Item 2.06 Material Impairments

On December 6, 2007, Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (the “Company”) concluded that the current carrying value of its goodwill which the Company had recorded as a result of its October 2006 acquisition of ATI Technologies Inc. was impaired. This conclusion was reached based on the results of an updated long-term financial outlook for the businesses of the former ATI Technologies Inc. as part of the Company’s strategic planning cycle conducted annually during the Company’s fourth quarter and based on the preliminary findings of the Company’s annual goodwill impairment testing that commenced in the beginning of October 2007.

The Company expects that the impairment charge will be material, but the Company has determined that, as of the time of this filing, it is unable in good faith to make a determination of an estimate of the amount or range of amounts of the impairment charge. The Company will file an amended report on Form 8-K/A under this Item 2.06 promptly and in any event within 4 business days after it makes a determination of such an estimate or range of estimates.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
