Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
Conflict Minerals Report
For the Reporting Period from January 1 to December 31, 2019
This Conflict Minerals Report for Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (“AMD”) covers the reporting period from January 1 to December 31, 2019 and has been prepared in accordance with Section 13(p) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), Rule 13p-1 and Form SD thereunder (the “Conflict Minerals Rule” or “Rule”). The Conflict Minerals Rule requires disclosure of certain information by companies filing reports with the Securities Exchange Commission (“SEC”) that manufacture, or contract to manufacture, products for which certain minerals specified in Section 13(p) of the Exchange Act and the Rule as “conflict minerals” are necessary to the functionality or production of those products. The term “conflict minerals” is defined as columbite-tantalite (coltan), cassiterite, gold, wolframite and their derivatives, which are limited to tantalum, tin and tungsten. For the purposes of this report, tin, tungsten, tantalum and gold will collectively be referred to as the “3TGs”. The term “Covered Countries” for purposes of the Conflict Minerals Rule are the Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”) and the following adjoining countries: the Republic of the Congo, the Central African Republic, South Sudan, Rwanda, Uganda, Zambia, Burundi, Tanzania and Angola.
AMD has determined that certain of its products contain 3TGs that are necessary to the functionality or production of such products. Accordingly, we are required under the Rule to conduct a good-faith, reasonable country of origin inquiry (“RCOI”) reasonably designed to determine whether any of the necessary 3TGs in our products either originated in the Covered Countries or came from recycled or scrap materials. The following is a brief description of the RCOI process and additional due diligence that AMD undertook in accordance with the Rule.
References in this Conflict Minerals Report to “AMD,” “we,” “us” or “our” mean Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. and our consolidated subsidiaries. The term “armed groups” means an armed group that is identified as a perpetrator of serious human rights abuses in annual Country Reports on Human Rights Practices under sections 116(d) and 502B(b) of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 relating to the DRC or an adjoining country.

For a detailed description of our business and products, see “Part I, Item 1—Business” of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 28, 2019, filed with the SEC. All of our products may contain one or more of the 3TGs, therefore, all of our products are in scope for this report.
Background of our Conflict Minerals Program
AMD has actively engaged with its customers and suppliers for several years with respect to the use of conflict minerals. Our actions stem from our responsible and inclusive culture and longstanding leadership in corporate responsibility.
Industry Engagement. We have contributed to industry efforts to address conflict minerals as a member of the Responsible Business Alliance (“RBA”) (previously named the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition, or the “EICC”) and have been an active member and contributor to the Responsible Minerals Initiative (“RMI”) (previously named the Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative, or the “CFSI”), an initiative organized by the RBA and the Global e-Sustainability Initiative to oversee independent third-party audits of smelters’ and refiners’ procurement and processing activities. AMD continues to be a company member in the RMI. We support the RMI’s efforts to develop standards and tools that benefit all companies working to break the link between minerals trade and conflict. Specifically, AMD staff participate in RMI multi-stakeholder calls and due diligence meetings, as well as utilize RMI tools and resources for CM reporting and risk management.
Transparency. A hallmark of our corporate responsibility program is transparency. Our efforts to be transparent are described in more detail under “Due Diligence—Step 5: Publicly Report our Supply Chain Due Diligence,” below.
Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry
        The Conflict Minerals Rule requires us to conduct in good-faith an RCOI. As part of our RCOI, we conducted a scoping exercise of our supply chain. To determine our supplier list, we analyzed the direct spend data for all of our products. We aggregated our direct spend data using internal software tools and further refined the data to focus on materials necessary to the functionality of our finished products. We also analyzed various other components of spend data, such as purchase orders, purchase descriptions, material groups, etc. to check for any potential gaps in our analysis. The direct spend data was used to identify our direct suppliers in scope for RCOI review, such as silicon wafer suppliers and outsourced assembly and test (“OSAT”) service providers and providers of materials that are incorporated into our products and that are necessary to the functionality of our finished products (collectively, our “Direct Suppliers”).
        To gain transparency and information on the conflict minerals in our supply chain, we asked each of our Direct Suppliers who contributed materials that directly impacted or became a part of our products, to provide us with information regarding conflict minerals in their respective supply chains. To collect this information, we partnered with a third-party service provider, Assent Compliance (“Assent”). Utilizing the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template version 5.12 or higher (the “CMRT”) developed by the RBA and The Global e-Sustainability Initiative, our in-scope suppliers were surveyed on their sourcing of the 3TGs that we identified in our products. The

