Intel made the x86 lnstructions set for their 8086 if i recall correctly. I do believe they licensed it to companies like VIA, IBM, Cyrix (i had one of these).
AMD still holds a license to x86 because AMD owns their own x86-x64 set which in turn they license to INTEL.
Bottom line , if one were to die like some , intelligently want in this thread, the other would have to fork out a lot of cash in order to continue doing what they are doing today.
INTEL depends on AMD and vice versa.
