....what? Intel was found guilty.
How are you judging the competence of AMD's legal team unless you were involved?

I am sure Intel has enough OEMs in their back pocket that even the rebate will would prove unnecessary.
No, it is different.... they key factor is not the size of the rebate. It is the marketshare.
Intel does not come close to having a majority of the mobile and tablet market. OEMs are not fully embracing x86 in this place due to ARM is already established.Edited by DuckieHo - 4/18/14 at 6:04am