2




CMRT was developed to facilitate disclosure and communication of information regarding smelters that provide materials to a company’s supply chain. It includes questions regarding a direct supplier’s conflict minerals policy, its due diligence processes, and the names and locations of smelters and refiners linked to its products.
All communications from our Direct Suppliers were tracked by Assent and all non-responsive suppliers were contacted a minimum of three times. Assent’s process also included automated data validation on all submitted CMRTs. The goal of this step was to increase the accuracy and validity of submission and identify any contradictory answers. Any invalid responses were flagged and those suppliers were contacted and encouraged to resubmit a valid form. As of May 2020, 100% of our in-scope suppliers submitted a CMRT. All final CMRT submissions were then used to identify smelters or refiners in our supply chain, which was then cross-referenced with the RMI data in order to conduct the RCOI.
Based on the RCOI, we had reason to believe that some of the 3TGs may have originated from the Covered Countries, therefore, in accordance with the Rule, we performed due diligence on the source and chain of custody of the conflict minerals in question.
Due Diligence
Design of our Due Diligence Framework
We designed our due diligence measures to conform to the due diligence-related steps of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas, Third Edition, including the related supplements on gold, tantalum, tin and tungsten (the “OECD Guidance”). The SEC has recognized the OECD Guidance as an appropriate nationally and internationally recognized due diligence framework for conflict mineral reporting purposes.
The design of our due diligence measures encompasses (i) establishing strong internal management systems, (ii) identifying and assessing risks in our supply chain, (iii) designing and implementing a response to manage identified risks, (iv) independent third-party audits of smelter or refiner due diligence practices, and (v) publicly reporting on our supply chain due diligence.
Step 1: Establish Strong Company Management Systems
Internal Management Systems. We have established an internal AMD conflict minerals team that is responsible for the development and oversight of our conflict minerals policy, due diligence process and the internal management systems that implement our conflict minerals policy. Our conflict minerals policy is available at https://www.amd.com/system/files/documents/conflict-minerals-policy.pdf. Our conflict minerals team is headed by our Corporate Vice President of Global Procurement, and includes representatives from our supply chain operations, corporate responsibility, government relations, law, and finance departments. We also use a third-party service provider, Assent, to assist with evaluating supply chain information regarding 3TGs, identifying potential risks, and in the development and implementation of additional due diligence steps that we will undertake with suppliers in regards to conflict minerals.

Control Systems. The CMRTs obtained from our Direct Suppliers allowed us to gather information that was important for our due diligence efforts, including the 3TGs contained in the Direct Suppliers’ products and the names of smelters or refiners in the Direct Suppliers’ own supply chain. We elected to use the CMRT because it is an internationally recognized and commonly used tool that facilitated efficient data gathering and aggregation. We also provided our Direct Suppliers with the RBA Code of Conduct and communicated with them our conflict mineral policy to source only from conformant RMAP or LBMA smelters and refiners.
Supplier Engagement. As described in “Designing and Implementing a Response to Identified Risks” below, we have engaged with our Direct Suppliers by communicating our expectations regarding their due diligence and information reporting efforts in order to improve the information reporting process. Additionally, in order to ensure our suppliers understand and complete the CMRT, AMD and Assent provided training materials/videos and resources, and actively responded to suppliers’ questions throughout the process. We also informed our suppliers of our process to track the submission of CMRTs from our supply base and escalate late or incomplete templates for follow-up action. Similar to last year, we utilized Assent’s online learning management system and provided all in-scope suppliers access to conflict minerals training courses. Assent tracked and monitored completion of the courses and we will continue to prioritize education in our conflict minerals program.
Grievance Mechanisms. We established open lines of communication that serve as grievance mechanisms to provide employees, suppliers and others outside of AMD to report violations of our policies or other concerns. Suppliers and others outside of AMD may contact our conflict minerals team to communicate with us, including to report grievances, via a dedicated email address that is published in our conflict minerals policy and in other communications with our Direct Suppliers. We have also actively participated in the RMI, which serves as an early warning system by sharing information with participants regarding supply chain risks relating to conflict minerals. In addition, our employees may anonymously report suspected violations using AMD Aware, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. AMD Aware is staffed by non-AMD personnel, who share any information reported with our Corporate Compliance Committee.
Maintenance of Records. We maintain a company-wide document retention policy, which extends to the documents accumulated in performing our due diligence for this Report.
Step 2: Identifying and Assessing Risks in our Supply Chain. To identify and assess risks in our supply chain relating to conflict minerals, we reviewed and aggregated the information contained in the CMRTs received from our Direct Suppliers.
The primary risk that we identified with respect to conflict minerals were instances when our Direct Suppliers identified smelters or refiners that were not listed on the RMI Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (“RMAP”) Standard Smelter List (the “RMAP List”). In accordance with OECD Guidelines, it is important to understand risk levels associated with conflict minerals and the sourcing of those mineral in the supply chain. The basis of this understanding stems from smelter or refiner information provided by our Direct Suppliers. Each facility that meets

