  1. Intel and AMD have had a troubled relationship in recent years. The latter sued Intel for antitrust violations, with allegations that have been picked up by others including U.S. and European regulators, while Intel has claimed AMD violated a licensing agreement for x86 technology with its GlobalFoundries spinoff. In a surprise announcement, however, the companies revealed today that they have now put an end to all legal actions.

    Besides the settlement this may be a great win for processing as a whole.

    AMD more money from intel than they did with the Phenoms. Maybe now they will have more money to make a better chip.

    Hmm, good news. Opening up doors I guess.

    But, 3rd party fabs isn't necessarily good.
    Quality over quantity, we do not want batches of defect products due to 3rd rate production, especially for stuff in the high end and mid range that AMD have to offer.

    Inhell is trying to look like it's a nice guy by doing this. But the damage has already been done. They need to be fined hard by the EU and US for their past anti-competitive practices.
