World's First Notebook PC Capable of Cinematic Realism Powered By ATI; ATI's MOBILITY RADEON 9600 Mobile Visual Processor Now Shipping



MARKHAM, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 2, 2003--Dramatic visual effects, unmatched performance and vibrant cinematic realism are now available to notebook users for the first time, as ATI Technologies Inc. (TSX:ATY)(NASDAQ: ATYT) today announced that the MOBILITY(TM) RADEON(TM) 9600 mobile visual processor is now shipping in the Overdose RADEON(TM) 2040 XL notebook PC by Gericom, one of Europe's foremost notebook manufacturers.

The MOBILITY RADEON 9600 is the first mobile graphics processor to ship with full hardware support for Microsoft DirectX(TM) 9.0. It runs DirectX(TM) 9.0 graphics at full-speed, with full image quality and color precision at all times - a requirement for true-to-life cinematic special effects.

The first mobile graphics processor to be manufactured using the leading-edge 0.13 micron manufacturing process, MOBILITY RADEON 9600 offers higher DirectX 9.0 performance than any competitive chip.

Gericom's Overdose RADEON 2040 XL is powered by ATI's MOBILITY RADEON 9600 mobile visual processor with 64MB DDR RAM, an Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 Processor-M running at 2GHz, 512MB RAM, a 60GB hard drive, a DVD-R/RW drive, and a 15" SXGA+ panel display.

"Gericom has created a notebook that offers incredible cinematic imagery, performance and features superior to many high-end desktop PCs," said Phil Eisler, Vice President and General Manager, Mobile and Integrated Business Unit, ATI Technologies Inc. "MOBILITY RADEON 9600 once again demonstrates ATI's ability to bring powerful new technologies to market ahead of the competition."

MOBILITY RADEON 9600 uses an extraordinarily efficient 3D core delivering 12 pixel shader operations per clock cycle, and is a multimedia powerhouse with comprehensive hardware acceleration for encode, decode and de-blocking of MPEG-2 and streaming video formats. The MOBILITY RADEON 9600 also extends ATI's leadership in notebook graphics power management, giving users both the longest battery life and highest performance.

With the availability of MOBILITY RADEON 9600, ATI has extended its leadership by bringing the highest performance, cinematic realism and DirectX 9.0 graphics to all segments of the PC market - high-end and mainstream desktop and notebook PCs.
