Posted: October 4, 2006 08:57AM
- "A European Commission review panel weighed evidence against Intel Corp. this week to decide whether to bring formal antitrust charges for competing unfairly against rival Advanced Micro Devices Inc., a source familiar with the situation said on Tuesday. The Commission has been investigating Intel INTC.O to determine if it used illegal techniques such as unfair rebates to prevent smaller AMD AMD.N from expanding its market share. There is no deadline for the commission to decide whether to take the case further. All of the central processing units for the world's one billion personal computers -- most of the computers there are -- are manufactured by either Intel or AMD."
