Intel Statement on Latest European Commission Action

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Intel Corporation today issued the following statement in response to allegations contained in the new Statement of Objections (SO) issued by the European Commission:

We're naturally disappointed the Commission has decided to issue a new SO. The issuance of a second SO suggests that the Commission supports AMD's position that Intel should be prevented from competing fairly and offering price discounts which have resulted in lower prices for consumers.

We will evaluate this newest SO and respond fully, but it's clear that the allegations stem from the same set of complaints that our competitor, AMD, has been making to regulators and courts around the world for more than 10 years.

We are confident that the worldwide microprocessor market is functioning normally and is highly competitive in Europe and elsewhere. Intel's conduct has always been lawful, pro-competitive and beneficial to consumers. As evidence of the existence of a highly competitive and innovative microprocessor market, consumers have benefited from prices that have gone down significantly, output has increased many times over, and the performance of products, including ours, has improved exponentially.

We are confident that our response will show that the allegations in the SO are unfounded.

Perhaps Intel needs to hire someone like Johnny Cochran!

 I kind of feel sorry for intel Microsoft and other companies that are at the top. So many people gun for their money. I guess the EU commission needs more money. My guess is no matter how much proof intel gives them they will be found guilty. My faith in them giving Fair trial to anyone is pretty much gone.

How is it not in Intel's best interest to offer discounts to customers for staying with their platform. That is good old fashion business. Drive around town and look at some brick and mortar stores offering 50% off or buy one get one free. Should all the other stores in that community file a lawsuit they were being uncompetative ? Sigh, where has common sense gone these days ? Amd needs to quit fileing lawsuits and start engineering. If you build a good product people will buy it. It is really that simple.
