ATI'S RAGE MOBILITY 128 GRAPHICS PROCESSOR POWERS APPLE'S NEW IBOOK PORTABLE COMPUTER.

ATI Technologies Inc. (TSE:ATY, NASDAQ:ATYT), a provider of graphics, video and multimedia solutions, has announced that Apple has selected ATI's RAGE MOBILITY 128 graphics chip for its new iBook notebook computer.

The RAGE MOBILITY 128 delivers industry-leading 3D graphics, razor-sharp 32-bit color, and an integrated DVD (digital versatile disc) decoder that lets users experience full-frame rate DVD movies.

The lightweight iBook packs the performance ideal for consumers and education. It features ATI's RAGE MOBILITY 128 graphics processor with an 8 MB (megabyte) integrated frame buffer and other leading-edge components. One of the highest performance graphics chips ever used in a laptop, the ATI RAGE MOBILITY 128 graphics processor has won numerous accolades, and helps users get the most fun out of fast-action games and multimedia titles by adding a tremendous speed boost, gorgeous 3-D images and stunning photo-realistic effects. Yet, its low power consumption contributes to the industry leading battery life of the iBook.

"The combination of the ATI RAGE MOBILITY 128 with the iBook's brilliant 12.1-inch CTFT (color thin film transistor) display with impressive 1024 X 768 pixel resolution is perfect for a high quality gaming experience and DVD movie playback," said Vincent Win, Vice President, Strategic Sales, ATI Technologies Inc. "ATI is committed to developing cutting-edge graphics solutions for the Apple community, and we look forward to continuing to provide Apple users with an unmatched graphics experience in the future."

"Apple's new iBook is the perfect tool for today's digital lifestyle," said Greg Joswiak, Apple's Senior Director of Portables Product Marketing. "With the RAGE MOBILITY 128 graphics processor, we're especially pleased to provide leading edge graphics in our consumer and education notebook."

RAGE MOBILITY graphics accelerators are designed to provide mainstream notebook computers with the 3D, 2D and multimedia performance previously available only with high-end systems, while also delivering industry-leading power and performance functionality, in a space-saving, highly integrated design.

RAGE MOBILITY accelerators feature a unique "single component graphics sub-system solution" that replaces the need for over six individual chips to provide memory and graphics functions. The single sub-system design results in important component cost savings, and low power consumption, twinned with long battery life for notebook computer systems.
