Intel settles antitrust case with AMD

Intel logoIntel, the world’s largest maker of computer processors, will pay $1.25 billion to its biggest competitor, Advanced Micro Devices, to settle all antitrust and patent suits.  School of Management Professor Michael Salinger, a former director of the Federal Trade Commission (which also is investigating Intel), applauds the settlement.

“It’s a substantial settlement, which represents an acknowledgment by Intel that they were at serious risk of a finding against them.”
