(Auszug aus der Pressemitteilung)

MARKHAM, Canada/ Munich, Germany —May 23, 2006 – ATI Technologies’ (TSX:ATY)(NASDAQ:ATYT) superior support of Microsoft Windows Vista™ has made the company’s graphics processors the natural choice to power an overwhelming majority of demo PCs running the new operating system at WinHEC, May 22-25 in Seattle, WA. Over 220 Windows Vista demo systems on display at the event feature ATI graphics processors—a testament to ATI’s exceptional driver stability and advanced support of the new operating system which is set to launch to consumers in January 2007.
