Besides, It's not like AMD didn't have sales going on anyways. They have plenty of system builders here who buy their stuff.

Did you read about what they were fined for? Of course they deserved it.

I did, and yes it was unfair, but oh well. I don't want to continue further lest my posts become biased.

I don't think that fine is sufficient.

It's great news until AMD /does/ lose the rights to the x86. Which I suppose in turn will make Intel lose the x64-86. It's generically bad news for both proc companies.

Except for intel wont loose the rights for X-64 until the contract is up for renewal

besides which with a contract this big and important there must be an adr clause depending on the type chosen this could just go to a third party arbitrator to resolve this
