  SUNNYVALE, CA, Jan 24 (Marketwire) -- 
AMD (NYSE: AMD) was awarded two Eggies at Newegg's second annual Eggie
Awards on Jan. 10, 2013 at the International Consumer Electronics Show
(CES) in Las Vegas. AMD won Best Merchandising Campaign for its unique
"Never Settle" graphics marketing program, and John Torres, Sales Account
Manager at AMD, was awarded an EggXellence Award for outstanding
individual contribution to the business. 

    "This award underscores our commitment to delivering the best experience
for our customers through highly acclaimed merchandising programs," said
Roy Taylor, corporate vice president, AMD Channel Sales. "The 'Never
Settle' campaign is the natural outcome of a company committed to
technical excellence."

    The "Never Settle" marketing campaign was launched in October 2012, and

collaborating with the world's top developers, delivering exciting
graphics technologies and working closely with AMD sales partners. The
campaign featured a promotional giveaway of four of the world's top PC
games with the purchase of AMD's world-class AMD Radeon(TM) graphics
cards. CES 2013 also saw the launch of the AMD Radeon(TM) HD 8800M, HD
8700M, HD 8600M and HD 8500M graphics processing units (GPUs.)
