Police in Taiwan have seized another 75,000 suspect Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) CPUs as well as 25,000 fake ST (STMicroelectronics)-brand flash memory chips. The seizures happened during a raid on Atop Electronics on March 8. The HQ of the company, located in Chungho, northern Taiwan, was targeted, as well as 14 business outlets of the company and its customers after AMD filed a lawsuit against chairman of Atop. The lawsuit is seeking action, claiming that Atop chairman Chen Yue-han is responsible for selling stolen products and infringing on AMD's intellectual property rights.
