Security holders may obtain a free copy of the proxy statement, when AMD files it with the SEC in the coming weeks, and other documents filed by AMD with the SEC at the SEC’s web site at http://www.sec.gov.

AMD and its executive officers and directors may be deemed to be participants in the solicitation of proxies from AMD’s stockholders with respect to the issuance of AMD shares and warrants pursuant to the Master Transaction Agreement. Information regarding such executive officers and directors is included in AMD’s Proxy Statement for its 2008 Annual Meeting of Stockholders filed with the SEC on March 14, 2008, which is available free of charge at the SEC’s web site at http://www.sec.gov and by contacting AMD Investor Relations firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone: (408) 749-4000.
