imagine what would happen if intel pulled all their products from the eu market. companies would go broke left and right, the eu would beg intel to come back after half a year

Intel needs to make this move I would love it. How do you bribe someone not to buy someone elses product? If amd had a better deal any OEM would go for it and tell Intel to go pound sand. Amd needs their mommie:laugh: sniff sniff

Software A lot.
Benchmark Scores Its fast. Enough.
Most are dickering around here as if this were a sandbox and Jimmy was playing mean with Johnny.

This is business, and companies manipulate situations every day to gain better foothold and a better position. This suit initiated by AMD is just to shove Intel around a bit, and to stop the bribes and threats. How much has AMD sunk in legal costs they can't recover? How much has Intel been drug through the mud in the eyes of the general populace?

Really all AMD is looking for here is the same business punch as Intel pulled don them, and they won. But instead of it being short lived, this is going to haunt Intel for awhile, they will have their business scrutinized and looked at under a microscope. If nothing else, it will make them keep their nose clean for awhile and get back to the business of making better processors.

Anyone looked at AMD's website today? I wonder if they will be running ad's?

Yet another ridiculous ruling by the EC. Anyhow when I worked at a large PC manufacturer the problem with AMD was always availability, somehow Intel actually manages to produce almost enough chips at launch to meet demands. AMD is just trying to combat Intel's growth, and this is just one way to go about it.