4




the RMI definition of a smelter or refiner of a 3TG mineral is assessed according to red flag indicators defined in the OECD Guidance. AMD uses the following factors to determine the risk level of each smelter and refiner:
Geographic proximity to the DRC and covered countries;
Known mineral source country of origin;
Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (RMAP) audit status;
Credible evidence of unethical or conflict sourcing;
Peer Assessments conducted by credible third-party sources.
In addition, AMD also identified risk based on the accuracy and completeness of information contained in the CMRTs that we received from our Direct Suppliers. In the past, we have received CMRTs with data entry errors, such as missing information and information that appeared inaccurate based on the RMAP Standard Smelter List and the London Bullion Metal Association’s (“LBMA”) Good Delivery List. To address these errors, Assent made further inquiries, conducted additional follow-up, tracked and consolidated the responses to ensure completeness of the responses from our Direct Suppliers that we identified as having provided us a CMRT with errors. In addition to this, Assent’s process also included automated data validation on all submitted CMRTs, designed to increase the completeness and accuracy of submissions. While we work with our Direct Suppliers to ensure error-free reporting, we rely on the representations made by them.
Additionally, we evaluated our Direct Suppliers on the basis of four criteria, identified below, which further assisted us in identifying risk in the supply chain. By ensuring that the responses we received met the OECD Due Diligence Guidelines, we made key risk mitigation decisions to ensure compliance. The four criteria we used were based on the CMRT questions and included:
Have you established a conflict minerals sourcing policy?
Have you implemented due diligence measures in accordance with the OECD guidance?
Do you review due diligence information received from your suppliers against your company’s expectations?
Does your review process include mitigation actions and corrective action management?

When suppliers meet or exceed the above criteria (i.e. answering “Yes” to all four questions), they are deemed to have a strong program. When suppliers do not meet those criteria, they are deemed to have a weak program. Any suppliers that have been flagged as having a weak program were notified and provided guidance on how they can improve their internal conflict minerals policies and procedures.
To identify whether the smelters or refiners that potentially processed the 3TGs contained in our products have processes and systems that are aligned with the OECD Guidance, we compared the results of our compiled CMRT smelter list with the audit status of the list of smelters or refiners identified by our Direct Suppliers to the RMAP Standard Smelter List. We also validated smelters through RMAP’s cross-recognition policy, which mutually recognizes the independent third-party gold refiner audit programs from the LBMA and the Responsible

