AMD Receives HPCwire Readers' Choice and Editors' Choice Awards

AMD Receives HPCwire Readers' Choice and Editors' Choice Awards 
AMD Recognized for Leadership in High Performance Computing 
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/12/12 --  AMD (NYSE: AMD)
announced today it has been recognized as a leader in high
performance computing (HPC), receiving two awards from HPCwire: a
Readers' Choice Award for 'Best HPC Collaboration between Government
and Industry' and an Editors' Choice Award for 'Top Five Vendors to
Watch.' These awards further underscore AMD's leadership position in
supercomputing with its AMD Opteron(TM) processor family and its
recent addition of the high performance AMD Opteron(TM) 6300 Series
processor. 
AMD technology is used in many of the world's leading supercomputers,
including the new Oak Ridge National Labs "Titan" supercomputer, the
top ranked supercomputer in the world according to the recently
released Top500 Supercomputer Sites list. AMD was also recently
awarded $12.6 million by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) as a
part of the Extreme-Scale Computing Research and Development Program.
This program aims to enable exascale computing and advance
simulation-based scientific discovery by performing up to one
quintillion calculations per second -- roughly one thousand times
faster than today's fastest available supercomputers. 
"AMD is committed to high performance computing with our AMD Opteron
processors, AMD FirePro(TM) graphics processors and ecosystem
support," said John Gustafson, AMD's senior fellow and chief product
architect, Graphics Business Unit. "We are honored to be selected by
both the readers and editors of HPCwire for the work we've been doing
to expand the boundaries of computational power. AMD has a long track
record of powering high performance computing, and we are continuing
to create supercomputing solutions that help solve difficult
scientific challenges in many different fields." 
HPCwire Readers' and Editors' Choice Awards are determined through
online polling of the global HPCwire audience for the Readers' Choice
Awards, combined with a rigorous selection process for the Editor's
Choice Awards, where winners are selected by a panel of editorial and
executive staff, recognized HPC luminaries and contributing editors
from across the industry.
