In response to the charges the EU has accused Intel
of this week. Intel has come out to make their statements, Their response
is pretty much what you'd expect, claiming they think everything is just dandy:
Intel's senior vice president Bruce Sewell strongly defended the firm's position, and said in a statement: "We are confident that the microprocessor market segment is functioning normally and that Intel's conduct has been lawful, pro-competitive and beneficial to consumers."
The issue isn't just with the market now, but with years ago when AMD was struggling to get a foothold. The supposed rebates and other incentives Intel was giving, or conditional contracts for receiving Intel CPUs, are the biggest bones of contention.
AMD also responded in part, reiterating that they think this is a worldwide issue.
