Fathammer Developing Leading Edge 3D Wireless Entertainment Applications with ATI's Imageon® Graphics Hardware

Helsinki, Finland (October 13, 2005) - Fathammer, a leading publisher of advanced 3D mobile game technologies and games, announced today that it will cooperate with ATI Technologies Inc., one of the leading providers of graphics, video and multimedia products for desktop, workstation and notebook PCs, digital televisions, cell phones and game consoles, to develop new 3D wireless entertainment applications.

The cooperation is aimed at enhancing the growth of the 3D mobile entertainment market. ATI's new technology helps high performance content and applications to run in wireless devices. Device manufacturer LG's game phone LG360 is powered by ATI's technology and is carried by both Korean major mobile operators - SKT and KTF.

"3D games are a very important part of the future of mobile gaming. By working with ATI, a leader in the 3D space, we will continue to offer the most sophisticated games for wireless, with enhanced graphics and better frame rates," said Matti Airas, CEO of Fathammer. "Our current 3D titles - Stuntcar Extreme®, Toy GolfTM and Hockey RageTM - are already immensely popular with consumers and carriers. Through our relationship with ATI, we intend to publish more 3D products that push the boundaries of innovation and fun".

"The mobile market is just waiting for the kind of compelling 3D content that Fathammer develops that in turn takes advantage of the hardware capabilities of today's ATI graphics chips," said Neal Robison, Director of ISV Relations, ATI Technologies Inc. "The combination of ATI's Imageon® graphics hardware and Fathammer's innovative applications will continue to push the boundaries of 3D mobile entertainment in the years to come."
