Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

The information in this Report, including the Exhibit 99.1 attached hereto, is furnished pursuant to Item 2.02 and Item 7.01 of this Form 8-K. Consequently, it is not deemed “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section. It may only be incorporated by reference in another filing under the Exchange Act or the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, if such subsequent filing specifically references this Form 8-K.

On April 19, 2007, Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (the “Company”) announced its financial position and results of operations as of and for the quarter ended March 31, 2007 in a press release that is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.

To supplement the Company’s financial results presented on a U.S. GAAP basis, the Company’s earnings release contains non-GAAP financial measures of non-GAAP operating income (loss), non-GAAP gross margin and adjusted EBITDA.

To derive non-GAAP operating income (loss) and non-GAAP gross margin, the Company excluded stock-based compensation expense and certain business combination accounting entries and expenses related to its acquisition of ATI Technologies, Inc. which closed on October 24, 2006. Specifically, these non-GAAP financial measures reflect adjustments based of the following items:

Stock-based compensation expense: Non-GAAP gross margin and operating income (loss) exclude stock-based compensation expenses. The Company adopted FASB Statement No. 123R, Share-Based Payments, on December 26, 2005, which requires that share-based payments, including employee stock options, be measured at their fair value and recorded as compensation expense in the Company’s financial statements. Prior to the adoption of Statement 123R, the Company was required to record stock-based compensation expense using the awards’ intrinsic value which generally resulted in no compensation expense being recorded in the financial statements. In accordance with the modified prospective method the Company used to adopt Statement 123R, the Company’s financial statements for prior periods have not been restated to reflect, and do not include, changes in the method to expense share-based payments, including employee stock options, at their fair values. Starting from the fourth quarter of 2006, the Company’s management no longer considers this non-cash expense in evaluating the business performance of the Company’s operating segments.

Acquisition-related and integration charges: The Company incurred significant expenses in connection with the ATI acquisition, which it would not have otherwise incurred and which the Company believes are not indicative on ongoing performance. Consequently, the Company excluded the effect of these charges from its GAAP operating income (loss) and gross margin. Acquisition-related and integration charges primarily consist of in-process research and development expenses, the amortization expense of acquired intangible assets, the cost of the fair value adjustment of acquired inventory and other charges incurred in connection with integrating the two companies. The Company believes that the exclusion of these amounts enables investors to better evaluate its current operating performance compared with prior periods.

In addition, the Company presented “Adjusted EBITDA” in the financial schedules to the earnings release. In the financial schedules, Adjusted EBITDA was determined by adjusting net income (loss) for interest expense, income tax, depreciation and amortization, and then, due to the significant expenses incurred in connection with the ATI acquisition, further adjusting EBITDA for in-process research and development charge and amortization expense of acquired intangible assets. For each of the three quarters in the periods ended October 1, 2006, EBITDA was determined by adjusting net income (loss) for interest expense, income tax, depreciation and amortization. In quarters prior to March 26, 2006, EBITDA was determined by adjusting net income (loss) for interest income, interest expense, income tax, depreciation and amortization. In the earnings release prior periods have been restated to conform to the presentation of the current quarter.

Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, the Company has provided reconciliations within the press release and financial schedules of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures.

The Company provided non-GAAP operating income (loss) and gross margin financial measures in the press release to reflect the results without acquisition-related and integration charges and employee stock-based compensation expense. The Company’s management believes this non-GAAP presentation will aid investors by presenting current and historical results in a form that makes it easier to compare current period operating results with historical operating results.

The Company calculated and communicated Adjusted EBITDA in the financial schedules because management believes it is of interest to investors and lenders in relation to its overall capital structure and its ability to borrow additional funds.

The Company’s calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may or may not be consistent with the calculation of this measure by other companies in the same industry. Investors should not view Adjusted EBITDA as an alternative to the U.S. GAAP operating measure of net income or U.S. GAAP liquidity measures of cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA does not take into account changes in certain assets and liabilities as well as interest and income taxes that can affect cash flows.

Management does not intend the presentation of these non-GAAP measures to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These non-GAAP measures should be read only in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
