PR Daily noted that, "AMD's intrepidity and imagination, its cheekiness bordering on impudence, and its clever, massive social media campaign to support its social media news release, made it an easy winner in this category."

"We have a rich history of innovation at AMD, and these awards are a reflection of the energy and passion we bring to the table each day."
The honors add to the growing collection of PR, social media and marketing awards AMD received in the past year. The company has taken home 18 top honors in the past year from PR Daily, PR News, PR Weekly and the International Association of Business Communicators, Austin.