5




Jewellery Council (“RJC”). In addition, we identified smelters that are member companies of the Tungsten Industry – Conflict Minerals Council (“TI-CMC”) progressing toward RMAP validation.
Step 3: Designing and Implementing a Response to Identified Risks. We held meetings to review, among other things, our conflict minerals program, any potential or actual risks identified during due diligence and the status of CMRTs received from our Direct Suppliers. If and when our expectations are not met and if certain identified risks are not resolved, the business relationship between AMD and that supplier will be evaluated.
When facilities are identified as being of highest concern to the supply chain, risk mitigation activities are initiated. Through Assent, submissions that include any such facilities immediately produce a receipt instructing the supplier to take their own risk mitigation actions, including submission of a product specific CMRT to better identify the connection to products that they supply to AMD, and escalating up to removal of these high-risk smelters from their supply chain.
As per the OECD Due Diligence Guidance, risk mitigation will depend on the supplier’s specific context. Direct Suppliers are given clear performance objectives within reasonable timeframes with the ultimate goal of progressive mitigation of these risks. Furthermore, Assent provided our Direct Suppliers with educational materials on mitigating the risk of smelters or refiners on the supply chain using Assent’s online learning management system.
Step 4: Independent Third-Party Audits of Smelter’s and Refiner’s Due Diligence Practices. We did not directly conduct audits of the smelters or refiners in our supply chain but utilized and supported, through RMI membership, the RMAP and the LBMA’s Responsible Gold Programme to identify smelters or refiners who are conformant with their assessment standards, in alignment with the OECD Guidance. The RMI and LBMA have independently engaged third parties to audit the smelters’ or refiners’ management systems and procurement practices against their standards to demonstrate that the smelter or refiner is operating in accordance with the OECD Guidance. However, we have not reviewed the smelter and refiner independent third-party audit reports directly. Instead, we referenced the information published by RMI and LBMA. Through the RMI, we encouraged smelters or refiners to participate in the RMAP. Any smelters or refiners that were reported by our Direct Suppliers who were not part of the RMAP, were also contacted directly by Assent to encourage them to participate in the RMAP.
Step 5: Publicly Report our Supply Chain Due Diligence. We have published our conflict minerals policy and our annual corporate responsibility report on the Corporate Responsibility pages of our web site at https://www.amd.com/en/corporate-responsibility/supplier-conflict-minerals. Our Specialized Disclosure Report on Form SD for the reporting period from January 1 to December 31, 2019, which includes this Conflict Minerals Report, is also available at https://www.amd.com/en/corporate-responsibility/supplier-conflict-minerals.
Steps Taken to Mitigate Risk since December 31, 2019
Since December 31 2019, we have taken, or intend to take, the following steps to improve the due diligence conducted to further mitigate any risk that the necessary 3TGs in our products could benefit armed groups in the DRC or adjoining countries:

6




Continue to evaluate upstream sources through a broader set of tools to evaluate risk. These include, but are not limited to:
Using a comprehensive smelter and refiner library with detailed status and notes for each listing.
Scanning for credible media on each smelter and refiner to flag risk issues.
Comparing the list of smelters and refiners against government watch and denied parties lists.
Engage with suppliers more closely and provide more information and training resources regarding responsible sourcing of 3TGs.
Encourage suppliers to have due diligence procedures in place for their supply chains to improve the content of the responses from such suppliers.
Continue to include a conflict minerals flow-down clause in new or renewed supplier contracts, as well as included in the terms and conditions of each purchase order issued.
Following the OECD Guidance process, increase the emphasis on clean and validated smelter and refiner information from the supply chain through feedback and detailed smelter analysis.
Results of Due Diligence
Survey Results
        For the 2019 Reporting Year, we received CMRT responses from 100% of our in-scope Direct Suppliers. All final CMRT submissions were reviewed and validated to ensure no inaccuracies or gaps in data were found. These CMRT submissions were then used to review smelter and refiner data in order to determine mine or location of origin.
Efforts to Determine Mine or Location of Origin
To determine the mine or country of origin of the conflict minerals in our products, we utilized the RMI RMAP’s Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry Data (the “RMI RCOI Data”). The RMI RCOI Data provides country of origin information for the raw materials used by smelters or refiners that are reported by the RMAP as being conformant with their assessment standards (i.e., demonstrated with reasonable confidence that the smelter or refiner’s due diligence processes are aligned with the expectations in the OECD). Available RMI RCOI Data provides traceability upstream to countries of origin at an aggregate level. Since the most detailed information is shown as groupings of countries, we are unable to determine with certainty the specific countries from which the 3TG in our products may be sourced.
Smelters and Refiners
        Approximately 58% of our Direct Suppliers completed the CMRT at the Company, Business Unit, or User Defined level, rather than at the Product level for only those products that they provide to AMD. Therefore, those suppliers are unable to represent that the 3TGs from the smelters or refiners listed on their CMRT have been

7




included in products or parts that they have supplied to us. Due to this, our list of smelters or refiners may contain more facilities than those that actually processed the 3TGs contained in our products.
Table 1 below identifies the smelters or refiners that were audited by RMI or LBMA and reported as conformant with their assessment standards, in alignment with the OECD framework.
