AMD Wins Big at PR Daily's 2012 Digital PR and Social Media Awards 
AMD Takes Home Record Eight Honors for PR, Marketing and Social
Media; 18 PR-Industry Awards in the Past Year for Communications
Campaigns 
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/14/13 --  Last month, AMD (NYSE:
AMD) was awarded eight top honors at PR Daily's annual Digital PR and
Social Media Awards, recognizing the company's marketing and
communications teams for executing innovative programs to increase
awareness for AMD solutions.  
The awards included 'Social Media News Release of the Year,' a
category that recognizes leading digital PR and social media
strategies, tactics and execution around a corporate or product
announcement.  
AMD won the awards for an innovative and fiercely competitive PR and
social media campaign to drive awareness of AMD FX processors by
setting a Guinness World Record and leveraging a competitor's
developer show to amplify AMD's story. PR Daily noted that, "AMD's
intrepidity and imagination, its cheekiness bordering on impudence,
and its clever, massive social media campaign to support its social
media news release, made it an easy winner in this category." 
"We appreciate the ongoing recognition from PR Daily and industry
peers for the campaigns AMD has implemented to strengthen our
engagement with customers, enthusiasts and fans," said Colette
LaForce, senior vice president and chief marketing officer, AMD. "We
have a rich history of innovation at AMD, and these awards are a
reflection of the energy and passion we bring to the table each day." 
The honors add to the growing collection of PR, social media and
marketing awards AMD received in the past year. The company has taken
home 18 top honors in the past year from PR Daily, PR News, PR Weekly
and the International Association of Business Communicators, Austin.
