— Over 80 Glo­bal Retailers and Sys­tem Inte­gra­tors offer Immedia­te Pre-Order Oppor­tu­nities of
flagship 32-core, 64-thread 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen Thre­ad­rip­per 2990WX Worldwide —

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Aug. 6, 2018 — AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) today announ­ced immedia­te worldwide
pre-order avai­la­bi­li­ty from over 80 glo­bal etailers and sys­tem inte­gra­tors­for the high­ly anti­ci­pa­ted flagship
2nd Gen AMD Ryzen Thre­ad­rip­per desk­top pro­ces­sor. Brea­king the world-record Cine­bench R15 multithreaded
CPU test with the hig­hest bench­mark scores in the sin­gle-socket desk­top pro­ces­sor category,
the 32-core, 64-thread 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen Thre­ad­rip­per 2990WX is desi­gned for pro­fes­sio­nal content
creators, deve­lo­pers, and PC enthu­si­asts. The 2nd Gen line-up fea­tures four total pro­ces­sor models coming
to mar­ket in 2018, all of which are built on the 12nm “Zen+” core archi­tec­tu­re, inclu­de the uni­que 2nd Gen
AMD Ryzen pro­ces­sor fea­ture set, and are com­pa­ti­ble with exis­ting and new X399 mother­boards. With
the 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen Thre­ad­rip­per 2990WX and 2970WX pro­ces­sors, AMD adds the new Ryzen
Thre­ad­rip­per WX Seri­es abo­ve the exis­ting Ryzen Thre­ad­rip­per X Seri­es pro­ces­sors, mee­ting creators’
deman­ds for the ulti­ma­te desk­top com­pu­ting power for the most inten­se workloads.

We crea­ted a new stan­dard for the HEDT mar­ket when we laun­ched our first Ryzen Threadripper
pro­ces­sors a year ago, deli­vering a ground-brea­king level of com­pu­ting power for the world’s most
deman­ding PC users,” said Jim Ander­son, seni­or vice pre­si­dent and gene­ral mana­ger, Com­pu­ting and
Gra­phics Busi­ness Group, AMD. “Our goal with 2nd Gen Ryzen Thre­ad­rip­per pro­ces­sors was to push the
per­for­mance bounda­ries even fur­ther and con­ti­nue inno­vat­ing at the blee­ding edge. Begin­ning on August
13, creators, enthu­si­asts, and gamers ever­y­whe­re will get to expe­ri­ence the bene­fits of the­se new
products.”

During an event in front of glo­bal press, indus­try ana­lysts, and part­ners last mon­th, 2nd Gen Ryzen
Thre­ad­rip­per 2990WX pro­ces­sors were put through their paces and have alrea­dy bro­ken world records1
in the Cine­bench R15 mul­ti-threa­ded CPU test. The AMD Ryzen Over­clo­cking Team mana­ged to push the
2nd Gen AMD Ryzen Thre­ad­rip­per 2990WX CPU to over 5.1GHz on liquid nitro­gen, achie­ving record
brea­king per­for­mance with a score of 7,618, bea­ting the cur­rent sin­gle socket record set by the
competition’s Core i9-7980­XE CPU at 5,828 points. The free­ly avail­ab­le Ryzen Mas­ter Soft­ware uti­li­ty gives
broad con­trol of CPU2set­tings allowing users to squee­ze every drop of per­for­mance from their CPU.

