with its innovative processor core design and affordability," said Koichi Inoue, general manager, Desktop Products Division, Personal Systems Business Group, Fujitsu Ltd.

The AMD Duron processor is a derivative of the award-winning AMD Athlon processor and is designed to provide an optimized solution for value conscious business and home users. Employing an innovative design, the AMD Duron processor features a sophisticated cache architecture with 192KB of total on-chip cache; a high-speed 200MHz front-side bus, and a superscalar floating point unit with enhanced 3DNow!™ technology. The AMD Duron processor offers value conscious buyers access to technology and performance that stands out among other processors in its class. It reflects AMD's 30 years of design and manufacturing expertise and sales of more than 125 million PC processors. AMD Duron processors are manufactured on AMD's 0.18 micron process technology in Fab 25, Austin, Texas.