Cau­tio­na­ry Statement
This press release con­tains for­ward-loo­king state­ments con­cer­ning Advan­ced Micro Devices, Inc.
(AMD) inclu­ding the fea­tures, func­tio­n­a­li­ty, avai­la­bi­li­ty, timing and expec­ted bene­fits of AMD’s current
and future pro­ducts, inclu­ding 2nd Genera­ti­on AMD Ryzen™ Thre­ad­rip­per™ pro­ces­sors, which are made
pur­suant to the Safe Har­bor pro­vi­si­ons of the Pri­va­te Secu­ri­ties Liti­ga­ti­on Reform Act of 1995. Forwardlooking
state­ments are com­mon­ly iden­ti­fied by words such as “would,” “intends,” “belie­ves,” “expects,”
“may,” “will,” “should,” “seeks,” “intends,” “plans,” “pro for­ma,” “esti­ma­tes,” “anti­ci­pa­tes,” or the
nega­ti­ve of the­se words and phra­ses, other varia­ti­ons of the­se words and phra­ses or comparable
ter­mi­no­lo­gy. Inves­tors are cau­tio­ned that the for­ward-loo­king state­ments in this docu­ment are based on
cur­rent beliefs, assump­ti­ons and expec­ta­ti­ons, speak only as of the date of this docu­ment and involve
risks and uncer­tain­ties that could cau­se actu­al results to dif­fer mate­ri­al­ly from cur­rent expec­ta­ti­ons. Such
state­ments are sub­ject to cer­tain known and unknown risks and uncer­tain­ties, many of which are difficult
to pre­dict and gene­ral­ly bey­ond AMD’s con­trol, that could cau­se actu­al results and other future events to
dif­fer mate­ri­al­ly from tho­se expres­sed in, or implied or pro­jec­ted by, the for­ward-loo­king infor­ma­ti­on and
state­ments. Mate­ri­al fac­tors that could cau­se actu­al results to dif­fer mate­ri­al­ly from cur­rent expectations
inclu­de, without limi­ta­ti­on, the fol­lowing: Intel Corporation’s domi­nan­ce of the micro­pro­ces­sor market
and its aggres­si­ve busi­ness prac­ti­ces may limit AMD’s abi­li­ty to com­pe­te effec­tively; AMD has a wafer
sup­ply agree­ment with GF with obli­ga­ti­ons to purcha­se all of its micro­pro­ces­sor and APU product
requi­re­ments, and a cer­tain por­ti­on of its GPU pro­duct requi­re­ments, from GLOBALFOUNDRIES Inc. (GF)
with limi­ted excep­ti­ons. If GF is not able to satisfy AMD’s manu­fac­tu­ring requi­re­ments, its busi­ness could
be adver­se­ly impac­ted; AMD reli­es on third par­ties to manu­fac­tu­re its pro­ducts, and if they are unab­le to
do so on a time­ly basis in suf­fi­ci­ent quan­ti­ties and using com­pe­ti­ti­ve tech­no­lo­gies, AMD’s busi­ness could
be mate­ri­al­ly adver­se­ly affec­ted; fail­u­re to achie­ve expec­ted manu­fac­tu­ring yiel­ds for AMD’s products
could nega­tively impact its finan­cial results; the suc­cess of AMD’s busi­ness is depen­dent upon its ability
to intro­du­ce pro­ducts on a time­ly basis with fea­tures and per­for­mance levels that pro­vi­de value to its
cus­to­mers while sup­por­ting and coin­ci­ding with signi­fi­cant indus­try tran­si­ti­ons; if AMD can­not generate
suf­fi­ci­ent reve­nue and ope­ra­ting cash flow or obtain exter­nal finan­cing, it may face a cash short­fall and
be unab­le to make all of its plan­ned invest­ments in rese­arch and deve­lo­p­ment or other strategic
invest­ments; the loss of a signi­fi­cant cus­to­mer may have a mate­ri­al adver­se effect on AMD; AMD’s receipt
of reve­nue from its semi-cus­tom SoC pro­ducts is depen­dent upon its tech­no­lo­gy being desi­gned into thirdparty
pro­ducts and the suc­cess of tho­se pro­ducts; AMD pro­ducts may be sub­ject to secu­ri­ty vulnerabilities
that could have a mate­ri­al adver­se effect on AMD; data breaches and cyber-attacks could compromise
AMD’s intel­lec­tu­al pro­per­ty or other sen­si­ti­ve infor­ma­ti­on, be cos­t­ly to reme­dia­te and cau­se significant
dama­ge to its busi­ness and repu­ta­ti­on; AMD’s ope­ra­ting results are sub­ject to quar­ter­ly and sea­so­nal sales
pat­terns; glo­bal eco­no­mic uncer­tain­ty may adver­se­ly impact AMD’s busi­ness and ope­ra­ting results; AMD
may not be able to gene­ra­te suf­fi­ci­ent cash to ser­vice its debt obli­ga­ti­ons or meet its working capital
requi­re­ments; AMD has a lar­ge amount of indeb­ted­ness which could adver­se­ly affect its finan­cial position
and pre­vent it from imple­men­ting its stra­te­gy or ful­fil­ling its con­trac­tu­al obli­ga­ti­ons; the agreements
gover­ning AMD’s notes and the Secu­red Revol­ving Line of Credit impo­se restric­tions on AMD that may
adver­se­ly affect its abi­li­ty to ope­ra­te its busi­ness; the mar­kets in which AMD’s pro­ducts are sold are highly
com­pe­ti­ti­ve; AMD’s issu­an­ce to West Coast Hitech L.P. (WCH) of war­rants to purcha­se 75 mil­li­on shares
of its com­mon stock, if and when exer­cis­ed, will dilu­te the owners­hip inte­rests of its exis­ting stockholders,
and the con­ver­si­on of the 2.125% Con­ver­ti­ble Seni­or Notes due 2026 may dilu­te the owners­hip interest
of its exis­ting stock­hol­ders, or may other­wi­se depress the pri­ce of its com­mon stock; uncertainties
invol­ving the orde­ring and ship­ment of AMD’s pro­ducts could mate­ri­al­ly adver­se­ly affect it; the demand
for AMD’s pro­ducts depends in part on the mar­ket con­di­ti­ons in the indus­tries into which they are sold.
Fluc­tua­tions in demand for AMD’s pro­ducts or a mar­ket decli­ne in any of the­se indus­tries could have a
mate­ri­al adver­se effect on its results of ope­ra­ti­ons; AMD’s abi­li­ty to design and intro­du­ce new products
in a time­ly man­ner is depen­dent upon third-par­ty intel­lec­tu­al pro­per­ty; AMD depends on third-party
com­pa­nies for the design, manu­fac­tu­re and sup­ply of mother­boards, soft­ware and other computer
plat­form com­pon­ents to sup­port its busi­ness; if AMD loses Micro­soft Corporation’s sup­port for its
pro­ducts or other soft­ware ven­dors do not design and deve­lop soft­ware to run on AMD’s pro­ducts, its
abi­li­ty to sell its pro­ducts could be mate­ri­al­ly adver­se­ly affec­ted; and AMD’s reli­an­ce on third-party
dis­tri­bu­tors and AIB part­ners sub­jects it to cer­tain risks. Inves­tors are urged to review in detail the risks
and uncer­tain­ties in AMD’s Secu­ri­ties and Exchan­ge Com­mis­si­on filings, inclu­ding but not limi­ted to AMD’s
Quar­ter­ly Report on Form 10‑Q for the quar­ter ended June 30, 2018.
